Contemporary teen fiction by John Green. Quentin Jacobsen is your average geeky teenager, who has loved his next door neighbor Margo his whole life. But, Margo runs with a different crowd, the popular crowd.

Then, one night, about a month before graduation, Margo enlists Q in an adventure, like he's never had before. Then, Margo disappears. Q becomes obsessed with happened to Margo, the girl he thought he knew, but obviously didn't.

There are lots of things to like about this story. The best part is the humor. Quentin has memorable friends who help him along the way. But, I was oddly disappointed with the ending. While I understand Margo's motivations, I really didn't understand her actions or her end-goals. The book is fair.
