Quentin Jacobsen has spent a lifetime loving the magnificently adventurous Margo Roth Spiegelman from afar. So when she cracks open a window and climbs back into his life–dressed like a ninja and summoning him for an ingenious campaign of revenge–he follow.

After their all-nighter ends and a new day breaks. Q arrives at school to discover that Margo, always an enigma, has now become a mystery. But Q soon learns that there are clues–and they’re for him. Urged down a disconnected path, the closer he gets, the less Q sees the girl he thought he knew.

Q has always thought he knew Margo well, since they were friends during elementary school and neighbors. However, friends change and Margo was one of those indeed. When high school comes they never speak to each other until one night when Margo crawls through Q’s window, she requests him to accompany her in a payback undertaking. Denying at first, but finally convinced Q consents since Margo needs to use his car for slightly selfish reasons. Quentin opposes some of the mini revenging missions Margo wants him to carry out since he plans on going to Duke and does not want to encounter arrest that may make his college plans vanish. They together pull through a night full of mischief and vengeance.

Hoping for the best tomorrow, Q notices that Margo has disappeared after their night out. Soon finding some clues that may lead to Margo, Q becomes quite desperate to find her. He analyzes the clues left behind, examining them again and again. Finally, he figures out what the clues mean. And realizes some things he just never quite knew and comprehend. The ending starts the never-ending cycle of philosophies of everything that just happened and every other question you want to ask yourself about that occurred during Paper Towns.

How cleverly portrayed that Paper Towns induces you into deliberating thoughts of whether you truly live in a “paper town” with paper people. Forever, I’ve marveled on picking up Paper Towns off my bookshelf to read, and I finally did. Thinking how bizarre the inside synopsis of my book jacket was; the book just didn’t seem like a my kind of book. But in the end, it pretty much showed so much perceptiveness that I was dumbfounded by my oh-so-wondering thoughts fluctuating through my mind. At first, I was slightly puzzled about the overall meaning, but that just depends on your own beliefs in life. So I judge that it changes from person to person.
