This One Scene Got ‘Looking for Alaska’ on the Banned Books List

By

Hulu’s Looking for Alaska has finally arrived! As you may or may not know, the eight-episode limited series is based on John Green’s first novel of the same name. 

The show follows Miles “Pudge” Halter (Charlie Plummer) as he enrolls in boarding school in order to seek his life purpose. 

While there, he finds a group of friends and falls in love with the mysterious Alaska Young (Kristine Froseth). When tragedy strikes, Miles and his friends try to make sense of it all.

What you may also not know is that the book Looking for Alaska has been banned from many schools and libraries. So, why was Looking for Alaska a banned book? 

(By the way, we’ll be avoiding major series and book spoilers, but there will be some discussion of certain plot elements!)
