Paper Towns By: John Green

Right away, I think of the title of this novel. What exactly does "Paper Towns" mean in this novel ? Paper towns were towns that started to develop, and never were finished. They became abandon , and incomplete. When you approached the "paper towns, grass was growing big time , and everything was stopped for further construction .

This novel takes place in Florida. The teens in the novel Ben Radar, Larry and Margo Roth Spiegelman, and Quentin attend Central Florida High School. One month before Quentin, and Margo Roth Spiegelman graduates from High School, Quentin and Margo were able to break into SeaWorld, and not be caught.
The interesting thing is that Quentin, and Margo Roth Spiegelman were next door neighbors for years. Quentin had a crush on Margo for a long time, they became close friends in their teen years. Quentin was an export at sneaking into Margot's bedroom, and visa verse.

I thought the novel had a lot of excitement, and a lot of fun to read.
