Papercities by John Green
Qentin (Q) and Margo Roth Speigelman have known each other their whole years. Second was the eve before Margo left; the eve she crept through Q's windows at 12:00 for a full moon of adventures, the eve of a months close that really brought him to it. With Margo gone, Q learns more about this courageous myth and the unanswered charity of his time.
I' ve tried to do Paper Town twice, once as a hard cover and once as sound. That in itself is a disadvantage, because I will never have my own picture of Q and Margo as someone other than Nat & Cara. I' m happy I chose to give the book another shot.
Because I like Looking for Alaska (LFA) & The Fault in Our Stars (TFiOS), I can find the classical John Green style here. but I think that all authors have a tendency to become like that. As it happens, John is writing teenage intellectuals with unanswered swarms, where someone like Sarah is writing his realist girl in beachfront cities and writing Stephen King scare.
and the fact that it was more than just a formula. I' ve seen many critiques in which grown-ups said they didn't like Margo and couldn't find any kindness in her. As a teenager, I think she is a great look at being a teenager, having high hopes, hormone levels, privacy and possible psychiatric disorders.
but I' m happy Green has a great edit. To know that this was his third book, and to know LFA, The Abundance of Katherines & what should come in TFiOS, I think it has a great blend of all the John Green elemen.
Boys meet girls, un-requited loves, street trips, nasty girls, teen intellectuals and big, cranky mates. The book could readily be studied in one session, if there is enough free space.
