Overall: 4.4

Comments: John Green is fantastic when it comes to writing great characters and interesting plot. This book is about the disappearance of the undisputed ‘queen’ of Quentin’s high school-his next-door neighbor, Margo. She vanishes after rcruiting him for a hilarious night of revenge on her ex-boyfriend-and then she disappears. He refuses to think that this is the end of Margo, follows her clues, and finds her again, all the while tying to the best of his ability to avoid the mention of prom and survive his last few months of high school. It’s a really great book!
