Paper Towns
Author: John Green
Release Date: October 2008
A nice little page turner, taking the typical boy pining for girl story and turning it into a mystery. The method for solving the mystery seemed fairly realistic, but at times that caused it to drag as Q made progress so slowly. I thought the character of Radar was the most interesting, as the two leads suffered from typical romance genre levels of self aggrandizement. Not sure if this step will translate well to the screen as so much of it is based on the inner monologue of the protagonist.
