I recently read Paper Towns by John Green which is set to come out in theaters this July.
I chose this book after watching and reading The Fault In Our Stars and enjoying them both.
The story is about a missing girl (Margo Roth Spiegelman) and her friends following clues to try and figure out where she went.
She felt empty. She felt the unscaleable wall surrounding her.
While her life had seemed perfect, she shows the flaws in those around her as she pranks them on her last night in town with her childhood friend, and neighbor, Q (Quentin Jacobsen).
It is so hard to leave— until you leave. And then it is the easiest goddamned thing in the world.
From posters hanging on window shades to strange pin marks in the walls the clues are strange, and sometimes as deep as Walt Whitman poems, but Q won’t give up on finding love and a girlfriend.
““Forever is composed of nows,” she says. I have nothing to say to that; I am just chewing through it when Margo says, “Emily Dickinson. Like I said, I’m doing a lot of reading.”
And quite possibly the best quote from the book is:
I’m not saying that everything is survivable. Just that everything except the last thing is.
This book is a 9 out of 10.
