Synopsis: Quentin Jacobsen has spent a lifetime loving the magnificently adventurous Margo Roth Spiegelman from afar. So when she cracks open a window and climbs into his life—dressed like a ninja and summoning him for an ingenious campaign of revenge—he follows. After their all-nighter ends, and a new day breaks, Q arrives at school to discover that Margo, always an enigma, has now become a mystery. But Q soon learns that there are clues—and they’re for him. Urged down a disconnected path, the closer he gets, the less Q sees the girl he thought he knew…
I started reading the novel on January 2018 because I knew it was the perfect way to bring back the nostalgia of being on a Paper Towns hangover because a year ago (January 2017), I watched and fell in love with the film adaptation of this novel by John Green. The spontaneous adventures, tight friendships and soundtrack made an impression on me. I thought the movie was loyal to the book since most of the lines in the novel during the first few chapters made it to the movie adaptation but boy, was I wrong, it was absolutely, entirely different.
