Book Review: Paper Towns - John Green

Paper Towns
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 and discovers 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.

2/5 stars (it was OK)
I did not like Margo at all, not the idealized version that Quentin had of her or the actual version of her.  So because of that it was really hard for me to care when she disappeared.  Quentin drops his life to find her along with his friends.  Then at the end I feel like it was just wasted.
