Paper towns was written in 1st person. We know that because on page 25, it says "I swiveled around when I heard the window open." Another spot where you can tell it is 1st person is on page 158. It says, "The next morning at school, I found Ben standing beside the band door talking to Lacey, Radar, and Angela in the shade of a tree with low-hanging branches." Also, the entire book is written in Quentin's point of view. Throughout the whole book it uses I, my, mine, she, he, we, and us.

Literary Devices

Metaphor, Page 172: when Quentin is readying a poem, it says "I guess it must be the flag of my disposition, out of hopeful green stuff woven."

Hyperbole,Page 255: when Lace is freaking out about the food they have, "You're going to make me fat."

Simile, Page 271: "and then Ben managed to spin the car in just the right way, like some kind of brilliant vehicular ballerina."
