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.

I downloaded this book several months ago, got halfway through and bored to death , abandoned and forgot it.
The reviews are good and the book sounds interesting so I absent mindedly tried to order only to find it in my library. Thus encouraged I started over determined to stick with it to the bitter end, sure there must be something there. I never found it.
The characters are likable but the story is boring. The first quarter is teenage angst, the middle half a prolonged and tedious treasure hunt, and the last quarter philosophy lite.
I can see it as an interesting book for high schoolers. Otherwise not so much.
The narration is competent and doesn’t call attention to itself.
There are so many possible endings to this story, yet only one that could make sense for the characters. The 3 parts are well laid out, the intriguing Margo casts a spell on you every time you know more about her and the fact that you think you know about her is best. Everything is there, yet nothing can be seen. It is because Margo keeps it all inside or because no one really understands Margo up until she talks, but will she talk? The answer makes this book great.
You think this strory is going to go somewhere ,sadly it don't . I did not find it laugh out loud like some of the reviews said.
He had perfect narration , made they story better
The ending ,I didn't like this story ,it was a credit waste
I thought the story took too long to unfold. If I had been reading instead of listening, I probably wouldn't have finished it. I can't believe high school students were so enthralled by "song of Myself " and "Leaves of Grass!" In my opinion, this story was nowhere near the same level as The Fault
in our Stars!
It was good. I liked it. I thought the story line and characters were interesting, but I kept thinking what is the purpose and why this story? and I realized that I had these questions because this is a young abult book. The ideas are immature and the characters were naive. My least favorite character was Ben. Every time I heard him say honey bunnies I wanted to kick him in the shin.
As for the narrator I felt the role was miss casted. The story is about a senior in high school not a grown man. it made the story awkward and clunky. I do feel that he is a good story teller, though. I just wish it was a different book he was reading.
