Paper Towns

Author:  John Green

Quentin Jacobsen - Q to his friends- is eighteen and has always loved the edgy Margo Roth Spiegelman. As children, they′d discovered a dead body together. Now at high school, Q′s nerdy while Margo is uber-cool.

One night, Q is basking in the predictable boringness of his life when Margo, dressed as a ninja, persuades him to partake in several hours of mayhem. Then she vanishes. While her family shrugs off this latest disappearance, Q follows Margo′s string of elaborate clues - including a poem about death.

This book, Paper Towns, is a book that I have recomended to many people recently as John Green's adventurous style of writing is so incredible. 

Paper Towns is about a young boy (Quentin) and his neighbour who had been drifting apart after being friends years ago. But one day Margo ( Quentin's neighbour) goes missing. The clues she has left for him, takes Quentin and his friends on a long adventure across America's East coast. The unbelivable journey takes Quentin along "The Margo Line" where with every clue he gets closer to the end of the line where Margo is waiting...

I highly recomend reading this book!

this is defintely not your typical ' notebook ' love story, or two confused teenagers who don't know what they want in life. if you're someone who stays up hours wondering about your past and cannot sleep, or a wallflower in another perons eyes, then this book is a pefect escape place. take it, read it, and dream big like margo. there are some discriptive scenes so i do not reccomend this novel to 13 and under.

Paper Towns is a very good book for teens, as it relates mostly to teenagers. It's just as good as The Fault in Our Stars, totally recomend it. I love the twists and turns that Quentin experiences, it's a crazy ride from start to finish.

Paper towns is a book for teens and older. It is really good because it has many different genres like Romance, Drama, Mystery and thriller. It has some violence and many good pranks. The two main characters are Quentin and Margo. It shows great friend ship and is set with a typical school hierarchy and a typical shy guy liking a very popular girl. It is full of adventures, mystery’s and fun times.

I thought Paper Towns would be as good as The Fault In Our Stars but I was wrong. This book, was one of the worst books I have ever read. It didn't have a really good story plot. The start was intriguing, then in the middle went on far too long. Lastly the ending was alright it wasn't that good but it wasn't bad. I really didn't get the ending of the book. After I finished I was very confused. I tried re-reading it again, but still don't understand. I know that John Green is an amazing author, but this one was one of his worst. I haven't watched the movie yet, and I don't think I want to.

I love this book so much. I watched the trailer to the movie ten million times but the book is way better! I was so jealous when my friend was reading it. I so badly wanted a copy. Once I got it I couldn't put it down. The ending is a bit sad but not as sad as " the fault in our stars". I would force you to read this book it is AMAZING!!! 

its a mystery with a love twist. I love mysteries and romances so I fell in love with this book. I know you will too as soon as you read the first page. It's amazingly written. John Green is by far one of the best authors. you have to go right now and purchase this book. You will adore it as much as I do!!!
