Review of Paper Towns by John Green

Rating - 4
Young Adult

Quentin Jacobsen has spent a lifetime loving the magnificently adventurous Margo Roth Spiegelman from afar. So when she cracks open a window and climbs back into his life--dressed like a ninja and summoning him for an ingenious campaign of revenge--he follows.
After their all-nighter ends and a new day breaks, Q arrives at school to discover that Margo, always an enigma, has now become a mystery. But Q soon learns that there are clues--and they're for him. Urged down a disconnected path, the closer he gets, the less Q sees of the girl he thought he knew. (Amazon desc.)
Green is a master at exploring the character of teens as they search for adulthood. "Q" is a great character and his friendship with Radar and Ben is spot on. I found myself laughing out loud in several places. This is a very satisfying, enjoyable look into the lives of teenagers on the brink of adulthood.
