Title: Paper Towns
Author: John Green
Summary:Every once in a while you read a story that becomes an instant favorite. One so good you can’t stop telling everyone about it. This is one of those books, which shouldn’t be a surprise, since author John Green’s previous books Looking for Alaska and An Abundance of Katherines were also outstanding.
In Paper Towns we meet Q, a smart, nice kid drifting through his last days of high school, and his neighbor, childhood friend, and longstanding crush Margo Roth Spiegelman. When the enigmatic Margo appears at his window on a school night, Q has no idea that he is in store for quite an adventure. And when Margo doesn’t show up at school the next day, he realizes that the story is just beginning. Following clues she left behind, Q and his friends piece together the mystery that is Margo Roth Spiegelman as they also move towards the unknown future. Will their lives be merely paper? Or something more substantial? This is a funny, intelligent, and unforgettable book.
Who will like this book: Anyone. Everyone. If you are looking for a book that will make you laugh almost as much as it makes you think – this is what you’ve been waiting for.
