Description from Goodreads:
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 am a big fan of John and Hank Green's Youtube channel, The Vlogbrothers, so I was nervous about reading John Green's writing; I didn't want anything tarnishing my love for them!
I adored Paper Towns!
It's a clever and quirky story that has a very organic feel to it. The characters and their flaws were so real. And the message in this book? Fantastic.
I thought maybe the ending would leave me unsatisfied, but it didn't. The last paragraph is perfection.
The name Margo Roth Spiegelman will forever be stuck in my brain, like a catchy commercial jingle.
I highly recommend this book. I think that this story is enjoyable on many different levels, and therefor a wide gamut of people could find things to love about this story.

They sing songs, rant about random things, promote awesomeness, and are just generally fun and nice. Want a book related video? Check out John Green at the American Library Association's Annual Conference, appropriately titled:
