Looking for Alaska: 15. Eighty-Four Days Before Summary & Analysis

It rains for days in Birmingham, and no one socializes. Miles tries to eat dinner with Alaska, but she tells him she doesn’t feel like answering anything that begins with “how, when, where, why, or what.” When he asks her if he’s done anything wrong, she condescendingly says, “Of course not, sweetie.”
Alaska is consciously behaving in a mysterious way, but she gets annoyed with Miles for trying to understand what’s going on and suggesting that he might have something to do with it. In moods like this, she is impossible to please.
