Quentin Jacobson is 17 years old. He lives in Orlando, Florida in a subdivision called Jefferson Park. Quentin is a typical teenager, he is lazy, sensitive and loyal. The most exciting thing about him is that he's in love with his neighbour and childhood friend, Margo Roth Spiegelman. Margo is a firecracker. She is out-going, popular and beautiful. But she rarely even acknowledges Quentin's existence. Until one strange night. At 12am Quentin heard a knock on his window. It was Margo. She wanted Quentin to drive her around to help her complete a list of revengeful tasks. And so he did. The next morning when Quentin awoke, he glanced out the window to find out that Margo's car was gone. When he arrived at school, she was gone. She had disappeared, and as Quentin would soon find out, she had left him a trail of clues for him to find her.

This book is called Paper Towns. John Green is the author, and it is a realistic fiction. Paper Towns was published in 2008.

The two main characters are Quentin and Margo. Quentin is loyal, sensitive, trustworthy and lazy. He has brown hair and eyes. Margo is endlessly exciting, she is a firecracker, the popular girl at school, and very out-going.

If the girl you loved since childhood came knocking on your window in the middle of the night, how would you react? What if she requested your assistance to escort her around and help complete a list of revengeful tasks? What would you do, if the next day she disappeared?

Paper Towns was a very good book. I enjoyed the author's style of writing very much. His word choice is exceptional, and he really let's the characters come alive through the words. But I do think that the ending could use some revision. The book ends too quickly for my liking.

I would rate Paper Towns 4 stars. I really enjoyed the majority of the book but I was let down by the ending.

"Forever is composed of nows."
