Paper Towns by John Green

“IT IS NOT MY FAULT THAT MY PARENTS OWN THE WORLD’S LARGEST COLLECTION OF BLACK SANTAS.” -Radar

John Green has written several hit books including Paper Towns, Looking for Alaska, and The Fault in Our Stars. Green has won the Michael L. Printz Award, Edgar Allan Poe Awards, and Corine Literature Prize. In addition to hsi writing, John Green and his brother Hank run a YouTube channel named The VlogBrothers withover 2.5 million subscribers. John was also in Time magazine's list of the top 100 most influential people in the world.

Summary Paper Towns is a book about a boy name Quentin Jacobsen. One night he is shocked to find Margo Roth Speigleman, old friend and most popular girl in school, crawling through his window in the middle of the night inviting him to help excecute Margo's plans or revenge. After an entire night of adventure, Margo goes missing. Quentin decides he must find her. Margo left behind a few clues that Quentin and his friends use to aid in their search for her.

Radar is not joking when he says this. His parents own the largest collection of black santas in the world. Later in the book, the owner of the second largest black santa collection dies and they make a road trip to buy his black santas.

"You will go to the paper towns and never come back."This is what Margo Roth Speigleman has spray painted in the "minimall." The minimall is where Margo used to go several times to write in her journal. When she ran away, she left the adress for the minimall in Quentin's door hinge. He slept in the minimall on prom night because he was sure Margo would show up in the middle of the night. While this does not happen, they do find a map in the minimall that helps them in their search for Margo.

About John Green

Paper Towns Book vs. MoviePaper Towns movie and book had a few differences. In the Q and Margo don't break into SeaWorld. Also Radar does not work for Omnictionary. One of the biggest differences between the book and the movie is that in the book the car trip takes place after prom and during graduation. In the movie, they want to go home so they make it in time for prom.
