After a night of pranks, vandalism and break ins, Margo has disappeared. Quentin is desperate to find her and with a few of his friends and a series of clues, he embarks on a journey that he will never forget.
What I Thought of Paper Towns
I usually am not a big fan of romance novels because I feel like they are repetitive and dull. However, I decided to keep an open-mind and take a chance on this book, and I’m glad I did. This is not your classic sappy romance novel; Paper Towns is a compelling read with its smart characters and fast-paced plot. But what really separates Paper Towns from other YA fiction is its message. This book leads you on a wild adventure but ends with a thoughtful finish, providing needed closure while also making you think.
The most memorable moment was, like many books are, at the end. John Green sets readers up for a dramatic ending but instead he ends the novel with a surprising plot-twist.
