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.

Took me WEEKS to read this book. I just couldn't get into it. But the very end (kind of) made up for it. I didn't enjoy much of the book until Margo was found, but I did like the life lesson that was portrayed at that point. Wouldn't recommend, but don't absolutely hate it either.

It started off good, and I was actually liking it, but the storyline just didn't hold my interest. Ended up skipping and scanning just to finish it to see how it ended. Not impressed with the ending.

This is the 3rd John Green book I've read. Although I liked the main character, Q, I didn't like the over all story. I have a hard time not skipping over parts. Like another reviewer said, not a good ending either. JMO...If you haven't read John Green books before- I DON'T recommend you start with this one.Loves The Fault of our Stars & The Abundance of Katherines ( :
