Paper Towns

Title: Paper Towns

Author: John Green

Rating: 4 stars

Summary: When Margo Roth Spiegelman beckons Quentin Jacobsen in the middle of the night - dressed like a ninja and plotting an ingenious campaign of revenge - he follows her. Margo's always planned extravagantly, and, until now, she's always planned solo. After a lifetime of loving Margo from afar, things are finally looking up for Q . . . until day breaks and she has vanished. Always an enigma, Margo has now become a mystery. But there are clues. And they're for Q.

Review: At first, I thought Margo was awesome because anyone who dresses up as a ninja and breaks into Sea World is. As the book went on I became annoyed with her, almost to the point of strong dislike. Margo was so self-centered; having everyone worry about as she ran away time after time, leading Q on what she thought was a wild goose chase to find her while he thought she was dead. She had sunk her hooks so deep into Q that he was willing to miss his graduation to go on a 20-hour road trip to try to bring her back to Orlando. Q turned out to be the awesome one by doing whatever it took to search out the girl he loved. Also, Ben and Radar were awesome because they were willing to go with Q on the road trip. There was one part where I actually laughed out loud, but that was it for emotions. Despite Margo's short-comings, John Green is still an amazing author.
