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.

Good Story! Worth more than one read.


Good story. Great read. Was a bit tiring towards the middle but then got much better. Good story. Still work more than one read.



a beautifully written novel for young adults.


Inspiring from start to finish.



Could have been better


I thought this book was going to have some big ending and leave me speechless but it left me with more questions. All the little bits before the ending was great, which is what made it a quick, easy and fun read.

I liked it but it didn't really deliver


*3.5 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!
