But today, I'm paying tribute the embarrassing, unplanned moments and more importantly, to John Green's, Looking For Alaska. A book I recently had the pleasure of reading.
|Looking For Alaska|
Any of you who have read this book will remember Miles' first "almost date" with Lara which is supposed to be followed by his first "almost hook up." Unfortunately, this turns out to be one big epic fail after Miles is knocked over by a basketball at a school game, hits his head on the gym floor, and in his concussed state, he spews all over the lovely Lara's shoes.Charming. I know.
Does life get any more humiliating than that? Hard to say. But I asked my super awesome teen panel what they thought were the worst places to be when you're about to spew, concussed or not, this has happened to all of us...so here we go:
#5-A bus or public transportation
#4-Crowded swimming pool
#2-During a stage performance
I'm feeling the heavy waves of humiliation just from typing this list! Oh man...I can't even imagine. Now we want to hear from you...in fact...tells us your most embarrassing, completely true spew story in the comment section and The Perfect 10 and myself will choose the story containing the highest level of humiliation and award that person with a personalized signed copy of Tempest, by yours truly.
We'd also love to hear what you thought about our featured YA novel, Looking For Alaska and a few of The Perfect 10 will be giving their short reviews in the comment section as well. It seems I'm not the only one inspired by the awesome writing of YA author, John Green.
