Paper Towns is about Quentin Jacobsen, and Quentin is in love with the girl next-door Margo Roth Spiegelman who he used to friends with when they were little. But Margo is no regular girl next-door. Margo loves mystery. Quentin and Margo haven’t been hanging out much since they grew older, but one night Margo comes up to Quentin’s window, like she used to do when they were a lot closer. She asks Quentin to come with her because she needs him to go on a mission with her. Quentin comes with her, and they spend the entire night together on that mission. The next day, Quentin goes to school to find out that Margo isn’t there. Margo has ran away. She has done that before, and she always left some sort of clues for her parents on where to find her. But this time, the clues are for Quentin, and he is determined to find her.
