Paper Towns

Author: John Green

Genre: YA/Fiction

Series: None

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.

Summary: It’s rare I’m harsh on a book. It honestly is. But I’m going to be pretty harsh.

This book was awful.

Now, the story idea was fantastic. It could have been amazing. But there was an abundance of language, crudeness, and worldliness around teens that made a book that could have been good – awful.

So my advice is?

Don’t read it.

  1. Eeesh, yeah… I had to read “Will Grayson, Will Grayson” by John Green and another author for a creative writing class, and it was terrible. So much needless language / crudeness.
