Paper Towns
Paper Towns by John Green is a fantastic book and a wild ride. Green takes the audience through the adventures Quentin ‘Q’ Jacobsen has with Margo Roth Spiegelman. Q is a very bright senior who is planning on attending Duke the following fall. He is fairly shy and mainly just talks to his band friends. However, he has always loved Margo from afar. One night Margo slips into Q’s room and she takes him on the craziest night of his life. The next day Margo disappears. Q is shocked but he finds clues that Margo left for him. He religiously follows the clues in search of Margo.

Green keeps the audience engaged and uses great imagery. Not to mention that this book is very funny! I recommend it highly to all readers looking for a quick read and a great book. —Luke Fallon

    Yay Paper Towns! I haven’t read it yet, but I want to now. I’ve read An Abundance of Katherines and Looking for Alaska, and liked both of those. Paper Towns is always checked out, unfortunately… I should put it on hold.

    I so need to read that book. I’m going to find it in two weeks and take it home and read it. If I can get out of the library without somebody wrenching it out of my hands…

  3. I think John Green has reached the tipping point and I just need to order more copies of his books so that people aren’t resorting to fisticuffs in the stacks. 😉

    Everyone should read Paper Towns. And everything else that John Green writes, because he’s awesome.

  5. This is the best John Green yet! I could not put this novel down and when my 14 year old son read he was blown away. This book will compel you to read it and also grab some poetry too! I am trying to get this put on our summer reading list.
