Paper Towns

Paper Towns by John Green

Quentin "Q" Jacobsen and Margo Roth Spiegelman have been neighbors since they were two. After stumbling upon a dead man in the park as kids, their friendship essentially ends and Q loves Margo from afar. That all changes one month before graduation. Margo shows up at Q's window at midnight and takes him on a "Margo Roth Spiegelman" revenge adventure. Q's boring life is turned upside down the instant Margo disappears the next morning. The police and Margo's parents chalk up her disappearance as one of her "stunts," but Quentin can't let it go, especially when he starts finding the clues Margo left.

I could not finish the book fast enough. The mystery and intrigue will grab you and you will be dying to know what happens to Margo and Quentin. Easily my favorite book of 2008.

I loved this book too. If you've never read anything by John Green, now's the time--Paper Towns is so good! (then go back and read Looking for Alaska)
