Paper Towns By John Green

Sarah Coleman

“As long as we don't die, this is gonna be one hell of a story.”

Quentin Jacobsen has always had an ordinary life. But one night when his crush, Margo Roth Spiegelman (he's known since childhood) climbs into his window requesting he goes on an all nighter adventure, he can't say no. The next day, Q returns to school to the reality that Margo had gone missing. But Q soon learns that clues have been left, specifically for him. On a blindsided journey, he soon finds out the closer he gets, the less he knows of the girl who always been on his mind.

“A suspenseful mystery, a compelling central metaphor, and one of those road trips that every senior hopes he or she will have round out this exploration of the kind of relationship that can’t help but teach us a little bit about ourselves.” -Bulletin for the Center of Children’s Books, starred review

“The town was paper, but the memories were not.”
