Paper Towns is a book about Quentin Jacobson who is in love with his neighbor, Margo Roth Speigelman. As kids they both found a dead body together in the park by their house, and drifted apart as they got older. Q was a nerdy guy who hung out with the band geeks and Margo was a beautiful, popular girl who loved causing trouble. Margo runs away a lot and always leaves clues to where she will be going. Before she leaves, she had Q drive her around for her to get her revenge before she leaves. Her boyfriend, Jace, is sleeping with her best friend, so she vandalizes their homes. She caused absolute chaos by leaving dead fish for them to find with notes that have sayings of, "our friendship sleeps with the fish," and others that have the same pun to them. She leaves a red spray painted
"M" of where she was. That night they broke into Sea World and got kicked out. The next day Q was waiting to see Margo at school, and she wasn't there. Or the day after, and so on. Margo ran away, once again. But the mysterious question is who is the real Margo Roth Speigelman.
