Transcript of Paper Towns
This book is in first person. It is told and seen through Quinton, it has his thoughts of Margo and how he feels about her.
'I liked being bored. I didn't want to, but I did. And so May fifth could have been any day-until just before midnight, when Margo Roth Spiegelman slid open my screenless bedroom window for the first time since telling me to close it nine years before.'- Quinton pg. 24 John Green Paper Towns.

"Interesting capitalization," I said.'- Quinton pg. 32 John Green Paper Towns,
' Margo always loved mysteries. And in everything that came after-ward, I could never stop thinking that maybe she loved mysteries so much that she became one.'- Quinton pg. 8 John Green Paper Towns
Margo is mysterious and thinks outside of the box. That is why she is a paper girl, in a paper world. She doesn't like where she is and runs away to find something true. The place where people will see her for her. Everyone has a different Margo, just none of them have the right one.
'" It's more impressive," I said out loud. "From a distance, I mean. You can't see the wear on things you know? You can't see the rust or the weeds or the paint cracking. You see the place as someone once imagined it."
"Everything's uglier close up," she said.'- Quinton and Margo pg. 57 John Green Paper Towns.
'"Ninjas don't splash other ninjas," Margo complained.
"The true ninja doesn't make a splash at all."'- Quinton and Margo pg. 74 Paper Towns.
Quentin is a quiet, intelligent and obsessed (with Margo). He always thought that Margo was put into his life for a reason. And when she disappears he starts to look for her immediately. But the clues that she left behind were misinterpreted by Q. He went on a wild goose chase for something that was never meant for him to have.
We can connect this book to the Fault In Our Stars because Quentin and Hazel both lose someone they love. Augustus dies and once Margo doesn't want to come back Quentin knows he won't be able to keep her.
We can connect this book to when you lose someone. Quentin did not lose Margo but he knew that he won't be able to see her every day because she won't come back, it still felt like he lost her.
We can connect this book to when we feel like we have to know something. Quentin couldn't stand not knowing where Margo was and went out to find her. He followed the bread crumb trail and every clue he found led him to Margo.
'"Well, I don't remember exactly what I called her, but it was something along the lines of 'sniveling, repulsive, idiotic, backneridden, snaggletoothed, fat-***** ***** with the worst hair in Centeral Flordia-and that's saying something.'"'-Margo pg 46 John Green Paper Towns.
This book is shown through Quentin's perspective, so first person. We get to see what Quentin thinks and perceives of a situation. We get to see his thoughts about Margo and where he thinks she would be. We wish this story was shown through multiple perspectives because then we can see what they all think of Margo's disappearance.
"Have you ever seen a pencil?" I asked him, and Ben nodded. "Well, have you ever seen the little shavings of rubber left on the paper after you erase something?" More nodding. "I'd say three shavings long and one shaving wide," I said.

Prezi. N.p., n.d. Web. 3 June 2015. <https://prezi.com/ewbdmeywavt9/edit/#0>
We rate this book 4/5 because we think
the book was well written and kept us interested. Some parts though were boring, slow paced and hard to understand. Overall, the book had a great story line and was interesting.
The moral/theme in Paper Towns is chasing after what you want in life, no matter what is left behind. Margo shows this theme because she doesn’t care if she has to leave everything behind, she knows that she doesn’t want to be stuck in Orlando for the rest of her life because she hates it there. She knew she had to just leave everything all at once of she might not be able to do it.

Radar is a nerdy but caring guy. He will
tell you what he thinks when he needs to but gives great advice. (even if its from Omnictionary) He helps Quentin find Margo, even if it means skipping grad and not celebrating with his girlfriend, Angela.
In this book we saw a boy who was in love with a girl. Because he loved her, he helps her one night when she comes through his bedroom window and asks for help. Quinton went with Margo to complete a quest, or 'famous last words' before her disappearance the next day. But she wasn't kidnapped or anything. Margo left small clues that would lead Quinton and his friends to her whereabouts. You will go to the paper towns and never look back. They learned about themselves and the real Margo on their journey. But what if she was never really wanting found.
"You can't divorce Margo the person
from Margo the body. You cant see one without seeing the other. You looked Margo's eyes and you saw both their blueness and their Margo-ness. In the end, you could not say Margo Roth Spiegelman was fat, or that she was skinny, any more than you can say that the Eiffel Tower is or is not lonely. Margo's beauty was a kind of sealed vessel of perfection-uncracked and uncrackable."
Quentin pg. 50 Paper Towns John Green
"It must be said that Lacey Pemberton was very beautiful. She was not the kind of girl who could make you forget about Margo Roth Spiegelman, but she was the kind of girl who could make you forget about a lot of things."
Quentin pg. 183 Paper Towns John Green
"Of course he is. You know your problem, Quentin? You keep expecting people not to be themselves. I mean, I could hate you for being massively unpunctual and for never being interested in anything other than Margo Roth Spiegelman, and for, like, never asking me about how it's going with my girlfriend-but I don't give a shit, man, because you're you. My parents have a shit ton of black Santa's, but that's okay. They're them, I'm too obsessed with a reference Web site to answer my phone sometimes when my friends call, or my girlfriend. That's okay, too. That's me. You like me anyway. And I like you. You're funny, and you're smart, and you may show up late, but you always show up eventually."
So we think that this book is a little pg 13 because there are some parts in this book that are very inappropriate for a younger reader. And sometimes you can get a little lost in the book, and we believe a younger reader will have a hard time staying along. If you are not okay with fowl language than this book is not for you. As well if you aren't into sad endings then please don't read this book. It shows what real life is.
The oh so beautiful Lacey is the out of his league girlfriend of Ben. Lacey is a very forgiving person, so when Margo back stabbed her she let it go, and when Margo ran away, she was quick to help the search. Lacey has a personality as good her looks.
"It's gas! It's gonna blow!" Ben shouts. He throws open the passenger door and takes off, running in panic. He hurdles a split-rail fence and tears across a hay feild. I get out as well, but not in quite the same hurry. Radar is outside, too, and as Ben Hauls ass, Radar is laughing. "It's the beer," he says."
Ben, Radar and Quentin pg.270 Paper Towns John Green
Ben is a quirky and upbeat guy and he loves his hunnybunnies. Even though he is known for being Bloody Ben, he still is confident to get a date. When Lacey agrees to go with him to prom Ben's confidence grows even more. He helps Quentin find Margo and on the way saves everyone's lives, by steering the car away from hitting a cow.
“I had not cried for Margo until then, but now finally I did, pounding against the ground and shouting because there was no on to hear: I missed her I missed her I missed her I miss her.”
