Paper Towns Paper Towns by John Green
Book 1 for 2010 YA Challenge
Book for 2010 Challenge

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

When Margo Roth Spiegelman beckons Quentin Jacobsen in the middle of the night—dressed like a ninja and plotting an ingenious campaign of revenge—he follows her. Margo’s always planned extravagantly, and, until now, she’s always planned solo. After a lifetime of loving Margo from afar, things are finally looking up for Q . . . until day breaks and she has vanished. Always an enigma, Margo has now become a mystery. But there are clues. And they’re for Q. (from the book description)

Even though I am so irritated at the ending I still have to give this book four stars for the clever writing, fun characters and laugh-out-loud wit. I really liked the three main characters who share a friendship filled with loyalty, acceptance and harmless insults.

I did feel that some of the middle dragged a bit and after all that dragging was not pleased with the ending as I already mentioned. And I could have done without the vulgar boy talk and some swearing, but all in all an inventive plot that is definitely not predictable.

Thanks for your honest review of this. I checked it out from the library but I hate when book don't how I want them too. So I may not read it.
