Teen Review: “Paper Towns” by John Green
Quentin has spent his whole life living next to who he thinks is the coolest girl in the world, Margo Roth Spiegelman. They were tight friends as kids, but slowly the social barriers of school separated them. A couple weeks before their high school graduation, Margo Roth Spiegelman forces her way back into Q’s life for one more night. She has meticulously planned an 11-step revenge plot to be executed, all before the sun rises. Margo needs a getaway driver and his car (Quentin). After Margo completely cuts off all of her ties with her popular friends, Quentin thinks that maybe things between them can change, but the next morning, and the morning after that, Margo never shows up to school. Having run away in the past, Margo has been known to leave clues as to her whereabouts. Q, having found some clues, is convinced Margo wants him to find her, but is he smart enough to figure them out? This John Green book, like all of his books, is a personal journey for the main character, and it contains some laugh-out-loud quirks.
