Quentin Jacobsen has spent a lifetime loving the magnificent Margo Roth Spiegelman from afar. So when she cracks open a window and climbs back into his life—summoning him for an ingenious campaign of revenge—he follows. When their all-nighter ends and a new day breaks, Margo has disappeared. But Q soon learns that there are clues—and they’re for him. Embarking on an exhilarating adventure to find her, the closer Q gets, the less he sees the girl he thought he knew.

              I think that John Green is a fantastic author who's writing can rlly hit you in the feels. Unfortunately Paper Towns is (in my opinion) one of his worser books. It was rather boring.

                Quentin loves Margo.He's pretty sure Margo will never have anything to do with him. But the truth is, Margo's been having friendship--and love--troubles.Her friend Becca has stolen her boyfriend Jase, and sneaky Lacey knows and isn't telling. One night,Margo takes Quentin on a revenge trip--capturing pics of naked Jase as he runs out of Becca's house, stuffing a catfish under the seat of Lacey's car, putting Vaseline on the door handles of bullies, etc. The next day, Margo is on the run. Quentin wants to know where to, and why and how.In a second-hand minivan, Q and his best pals go on the worst--and best and wildest--car trip of their lives. I love how Margo has the ability to change people if you stay around her. Shy and moody Ben becomes loud and daring, while quiet and thoughtful Radar turns fun and outspoken.This book was overall amazing. Another beautiful story by John Green, you must read this!

This book is one of the best books i've ever read.I really would suggest this book if your 7th grade or older because it has some bad language. The book takes place was orlando florida .the protagonist is margo.the antagonists is lacey.margo bringing his girlfriend over to his weird parents house.i recommend this book if you are a mature person and reader because it has some language.
