Publisher's Summary

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 listeners.

Another win from John Green

If you could sum up Paper Towns in three words, what would they be?

mysterious, hilarious, teenagers


What other book might you compare Paper Towns to and why?

This story has a lot of common elements with Looking for Alaska, another John Green book. Both have strong, confident, wild females that smart, nerdy boys pine for.


Which character – as performed by Dan John Miller – was your favorite?

A tie between Radar and Ben, the trusty sidekicks. There were very distinct and perfect voices for each character. He really brought them to life.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Absolutely! The plot pace was just right and the mystery was compelling. Plus, I just loved listening to the dialogue between the characters. More than once I tried to stifle bursts of laughter.


Any additional comments?

I'm a big fan of John Green. All his books manage to tell a serious, compelling story while injecting great and unexpected humor. The reader was fantastic, giving identifiable personalities to each of the characters, and never missed a beat on the humor. This book was well worth the listen, and if you like it, pick up Green's other books as well.

I picked you

I really enjoyed this book, maybe not as much as Looking for Alaska, but it still had the desired impact. John Green creates a world that you feel like you are a part of and makes you analyze all the triumphs and mistakes you experienced while there. This story is a great read for almost any age. I definitely recommend picking it up. Great narration by the way.
