Description from GoodReads:

   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.


   As long as we don't die, this is gonna be one hell of a story.
   I'm not going to lie, where John Green books may be popular they really aren't for me. His story for The Fault in Our Stars was fabulous, and Looking for Alaska had a very deep topic but I can never really enjoy his characters, they are all the same for me. A boy who is a "nobody" and who is pinning for a hot girl, who apparently is everything. They were never anything special about them.
Paper Towns was not for me, I didn't even enjoy it really. The adventure and clues that were the main story made no sense. I couldn't wait to be done reading it.
   I guess fans of John Green might enjoy Paper Towns, but otherwise I think you'd be better off reading something else.
