2.2 I recommend this book for children over the age of 13
2.2.1 contains drugs, alcohol and sexual content
2.3 The author John Green made you connect with Alaska and when she died he made you feel sad.
3 TECHNIQUES USED BY THE AUTHOR
3.1 John Green uses a lot of describing techniques in his book. He will use many adjectives, similes and metaphors to give the reader a better picture of the book.
3.2 A technique he uses that makes the book unique is he counts the day and makes the number of the day the title of the chapter. e.g. One hundred and thirty-six days before. Before is before Alaska dies. John then uses number of days + after to show after Alaskas death
