Publisher's Summary

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

Printz medalist John Green returns with the brilliant wit and searing emotional honesty that have inspired a new generation of listeners.

    "Overall excellent story"

    Knowing that there is a movie coming out makes me a little disappointed in the story. I didn't leave this book with the feeling that I couldn't wait to see the movie. It drags in parts and some events seem to be "convenient" rather than realistic. Overall, though, the story was enjoyable and the ending meet my expectations.

    Story
    "Meh"

    A bit disappointing. Maybe because I myself am not a YA I didn't get it? A girl who is on the surface vapid and superficial goes from A student to hobo for basically no reason? Yes it's explained that the suicide they found changed her forever but a few things took me out of the story, basically do seniors in high school talk or act like that? It seems like it was written for middle schoolers but due to later plot twists needed to be moved back to 17/18 year olds. It was well written even if the voices didn't always hit home. Sadly I would have preferred a different ending. But I guess no one really knows you but you. A story of 5 people, 4 of which get to know each other and one who not only doesn't want to be known but seems not to care about anybody but herself. The call at the end is too little too late. Even tho they had fun their last month in high school, a time that should be fun & light was twisted into worry & stress & fear for someone none of them really knew. She came across a bit stubborn and unwilling to admit to mistakes which seems to have committed her to a hobo's life.

    "What was the point?"

    I feel like I just wasted a week of my time. I have been captivated by John Green stories twice before. So when I heard about paper towns, I was ecstatic. The story drags and never really gets to the point. I don't understand what was learned from this endeavor.

    "Reader ruins it"

    The man who reads the story essentially ruined the book for me. I honestly thoroughly enjoyed the story but struggled to listen because the portrayal of radar was borderline offensive. I don't know if I'm the only one who thinks this but the voice he did for radar reminds me of Steve Urkel if he was from Texas and 80 years old. It is unnecessary to attempt to give him this horrendous accent as it is never mentioned in the book that he has an accent, just that he is black. Therefore, to characterize him with this poorly done stereotype was just offensive, honestly.

    Story
    "Beautiful"

    I started listening to this book after a friend told me that she has a friend whom she has nicknamed qualen after the main character in this book and another book by John Green. In an attempt to understand why she had done this I began the book. Thankfully I did this because it just became my favorite book. I felt I could relate to the main character in a way u have not been able to before to any other character. If you are contemplating whether or not to read this I would recommend this book if you like most popular teen novels or if you like realistic fiction that helps you threw rough patches of life. I hope this helps you choose to or not to read this book.

    "John Green makes me laugh out loud."

    Wonderful coming of age novel. Loved all the main characters especially Radar. John Green characters are realistic. I found myself laughing out loud throughout the reading.

    "Was expecting better"

    It was a good book, but not my favorite. At times it felt slow and at times it made me feel as though pieces were missing. It was, however, a different kind of book with mystery and a drama, which I appreciate. John Green is still one of my favorite authors!
