LoveReading View on Paper Towns

Award winning author John Green’s fresh-voiced novel is an utterly gripping story that gives a roller-coaster, unputdownable read. Strongly set with all the details of life in high school, at its heart is the powerful relationship between Quentin and Margo, two kids who first met at 2 years old. Quentin, or Q as he is known, tells the story of how, after being driven in different directions by their reactions to a shocking experience when they are nine, the two operate in adjacent but separate spheres at school. Q never loses his obsession for Margo and so, when she goes missing, it is no surprise that he has to follow and find her.

Paper Towns Synopsis

Paper Towns by John Green

Paper Towns Press Reviews

'Imagine a hybrid of Scooby Doo and The Catcher in the Rye and you get a little of this novel's flavour' The Financial Times

'Green's prose is astounding - from hilarious, hyperintellectual trash talk and shtick, to complex philosophising, to devastating observation and truths. He nails it - exactly how a thing feels, looks, affects - page after page' School Library Journal

'Genuine - and genuinely funny - dialogue, a satisfyingly tangled but not unbelievable mystery and delightful secondary characters' Kirkus Reviews
