Miles Halter loves memorizing the last words of famous people, and is searching for “The Great Perhaps” that he concluded would lead him to a greater realization about life and help him understand the world around him.
He then begins his first year at Culver Creek High School as a junior. Upon arriving campus, he meets his roommate - Chip, who claims to be called as The Colonel. After the two meet and talk, The Colonel gives Miles the nickname Pudge.
The Colonel takes Pudge to meet Alaska Young, his long time friend, whom Pudge begins to have feelings for.
The following day, the three of them have their first round of classes. Later on, he bumps into Alaska and she promises Pudge that she will get him a girlfriend.
As winter break came, the Colonel and Takumi return home for Christmas festivities. Alaska and Pudge are forced to spend more quality time together and slowly, they became better friends.
During the break, they go through searching through other people’s rooms and make a replica of Mt. St. Helens out of burnt candles. The Colonel, returns to save Alaska and Pudge from a lonely Thanksgiving and gives them a great Thanksgiving feast.
Alaska is blamed for breaking the number one rule: ratting people out. But she slowly began to redeem herself in the Colonel’s eyes by coming up with a pre-prank that would act as a counter-insurgency to the people who had been harassing Pudge and Alaska.
One night Alaska, the Colonel and Pudge were drinking their problems away and suddenly, Alaska mysteriously leaves for a few minutes to call Jake.
The following morning, both were woken up by the Eagle who tells them that a traumatic event has happened and asked all the students to gather in the gym.
Questions constantly started to arise which had influenced Pudge and the Colonel to investigate the mystery of Alaska’s death - from drinking excessively to calling Jake and other people.
Takumi discloses some information that solves the puzzle.
Alaska had forgotten her mother’s death anniversary and felt that she had let her mother down, just like she did the night she had died.
Pudge and the Colonel pull off a prank that Alaska had originally thought off - hiring a male prostitute to strip on stage during a public speaking function of the school.
Alaska will forever live on his, the Colonel’s, Lara’s, and Takumi’s memory.
