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 the girl he thought he knew.

----------------------------------------------------------
I absolutely loved the whole concept of the book. It starts off really fun with Quentin finally able to hang out with a childhood friend and realizing that she was all he thought she was. Then later when Margo disappears he slowly comes to terms with knowing that Margo is many different peoples interpretations of her rolled into one.

John Green wrote an amazing story that I couldn't get enough of. I was constantly laughing and having a great time. All great things in a story were mixed together. It was nice to even get a little bit of a mystery. Also I can't help but connect Paper Towns with Looking for Alaska. I don't think I could choose a favorite.

If you haven't read this one do it soon. Paper Towns is hilarious, and meaningful, and amazing. You and all of your friends will adore it.

I love the difference between Paper Towns and Look for Alaska, they both focus on this girl that no one really knows, but by the end of Paper Towns Quentin finally realizes she's not just what he wants her to be. Alaska's friends never really had the chance to see that, so they're forever stuck with this image of her that she gave them.
So glad to see another John Green book lover!
