really liked it

** spoiler alert ** Every nerd guy who ever lived has a Margo--I had several. She is the girl who is unacceptably pretty, deceivingly friendly, and completely unobtainable.
In Paper Towns, the protagonist gets to spend one long prank-filled evening with his Margo shortly before she mysteriously disappears.
John Green's writing is smooth and readable, the characters are fun and vivid, and story ushers you along in its irresistible current. I gave the book four stars instead of five not because it has flaws... In fact, it has no flaws that come to mind. I gave it four stars because it is light and fun and free of substance. It is the kind of four-star book that I generally prefer to books of the five-star persuasion.
