Theme
Sometimes to truly under stand someone you need to let them go.
Q thought he understood who Margo was but these were just assumptions he made based on the way she appeared. He didn't know the REAL Margo Spiegelman, he knew the image she precieved to be. When Margo runs away Q waits it out a few weeks, becuase this is normal when it comes to her. But after a while when she doesn't come back Q finds himself on a journey looking for Margo and discovering who she truly is. Not the Fictional character in his mind he called Margo.

Let her go
by Passenger
I chose this as my song because ita about how you dont truly appreciate or know anything until you don't have it. Q never really knew Margo but he thought he knew everything there was to her. When she runs away and he looks for her he discovers clues that tell the story behind this popular girl named Margo. He discovers that he didn't know Margo until she was gone, and he didn't have her in his life.
