Alaska is the wild, moody, unpredictable and enigmatic girl who captures Miles' attention and heart from the first time he meets her. She acts as a confidant to her friends, frequently assisting them in personal matters, as well as dealing in cigarettes and alcohol.

Miles Halter is instantly attracted to her, but unfortunately Alaska has a long distance boyfriend (Jake). Alaska is the type to always have a boyfriend. She is experienced with boys.

Alaska declared in the book that she does not have a home. She never wants to go visit home and stays at Culver Creek during most holidays. She convinces Pudge to stay with her at school over Thanksgiving. Alaska is very flirty and forward with Miles, but tried her hardest to not let things get beyond the flirting stage, because she loves her boyfriend.

Alaska has a fake ID, which helps her get Strawberry Hill wine and cigarettes from town. She buries the wine at the soccer field so it's never found. Miles is the only person to know about where Alaska stashes her wine.

She's dead.

She was killed in a fatal car crash after attempting to go and put flowers on her mother's grave she forgot. She was most likely drunk and upset and crashed into a police car on her way. Everyone at school had thought it was a suicide attempt until Pudge And The Colonel had debunked her so-called Suicide.
