Margo and Quentin are just getting to know each other, but little does Quentin know, he might never see her again. Paper Towns by John Green is a mysterious realistic fiction book that will have your eyes glued to the pages. I really enjoyed this book and think it is a great read for people of all ages. A solid ten out of ten would have to be rewarded for this amazing story.
The book begins with describing a boy, Quentin, who has feelings for a girl, Margo. Margo is different, she is special, adventurous, not basic, just plain different. So different that she broke into Quentin’s bedroom at one a.m. and took him on the journey of his life up until six a.m. where he was back in bed pretending like nothing ever happened, which was hard for him considering he had broke into three people's houses and drove to SeaWorld. However, hoping he and Margo could finally be friends, he goes to school and finds that Margo isn't there. He thought nothing of it until she didn't show up for the rest of the week, and the week after that, and the week after that. Now it's up to Radar and Ben, Quentin’s best friends, and Quentin to find her and it takes more than you would think.
Some reasons I believe that this book is great is because it is mysterious. You know just as much as Quentin does which makes it suspenseful. Also the clues she is leaving makes you want to spend time figuring them out as well. For example the highlighting, if you don't know what that is, then read the book to find out! Something that this story reminds me of is another work by Green which is The Fault in Our Stars which reminds me of this because of the boy and girl relationship that resembles friendship turned to love. If you enjoy other books by John Green I would recommend this one to you. Some other books written by John Green include Looking for Alaska, The Fault in Our Stars, Let it Snow, and much more. He tends to write dramatic and realistic scenarios that can appeal to people who like adventure and drama.
Overall, with my past reviews you can see that I give an honest opinion about the books I review, and with Paper Towns I would give a strong ten out of ten because of the fun tale, exciting plot, and mysterious rising action. I highly recommend this book if you are looking for a good read.
