Paper Towns by John Green

Quentin Jacobsenhas spent a lifetime loving the magnificently adventurous Margo Roth Spiegelman from afar. So when she cracks open a window and climbs back into his life--dressed like a ninja and summoning him for an ingenious campaign of revenge--he follows.

After their all-nighter ends and a new day breaks, Q arrives at school to discover that Margo, always an enigma, has now become a mystery. But Q soon learns that there are clues-and they're for him. Urged down a disconnected path, the closer he gets, the less Q sees the girl he thought he knew.

Paper Towns Paper Towns Paper Towns what to say about it other that its completely and totally awesome and John Green is a genius. I'm pretty sure that its one of my favorite books of the year. The characters were all down to earth and amazing and I was really able to connect with them. Q's character was one of the best he kind of reminded me of Miles from Looking for Alaska. Margo's character was a bit dramatic but thats what I enjoyed most about her, I enjoyed the mysterious role that she played in the book. My favorite part of the book is definantly the party with the beer can sword. I'm happy to say that while reading I spent most of my time laughing out loud, I love when books make me do that. I definantly recommend this to all teens and even adults, its a great book that everyone who reads it will definantly enjoy.

John Green is also the author of Looking for Alaska and An Abundance of Katherines as well as one of the co-authors of Let it Snow. To learn more about the author and his books check out:

Who doesn't like to laugh! I love books that are deep with a meaning but make you crack up the whole time.

I suggest you read You don't know me... by David Klass. I loved it!

I just bought Paper Towns, but haven't been able to read it yet. I've never read John Green before, but if I like it I'm definitely going to read everything he's written!

Thanks for the review!

Good review! I heard a lot about the book. Do you think it's better than Looking for Alaska? Or is it pretty much the same concept? I haven't read Looking for Alaska yet, the text on the back cover of the book didn't seem that good to me. Maybe I should give it another chance?

I don't usually read much realistic fiction, but I do if there's something a bit abnormal or unusual about it. I don't like reading the same drama-filled high school stories over and over. But this doesn't sound a bit like that. I've read An Abundance of Catherines, and while it wasn't my favorite book ever, it had that quality that gets me to read a realistic fiction book... and Paper Towns seems to have it too!
