Margo had always been the mysterious girl who Quentin loved. Their distance grew further apart as they grew up, and when Margo showed up at Quentin's house one night, he was in for a crazy night. They spend the entire night on a revenge rampage. The next day Quentin is excited to see if Margo will remain close to him like the previous night, but she doesn't show up to school. Again, like many times in the past, Margo has gone missing. Quentin discovers clues leading to her location that are meant for him. However, the only way he will find her is if he learns to see her as the girl she is, rather than the girl he thought she was.

Paper Towns is separated into three different parts, and each one has its specific purpose. I liked this layout because the three sections remained individual and unique parts. The first division set up the story. The next part had less action and was boring at parts. The last section was full of action and suspense because the plot gets extremely intense. There was humor all throughout the book that made each page an absolute joy to read. The vocabulary was perfect for the mature young adult reader, but younger children would find it inappropriate. One other compliment to the book was that there were themes and dialogue within it that made me think about life and how humans take in everything. I recommend this book to anyone wishing to read a humorous book about life.

This book contains crude humor and language.
