Quentin Jacobsen - Q to his friends- is eighteen and has always loved the edgy Margo Roth Spiegelman. As children, they'd discovered a dead body together. Now at high school, Q's nerdy while Margo is uber-cool.

One night, Q is basking in the predictable boringness of his life when Margo, dressed as a ninja, persuades him to partake in several hours of mayhem. Then she vanishes. While her family shrugs off this latest disappearance, Q follows Margo's string of elaborate clues - including a poem about death.

Q's friends, Radar, Ben and Lacey, help with the search, and a post turns up on a website: Margo will be in a certain location for the next 24 hours only. The race is on!

After an epic drive through the night, they catch up with Margo, and Q learns first-hand that the way you think about a person isn't the way they actually are.

Untitled
Paper Towns is one of those novels that will glue you to the pages for hours on end. Pack filled with mystery, angst and humour, this book kept me on my toes throughout the novel. Quentin and his friends are truly lovable, quirky characters as they search for answers on missing person Margo Roth Spiegelman, Quentin's childhood best friend and neighbour. An exhhilerating read for teenagers. - Rachael (QBD)

Paper Towns
Everyone by now has heard of, read or seen a book or movie by John Green. Though Paper Towns takes you down a different path then the tear-jerking, sob inducing waterworks of The Fault in Our Stars. Paper Towns essential is about a boy, Quentin, with a crush on the neighbor, Margo...typical story right Wrong When Margo Roth Spiegelman runs away from home her parents aren't even slightly worried, only angry that their 'rebel' daughter has shamed them again. It is up to our heroic, and slightly nerdy, savior Quentin to piece together the clues that Margo has left to lead him to where she has gone. Why him Margo chose him in order for him to build his courage and self worth and gain a sense of adventure. For Quentin to push his boundaries and not become as boring as the men and women that are trapped in what Margo would call a paper town. Reviewed by 35ta

Paper Towns Part 3
This idea then connects to the idea of paper towns, in which we falsely believe that something is how it appears. Its like if someone is made of paper they're only two dimensional, and we only see a facade of the person we think we know. We cant actually see the individual for who he or she really is because we can only see this paper view of them. One of the messages of the book I believe is to make people understand that what we know of someone and how we view that someone is only the mere surface of understanding that entire individual.I would recommend this book to anybody who is in high school or university because I believe that it is during these times in our lives that we tend to judge people most and form assumptions about them in our minds. I believe young adults would be able to relate to this story most and is definitely worth reading. As reviewed by Alex Chiodo

Paper Towns Part 2
I feel like there is so much that people, especially teenagers, can learn from this book. I love the concept of how we tend to form preconceived ideas of people that we don't fully know in order to give ourselves a sense of understanding of that particular individual. For example, there might be that one person at school who you never really talk to but you always see as bubbly and cheerful, so you assume that these things you observe define that person entirely. But Paper Towns presents in an intriguing way the idea that even if you think you know somebody, you cant possibly believe you understand that person completely because you yourself cannot physically become that person and feel what they're feeling. There are so many great examples in the book that demonstrate this idea of creating fallacies in our mind about people we think we know. As reviewed by Alex Chiodo

Paper Towns Part 1
Paper Towns is a story about a nerdy, not-so-cool boy named Quentin who one night is dragged on an epic adventure with the eccentric Margo Roth Spiegelman. After this crazy night, Margo disappears and Quentin believes she has left him a series of clues that will help him find where she has gone. It ultimately becomes a story about friendship, identity and an epic search to find Margo. In my opinion, the ending turned out to be one of the most satisfying and moving conclusions to a story I have ever read. The start of the book was great, the middle not too bad and the end just hit home because I felt like I could relate to it so much and all the meanings that came with it. As reviewed by Alex Chiodo

Paper Towns
I really liked Q. I could really relate to him and thought he was a really well developed character. Q's friends Ben and Radar were also really likable and I really enjoyed reading them, they made me laugh out loud many times. In the beginning of the book I quite liked Margo as well, she was quirky and fun and daring but as the story unfolds it becomes clear that that version of Margo is just the IDEA of who she is not the real girl. The real Margo was annoying. Maybe you need to be a teenager to be able to appreciate her angst or whatever, but I just couldn't sympathise with her. I felt like the ending was a bit of an anti climax but that could be because I read it in the middle of the night, which is a testament to how much I enjoyed the book that I was reading it at midnight on a work night. All in all I had a good time reading it, it made me laugh and it made me think.
