Synopsis: 
Quentin Jacobsen has spent a lifetime loving the magnificently adventurous Margo Roth Spiegelman from afar. So when she cracks open a window and climbs 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 the girl he thought he knew...
Rating: 5/5

My Review:

As usual, John Green captivates me with this one. What I love about John Green books is he creates characters that you fall in love with, and characters that you think couldn't possibly exist but they make you wonder if maybe they..somewhere in the world. I loved all the characters in this universe. I really enjoyed the story and how it was sectioned off into three parts, each part servicing the story immensely.

You take the ride with Quentin Jacobsen, and follow the longest night of his life with Margo Roth Spiegelman, and what he goes through when she goes missing. As he begins his search for her, you the reader ask the same questions he does, mainly whether or not when he finds her, if she would be dead or alive. Maybe it's me, but I went back and fourth throughout the book about what Margo's fate would be.

I really enjoyed it. I'm now counting down the days until the movies comes out. John Green is an amazing writer, one of my favourites! I'm now in such a John Green reading zone, that I'm pre-warning you know, the next two books on my list are his books. One I haven't read yet, the other I want to re-read as it's been a while since I first read it. So look for that coming up!

What did you think of Paper Towns? Are you a big John Green fan?

Thanks for reading!!
