The Blurb

Quentin Jacobsen has 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 of the girl he thought he knew.


My Review

Paper towns is yet another book written by John Green which is absolutely remarkable. I found it so easy to get into and even easier to fall in love with. My favorite has to character go to be Margo Roth Spiegelman. I found her so interesting and so intriguing. I found the way Margo describes life is incredible. I also love how she describes Chicago as being the ‘paper town’. “You can see how fake it all is. Its a Paper Town. I mean come on look at it.” However one thing that I really found disappointing about this book was the ending. The book just ends, like I expected more to happen. Despite this I absolutely adored the book and it is defiantly worth reading.

OOOOOOOO and there’s gonna be a movie soon….. I CANT WAIT!!!!

I recommend this book to anyone who loves John Green, mysteries, romance and a funny book 🙂
