Paper Towns by John Green
If you don't already know how I feel about John Green, you obviously haven't read my reviews of Looking for Alaska or An Abundance of Katherines. There really isn't anything I can say that hasn't already been said. He is ah-mazing, and you must go out and get his books right now if you haven't already. Go! Now! And while you're at it, check out John's website and YouTube page!
Ok, back to Paper Towns. There's no denying the similarities between Green's narrarators - Miles, Colin, Quentin - they're all dorky guys in love with seemingly unattainable girls who get through it all with the help of their always hilarious, mostly supportive friends. But as far as I'm concerned, John Green can write a hundred books with the same cast of characters and it will never get old. Some things just work, and I think this does.
