Margo Roth Spiegelman
Margo is a very pretty girl who is very well dressed, but she wears a mask. She has brown hair and blue eyes. On the outside Margo looks fine, but actually she is very depressed. She can’t handle it anymore that’s why she has run away to a paper town (a deserted city). She is fake so she thinks she belongs there. When she and Quentin were standing on a high building she said ‘I’m a paper girl who lives in a paper city’
Quentin is a handsome boy, but not very special, he has brown short hair and he’s tall and thin. Quentin is 17 years old and his friends call him Q. Quentin is a very nice and quiet boy. He hates going out, he doesn’t drink alcohol and he loves playing games with his friends. He has loved Margo since they were 2 years old. When they were young they always played together, but now he wants more attention from her.
Marcus, Ben and Lacey
They’re all friends from Margo and Quentin. They all call Marcus Radar. In the course of the book Ben and Lacey are getting into a relationship.
The story takes place in Orlando, Florida. Most of the time in Jefferson Park. When Margo runs away from home and Q finds her they stay over in a lot of places. They’re all called ‘paper towns’.
The story plays now, in the modern time. I know this because they are using telephones and they are playing games. There are a lot of modern things in the book.
The whole story is told by Quentin.
The main thought of the story.
The main thing of the story is finding Margo. The second important thing is growing up to become an adult and everything it involves. ‘You’re giving me a car voor my birthday!? (Q) Yes, because you’re old enough, you’re becoming an adult.’ (his parents)
Title explanation. paper towns is the title of the book because that were the places where Margo hided herself. And at the beginning of the book she said: ‘I’m a paper girl who lives in a paper city. Everything looks nice, but it’s all fake’.
My favorite scene is the moment Q, Ben, Radar and Lacey found Margo in a paper town in an old building. She was shocked that they had found her because she did’t want anyone to find her. And then Q and Margo kissed. I liked this scene the most because it was very romantic.
What I liked in the book and what not.
I liked the scene I described as my favorite scene. But the book was a bit much of the same, the things happend in the book were not that special. It was a bit boring.
The ending of the book.
Q, Ben, Radar and Lacey found Margo in a paper town, in an old building. She was shocked that they found her because she did’t want anyone to find her. Q and Margo kissed. But Q had to make a choice: go on a trip with Margo, his love or get your diploma and go to college. Q chooses the second and drived home with his friends.
Who I would you like to be and why.
I don’t want to be anyone of the characters in the book. All of the characters in the book got a missing friend and I wouldn’t like it if a friend of mine gone missing.
The book is about Quentin and Margo. They are neighbours since they were two years old. Quentin has a crush on Margo but Quentin is a bit a nerd and Margo is very popular. Margo wants to take revenge on all the people who hurt her. She goes to Quentin’s room in the night and she asked him to help her. The day after that night Margo disappeared. Margo’s parents asked Quentin if he knows where Margo is. Quentin doesn’t say anything about last night. Margo’s parents told him that Margo often leaves hints when she disappeared. Quentin sees something strange in Margo’s room. When her parents left home he broke into her room and searched for more hints. After that Quentin found more hints and he discovered where Margo is, namely in Agloe. He and his friends go to Agloe. After 21 hours they found Margo, but she isn’t happy that they found her. She is changed into a depressed girl and she never hoped that they find her. Lacey, Radar and Ben went to their hotel after that because they were angry, but Quentin stays with Margo. They kissed and after that they agreed that they will meet in the future.
