Paper Towns

By John Green



Review by Austin R.


The book starts off with two kids, Margo and Quentin, riding on their bikes to the park and coming across a dead guy. About 10 years later, Margo invites Quentin to come with her on a night of revenge. After the night is over, she disappears for a month and everyone is looking for her. Eventually, Quentin finds out where she is. He gathers his friends at graduation and took a road trip to her location. She's an adult now and traveling all over the county. I enjoyed the book very much because I can relate to how Margo feels. She feels people take life for granted. My favorite part is when Quentin and his friends leave graduation. The willingness of friends to come together and workout a problem was nice. I would highly recommend this book to everyone, especially due to the fact that it gives you the opportunity to see the world through someone else's perspective. My favorite quote was "Light, the visible reminder of invisible light." It shows that there's always something deeper than what you see.
