Another awesome book from John Green

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 follows.
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 of the girl he thought he knew.
Printz medalist John Green returns with the brilliant wit and searing emotional honesty that have inspired a new generation of readers.
Enigmatic Margo is dramatically captured in a unique dual-cover treatment.

My Review:   Well besides being heavily influenced by the epicness that is John Green, this book was fantastic.  The humor was great, and I found all the character (yes even the secondary ones) quite awesome.  Q is sweet and a loveable little dorky (this is said in the most affectionate way possible)  and you can't help but love him.  Margo is brilliant beyond belief.  Putting catfish in peoples cars while writing "your friendship with MS now sleeps with the fishes" is just plain hysterical.    If I ever get pissed off at someone I am stealing that idea.  The whole notion of Paper Towns and Paper People is so accurate and insightful I'm almost convinced that Green needs to become  a philosopher.  Though the book is laugh out loud hilarious, it also has a deeper message.  I know the whole "moral lesson" is overrated but Green does it in a way that makes you actually reflect on your own life and really think things through.  It's truly a great read.  Can't wait for more by the brilliant and wonderful Green!!!
