Paper towns by John Green

   Quentin Jacobsen – Q to his friends – is eighteen and has always loved the beautiful and edgy Margot Roth Spiegelman.  Nine years ago they discovered a dead body together but now at their Central Florida High school. Q’s a nerd while Margot is uber-cool.

One night before graduating, Q is basking in the predictable boringness of his life when Margo persuades him to join her in some midnight mayhem and vengeance … and then vanishes.   Q follows Margo’s string of elaborate clues – including an unnerving poem about death.  Q’s friends help with the search and a post for a website turns up : Margo will be in a certain location for the next 24 hours only.  They drive through the night racing the clock.  Is Q ready for what he might find?….
