So when she one day climbs through his window and summons him on an all-night road trip of revenge he cannot help but follow. But the next day Margo doesn't come to school and a week later she is still missing. Q soon learns that there are clues in her disappearance. and they are for him. But as he gets deeper into the mystery - culminating in another awesome road trip across America - he becomes less sure of who and what he is looking for.

I liked this book, but it definitely paled in comparison to John Green’s other books. I liked the idea of the whole book, very interesting concept, but it just felt like it was missing something. I’m still a die-hard Green fan though! I’d real a novel he wrote blindfolded.

I added a star because the majority of this book takes place in Florida (orlando) and I have to support my state lol. The book itself is pretty good I really liked it when I read it
The ending is kind of disappointing though

All of John Green's books will forever have a special place in my heart and I do not think I could ever really pick a favorite. I love his writing style as it makes the characters and the situations they are living in feel so very real. His characters are perfectly imperfect and I feel like I can relate to them all. If John Green writes a book I am guaranteed to read it.

Of course I enjoyed this book seeing as I love every single John Green book. However, I didn't enjoy this one as much as TFIOS or Looking for Alaska just due to it not having as much of an impact on me. With that being said, I still liked paper towns. I love how in depth John Green goes when it comes to developing his characters' personalities. He always adds so much detail, describing everything about them and making them so lively and interesting to where you can't help but to love them or hate them. He also is very talented at creating relatable characters. I'm sure every one has felt like Margo at one point or another; craving adventure and feeling like you have to get away. This book is just as well written as all of John Green's other novels, and I 100% recommend reading it.

This was a good book. It was definitely not my favorite of his, but it was still a good read. The movie was pretty bad, so I am glad I read this first. Otherwise I would have skipped out altogether. I recommend his other stuff more.

Good book of you don't analyze it too much. I feel the plot tends to have a few holes that can make it almost confusing and seem to unrealistic to people. While it's still a good book I wouldn't say it's a must read and the movie isn't that good either

This book was amazing, but so are all of his other books! I own it and I have reread it multiple times. It is one of those books you won't be able to put down, so make sure once you start reading, that you have time to finish it! I would definitely suggest this book and this author in particular. He is amazing

I love this book because it makes me question my motives on a daily basis. It makes me wonder if I'm doing things because I really want to or if I'm doing them simply because they're in my comfort zone. Do I really want to be in the same spot forever? Or do I want to take that risk or take that trip to get things I never imagined I'd get? This is one of the reasons I love John Green so much -- it's all so human.
