Paper Towns by John Green
Who is the real Margo?
Jacobsen has spent a lifetime loving the magnificently adventurous
Margo Roth Spiegelman from afar. So when she cracks open a window and
climbs 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 the girl he thought he knew...
I enjoy John Green's writing, the quirky characters that he creates tend to pull me in. I like how he takes ideas and explores them, and Paper Towns is no exception. He examines how we see each other, and what it takes to really know another person -- huge topics, and full of teenaged angst.
The actual story is good, and moves at various speeds. I found that I liked the main character, Quentin, and really wanted to see how things would work out for him and see if he would find the real Margot.
Overall, a good young adult read, especially for those who like quirky fiction.
