Quentin Jacobsen has spent a lifetime loving the magnificent Margo Roth Spiegelman from afar. So when she cracks open a window and climbs back into his life—summoning him for an ingenious campaign of revenge—he follows. When their all-nighter ends and a new day breaks, Margo has disappeared. But Q soon learns that there are clues—and they’re for him. Embarking on an exhilarating adventure to find her, the closer Q gets, the less he sees the girl he thought he knew.

#1 Bestselling author of The Fault in Our Stars John Green crafts a brilliantly funny and moving coming-of-age journey about true friendship and true love.

Publishers Weekly Review

Sep 08, 2008 – Green melds elements from his Looking for Alaska and An Abundance of Katherines— the impossibly sophisticated but unattainable girl, and a life-altering road trip—for another teen-pleasing read. Weeks before graduating from their Orlando-area high school, Quentin Jacobsen's childhood best friend, Margo, reappears in his life, specifically at his window, commanding him to take her on an all-night, score-settling spree. Quentin has loved Margo from not so afar (she lives next door), years after she ditched him for a cooler crowd. Just as suddenly, she disappears again, and the plot's considerable tension derives from Quentin's mission to find out if she's run away or committed suicide. Margo's parents, inured to her extreme behavior, wash their hands, but Quentin thinks she's left him a clue in a highlighted volume of Leaves of Grass. Q's sidekick, Radar, editor of a Wikipedia-like Web site, provides the most intelligent thinking and fuels many hilarious exchanges with Q. The title, which refers to unbuilt subdivisions and “copyright trap” towns that appear on maps but don't exist, unintentionally underscores the novel's weakness: both milquetoast Q and self-absorbed Margo are types, not fully dimensional characters. Readers who can get past that will enjoy the edgy journey and off-road thinking. Ages 12–up.

This is my absolute favorite John Green title, which isn't a title to scoff at. If you're going to read only one John Green book, I'd say this is the one you should dedicate your time to.

When I first read this book, I was broke as could be, and couldn't afford to actually buy it, so I legitimately sat in Barnes and Noble for hours on end, for two days in a row (As I stayed until closing the first) to read this book from start to finish. That's how captivating a read it was. Not only could I not put it down until closing, I made the trip out to the bookstore the next day just to finish it.

I've of course since bought my own copy of this great book, which sits on my shelf, waiting for me to inevitably read it yet again.

I don't think I can properly describe the charm and draw of this book in words. It's just something you have to experience for yourself. It's a must read, and a purchase you most certainly won't regret.
