Chapter 19

fifty-two days before

  • The day everyone leaves, Alaska and Miles spend time in the soccer field, reading a Kurt Vonnegut book and sharing some wine Alaska buried in the soccer field. Miles is so tempted to tell Alaska that he loves her.
  • But before he can blurt out the words, Alaska states that the labyrinth (see Chapter 2) is not life or death, it's suffering and pain.
  • And Alaska muses that suffering is something the religions they've studied in Hyde's class have in common. In fact, how do we get even out of the labyrinth of suffering?
  • Meanwhile, Miles (ever the adolescent boy) tries to kiss Alaska, but she stops him and tells him not to ruin it.
