For Sale By Owner

Miles Halter leaves his home in Florida to attend Culver Creek Preparatory High School in Alabama for his junior year. He uses François Rabelais’s last words—"I go to seek a Great Perhaps"[4]—as his argument for choosing boarding school at such a late age. Miles is fond of reading biographies, and particularly of memorizing the last words of famous people.

Soon after arriving at Culver Creek, Miles meets his roommate, Chip "The Colonel" Martin. The Colonel nicknames Miles "Pudge", due to Miles's slender physical appearance. He then introduces Pudge to his friends Takumi Hikohito and Alaska Young. Takumi is a gifted emcee/hip-hop enthusiast, and Alaska Young is a beautiful, but emotionally unstable, girl. After hearing Pudge's obsessions with famous last words, Alaska informs him of Simón Bolívar's final words: "Damn it. How will I ever get out of this labyrinth!"[5] Miles asks her what the labyrinth is and the two make a deal: if Pudge figures out what the labyrinth is, Alaska will find him a girlfriend.
