    •Life is always unexpected. You'll never know what would happen next. But, always remember to seize the day, and live your life to the fullest as long as you're alive.

    (The labyrinth, a symbol for life, is a great mystery. It is always unexpected)

    •Friendship is very important. When everything just seems falling down, you can always count on them to lift you up. And when they need you, you should also help them in the best way you can.

    (The title, Looking for Alaska, signifies Alaska's friends searching for her true purpose of dying.)

    •You should not dwell in the past too much. If someone dies, move on. If someone begs your forgiveness, accept it. Never hold grudges to people.

    (The letter made by Miles in the last pages. “So I know she forgives me, just as I forgive her.” This is when Miles realize that he doesn't need to be angry at Alaska for killing herself.)

    You should write about these themes; existence and self discovery, mortality and friendship.

    Miles goes through self discovery and has the most character development in the book. You could connect this point to beauty standards/ self acceptance etc.

    Most people don't seem to realise how much death affects our lives. The book basically shows us that death is inevitable an we should live life to the fullest.
