Who is the real Margo?

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...

Mona | 2 comments I have read The Fault in Our Stars by John Green last year .. and it is one of my favorite. I also read Let It Snow by John Green but I didn't like it so much or I only liked one of the three stories and it wasn't the one by John Green .....


Sarah Elizabeth (bookworm_sarah) | 83324 comments Mod
I read the fault in our stars earlier in the year, and I wasn't overly impressed! hopefully this is better ☺


Danielle ♥ (daniellewaltz) | 2219 comments I'd like to participate in this group read! I just joined this group so this will be my first read with you all. I also plan to participate in the Bookish Blocks May Challenge! I will use this book to fulfill the "GBR/BR&R" block! Looking forward to it!

I read The Fault in Our Stars last year, it was okay but I didn't get into it until about halfway through the book, but, topics centering around terminal illnesses are not my thing. John Green is an excellent writer, though, so I have high hopes for this one!


Sarah Elizabeth (bookworm_sarah) | 83324 comments Mod
I hope it's better than the fault in our stars too ☺


Beini (beiniwu94) Looking for Alaska by John Green was probably one of the first YA novel I read around 4 years ago, and I really enjoyed it! I read The Fault in Our Stars by John Green and it did not impress me as much, in fact, I think I may have liked the movie better haha. I heard that this book is similar to TFIOS, but hopefully it isn't too similar!


Sarah Elizabeth (bookworm_sarah) | 83324 comments Mod
I hope it isn't too similar either!

Sibil | 1613 comments I'm in (and just in time!). This book was in my TBR for so long! :)
I have read An Abundance of Katherines and I loved it, but I have read also Let It Snow by John Green and Zombicorns (Zombicorns, #1) by John Green , but I didn't love them (I didn't dislike them, either, but the were not so good).


Sarah Elizabeth (bookworm_sarah) | 83324 comments Mod
Welcome Sibil! Hopefully you'll like this one ☺


Sibil | 1613 comments Thank you! I hope it to! :)

part 2 chapter 13 (view spoiler)


Irena BookDustMagic | 1420 comments I started it this morning. I haven't got that far though, on chapter 3.
I just want to say, and this is not a spoiler, I really hope we have more then one miracle in our life, because I really want go win a lotty one day, and since I already survived that car accident I wasn't supposed to, I know that was my miracle right there!


Sarah Elizabeth (bookworm_sarah) | 83324 comments Mod
I'm not sure how he thinks living mext door to a hot girl is a miracle.


message 38: by Cheyenne (last edited May 01, 2015 06:02AM) (new) - rated it 5 stars

Cheyenne | 2367 comments Well all the videos I watch of John Green explaining Paper Towns and the concept of the feelings of being a teenager and first love as well as friendship relationships. I don't think he meant living next door to a hot girl was a miracle more of living to the person who he loved and had the hugest crush on was a miracle. This whole book has tons of deeper meanings which is different than some of the other books I read. I do admit living to a hot person isn't a miracle.


Sarah Elizabeth (bookworm_sarah) | 83324 comments Mod
although it's better than living next to someone who doesn't wash and plays loud music ;)

True I don't have that problem since I live in the middle of no where


Irena BookDustMagic | 1420 comments I wish I was living in the middle of nowhere. I live next to disrespectful neighbors. They literally had a party the day my grandma died and all the neighbors came to our house to show respect, except those. and that is just one example.


Sarah Elizabeth (bookworm_sarah) | 83324 comments Mod
I'm not a big fan of neighbours either. although our new ones are better than our old ones.

Jade | 345 comments Only started reading a few hours ago however I'm on chapter 5 and I'm enjoying the book.

'Margo's 11 things to do' plan is quite creative and interesting so far.
