Paper Towns
By John Green

3.5 out of 5

Quentin Jacobsen has lived next door to the amazing and mysterious Margo Roth Spiegelman all of his life. He has always marveled at her from a distance. They used to be friends when they were young, but have grown apart when they got into high school. Then, on one fatful night, Margo asks for Q's help in one of her crazy and intricate plans. After spending the entire night driving around causing mischief, Q is sure things will be different between him and Margo. But when he gets to school the next day, Margo is gone, and isn't coming back. This sets off a wild chase for Margo, but will Q ever find her? And if he does, will she be what he wants her to be?

Let me just start by saying, that I love John Green. I have a number of his books (Will Grayson, Will Grayson; An Abundance of Katherines, Looking for Alaska) and I loved them all. In the beginning of this book, I loved it too. Then somewhere in the middle, it became a little pathetic and seemed to lag. But then it picked back up and ended in the typical John Green fantastically moving way. The ending of this book is so powerful and it made the book for me!
