Alaska says this to Miles. Miles would remember this quote very well because it is one of the only hints that Alaska may be depressed. Even though she jokes, makes the book quite humorous, and makes Pudge laugh--she reveals a vulnerable part of herself.
Maybe there's something you're afraid to say, or someone you're afraid to love, or somewhere you're afraid to go. It's gonna hurt. It's gonna hurt because it matters. - John Green, Looking for Alaska #literary #quotes
