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.
I’m not going to lie, this is one of my favorite John Green books. One of the main reasons why I love Paper Towns is because of the cleverly written plot. I have never seen a book so engrossing and ridiculously fascinating. Everything about this book screams adventure! Quentin’s boring life is turned upside down when Margo moves in next door. A lot happens between the two of them (Which I won’t specify because I don’t want to spoil it for you). Suddenly, one day, Margo disappears leaving behind clues that no one in their sane mind would’ve thought of. And, guess what? The person who makes an effort to find her is Q and his buddy, Ben. As most of them say, it’s Q’s journey rather than the destination that matters most. The best part about this book is the portrayal of characters and the seamless flow from one scene to another. It felt as if I were observing a teenager living their life. The author tries to go in-depth to bring out the realistic personality of the characters which cannot be seen upfront. Last but not the least, the mysterious spark this book holds cannot be ignored, because it exceptionally intrigues the readers, making them want to read more. Overall, I would highly recommend this book to readers who are up for an adventure.
