Paper towns was one of the best books I've ever read and the first book by John Green that I read. It was amazing and funny and made me read his other two books, (i.e. looking for alaska, an abundance of kathrines).

"Staff Pick" by ,

Paper Towns starts with a dead man that two children find in the park and picks up speed from there. When his childhood best friend, Margo, goes AWOL, Quentin must put together some cryptic clues to find her. John Green has impressed me again with his natural wit and engaging story line.

"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "Green melds elements from his Looking for Alaska and An Abundance of Katherines — the impossibly sophisticated but unattainable girl, and a life-altering road trip — for another teen-pleasing read. Weeks before graduating from their Orlando-area high school, Quentin Jacobsen's childhood best friend, Margo, reappears in his life, specifically at his window, commanding him to take her on an all-night, score-settling spree. Quentin has loved Margo from not so afar (she lives next door), years after she ditched him for a cooler crowd. Just as suddenly, she disappears again, and the plot's considerable tension derives from Quentin's mission to find out if she's run away or committed suicide. Margo's parents, inured to her extreme behavior, wash their hands, but Quentin thinks she's left him a clue in a highlighted volume of Leaves of Grass. Q's sidekick, Radar, editor of a Wikipedia-like Web site, provides the most intelligent thinking and fuels many hilarious exchanges with Q. The title, which refers to unbuilt subdivisions and "copyright trap" towns that appear on maps but don't exist, unintentionally underscores the novel's weakness: both milquetoast Q and self-absorbed Margo are types, not fully dimensional characters. Readers who can get past that will enjoy the edgy journey and off-road thinking. Ages 12-up." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
"Review" by , "[Green is] clever and wonderfully witty...he's a superb stylist, with a voice perfectly matched to his amusing, illuminating material. (Starred review)"
"Review" by , "[D]eliciously intelligent dialogue and plenty of mind-twisting insights....a powerfully great read."
"Review" by , "Green knows what he does best and delivers once again with this satisfying, crowd-pleasing look at a complex, smart boy and the way he loves."
"Synopsis" by , With his trademark brilliant wit and heart-stopping emotional honesty, the Printz Medal-winning author of Looking for Alaska returns with a novel about a teenage girl who has mysteriously vanished, and the boy who looks for her by following the clues she has left behind just for him.
"Synopsis" by ,
Printz Award-winning author Meg Rosoff's latest novel is a gorgeous and unforgettable page-turner about the relationship between parents and children, love and loss.

Mila has an exceptional talent for reading a room—sensing hidden facts and unspoken emotions from clues that others overlook. So when her fathers best friend, Matthew, goes missing from his upstate New York home, Mila and her beloved father travel from London to find him. She collects information about Matthew from his belongings, from his wife and baby, from the dog he left behind and from the ghosts of his past—slowly piecing together the story everyone else has missed. But just when shes closest to solving the mystery, a shocking betrayal calls into question her trust in the one person she thought she could read best.

And theyre for Q.
