Paper Towns by John Green
I laughed till I cried during parts of this story. Paper Towns is the story of Quentin and his search for Margo. Quentin was the good boy, doing well in school always responsible but underneath he has a crush on the wild girl next door, Margo. As children they were friends, discovering a dead body together, but as high school takes over, they’ve ended up in different groups. Then one crazy night, Margo convinces Quentin to join her in a “mission” that involves fish, depilatory, Sea World and entering but not breaking. Quentin is not the same after that. When Margo leaves suddenly, Quentin becomes obsessed with finding her and confessing his love. Involving his friends in the search of paper towns and deciphering Leaves of Grass Quentin can’t rest until he knows. Part mystery, part coming of age story and part road trip, Paper Towns was great.
