Did You Know?


The source novel was based on John Green's experience as a student at the boarding and day school Indian Springs near Birmingham, Alabama. In an August 2010 Vlogbrothers video titled "Looking for Alaska at My High School," Green revisited Indian Springs and said, "my first novel, 'Looking for Alaska,' was about a guy from Florida who's obsessed with the dying words of famous people, and then leaves home to go to a boarding school in Alabama. And I myself was once a a guy from Florida who was obsessed with the dying words of famous people, and then left home to go to a boarding school in Alabama....'Looking for Alaska' really is fictional, but the setting really isn't. The school in the book is called Culver Creek, but it is almost inch for inch the same place that Indian Springs School was in 1995." See more »

User Reviews

A very well executed show.
19 October 2019 | by keithsonatraSee all my reviews

I just gave this show a chance like what the heck and I have to say I am impressed. For a teen high school Dramedy this takes a very refreshing approach and the story, characters, and actors portraying the characters are great. I never read the book this story came from but going off this show I would guess the book is Amazing. I loved the movie paper towns, which I believe came from a book that was written by the same author who wrote this story. With that said, this is definitely worth a binge. Its better than the majority of shows they are trying to put out these days.

So I had to come back after finishing the series... And omg this is a MASTERPIECE. The only thing bad about it is that it ofcourse wont be a season 2. I appreciate the entire staff of this production... Well done... Bravo. To think I was going on hulu to find some anime to blaze to... And I found this GEM. A must watch... My first rating was a nine but Ill give this one of my first perfect scores. I gave it nine because I was only half way through and after what Game of thrones did to me Im always a lil skeptical... But this was a pure work of art.
