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.

    Story
    "Real, fun, touching."

    It's amazing how John Green consistently captures exactly how many teens typically act these days without appearing as though he's trying too hard. Quite a bit of swearing, sexual reference, and, surprisingly, the ability of even the average (or, in the book's case, above average) teenager to be deep and intelligent as many, many adults are not. John creates a thing of beauty here. You'll feel as if you're right beside Q, Radar and Ben as they play Resurrection, and be just as pissed off as the many characters that face breakups, betrayals, and other imperfections that stud many people our age. Wonderful character development, relatable experiences, and many amazing lessons to be learned and considered for the truth that lies within each one. 10/10.

    "A lightweight story but performed very well!"

    I guess I expected a little more substance, based on the Fault in our Stars. It's a good story just not very substantial. Starts out with a great premise and mystery but just does not quite deliver. I enjoyed the narrator's performance quite a bit, and will probably still go see the movie when it comes out in a few weeks. Hopefully they will come up with a better ending :-).

    Story
    "Paper Cuts Can Be Painful"

    What do you remember from your last year of high school?

    Quentin, or Q, as he's called, tells the story of a life long neighbor that turns his steady predictable world upside down during his last year of high school when she disappears the night after breaking and entering with him to payback those who've wronged her.

    Filled with the random wisdom of youth and the angst of those formative years, we follow the clues as secrets are revealed and destinations are discovered.

    With a distinctive sound for at least six core characters, the narrator adds flesh to the skeleton of those that populate the plot. I could close my eyes and see their faces and expressions as he fluidity slid from one speaker to the next. A well rounded, lively sounding audible jewel for sure!

    As with other Green books, readers are treated to a certain time, a certain place and a certain hope that propels the young and perplexes the rest. Way to break through the mystique, conquer the timely topic of running away and shine light on a generation that isn't usually expected to glow.

    Read this book if you can!
