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.
Q's friends‚ Radar‚ Ben and Lacey‚ help with the search‚ and a post turns up on a website: Margo will be in a certain location for the next 24 hours only. The race is on!
After an epic drive through the night‚ they catch up with Margo‚ and Q learns first-hand that the way you think about a person isn't the way they actually are.

Comments about Paper Towns:
Not sure what to think of this one. I liked it but it didn't really deliver! I know there's a lot of great meaning behind the story but I think I was waiting for some big twist at the end to really push it over the finish line. Either way, it was a good, easy, quick read that I learnt a little from!
