Lately I have been on a kick of reading Young Adult fiction even though I don't quite fit that demographic.(forty-something?) But, there are so many amazing Teen books that are great for adults too that I can't seem to stop! The YA book Paper Towns by John Green is a great read no matter your age.
Green is know for his well written award-winning young adult novels. In this book, Quentin Jacobsen is a smart, nerdy high school senior who has been in love with his neighbor, Margo Roth Speigelman for years. She is a popular, crazy, spirited rebel who he worships from afar. One night she shows up at his bedroom window dressed as a ninja and they spend the night carrying out her plan for revenge on classmates who have wronged her. Quentin is thrilled to re-kindle his friendship with Margo, but by the next day she goes missing. Quentin goes on a mission to find her and piece together where she might have gone and why. Through his journey he learns things about himself and Margo that he never knew.
This book is filled with humor, heartbreak and insight and will touch you no matter your age.
