Paper Towns by John Green



Quentin is only weeks away from graduating high school, moving on to a good college and starting a successful life. However, he hits a little snag before that can happen. The unrequited love of his life, Margo Roth Spiegleman, who just happens to be his neighbor and childhood friend, un-expectantly shows up at Quentin’s window in the middle of the night. This visit sparks a night of pranks, revenge, and fun. It is one of the best nights of Quentin’s life, but it also sets him on a mysterious search that will change how he looks at the world forever.

This is still in my top 5.
I thought the last 3rd of the book was really funny, and it made the whole book. Sort of like Penelope Cruz in Vicky Cristina Barcelona.

This one isn't in my top 5. It was a great book but there are plenty i loved more. Maybe part of the prob. is that this book was so anticipated by so many that it was unable to live up to the hype for me. I've liked other books by him better.

I am on page 180 or so and REALLY struggling. I can not stand Quentin. I just want to shake him and tell him to stop being such a self absorbed little baby.
