Paper Towns by John Green

Description from Goodreads.com
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.
Printz medalist John Green returns with the brilliant wit and searing emotional honesty that have inspired a new generation of listeners.
So, after finishing this book, I found myself almost irritated. But I want to add that after thinking about it, I have to say that it's a good thing. I think that by me wanting so much more out of this book, that it shows a really great story, because it completely pulled me in. I laughed out loud on parts, I got frustrated and wanted to just tell Q to get on with his own life and forget about M. But in the end, if nothing else we see a great adventure that Q, at the end of his high school days will probably never have again. And so even though I read this book in one day (also a sign of amazing writing on behalf of John Green) It made me emotional but not in a mushy way, it made me want to scream out loud. I would get so frustrated at how selfish i thought M was and how completely one track minded she made Q. All in all this book deserves all of the love that it has been getting. Nerdfighters worldwide should be proud. It had me gripped emotionally, and whole heartedly.

  2. I like that you put all the covers on there. Like the blue-tinted one the best

    Never read anything by this author and I enjoy books that have me on an emotional roller coaster. Will pick it up shortly!
