Protagonist and teenager Miles "Pudge" Halter is the first-person narrator of the novel Looking for Alaska.
Looking for Alaska is told mostly in the past tense. In several dramatic passages, the author writes in the present tense.
Enigmatic, quirky, and damaged, Alaska Young is a girl at school with whom Miles becomes enamored. Before Alaska dies, Miles continually tries to figure her out. After she dies, Miles looks for pieces of her everywhere he goes. Hence, he is both figuratively and metaphysically Looking for Alaska.
