NEW YORK — John Green's "Looking for Alaska," published nearly a decade ago, will be reissued in a special anniversary edition.

Penguin Young Readers announced Tuesday that an "enhanced" volume of Green's coming-of-age story set at an Alabama boarding school will come out in 2015, a decade after its original release. The book will include an introduction by Green, best known for his million-selling "The Fault in Our Stars"; the author's responses to reader questions; and previously unpublished material. "Looking for Alaska" was Green's first book. It won the Michael L. Printz Award for best young adult novel.

Sarah Polley, the actress and director, is planning a film adaptation of "Looking for Alaska."
