The paper girl in her paper towns


By: Carolyn Simon

Paper towns by John Green.

Margo Roth Spiegelman, the queen of the divine- right monarchy that is high school, is adventurous, extraordinary and mysterious. Margo Roth Spiegelman was all of these things and so much more to so many people but no one ever stopped to think that she might just be a girl with a limited amount of strings left to be broken.

Paper Towns is a captivating story where Margo takes Quentin (Q) on the adventure of his life as he tries to decode the girl that is Margo Roth Spiegelman. While reading this novel you will feel as though you’re sitting in the back seat of Q’s mom’s minivan with his band geek friends, Ben and Radar. You’ll join Q in his crazy adventure to understand the girl that everyone thought they knew.

John Green successfully makes his reader think more deeply about the metaphors we use for our world and how different people are from each other- no matter how much one might want to be someone else. Do yourself a favor and open the story about the paper people in their different paper towns and fall in love with the story of Quentin Jacobsen and the infamous Margo Roth Spiegelman.
