Cover of "Paper Towns"
Paper Towns by John Green

“And I wanted to tell her that the pleasure for me wasn’t planning or doing or leaving; the pleasure was in seeing our strings cross and separate and then come back together.”

Finished Paper Towns in less than a day thinking it would rid me of the eerie feeling that clung to me after a long struggle to end The Catcher in the Rye. What it did to me, however, was leave me in a kind of depression I once felt years before, when all I wanted to do was escape.

There are a lot of reasons one might hate Margo– I knew I had more than a million, to be honest. But after a few attempts at fully digesting what just hit me, I realized that everything was because of Q after all.

No one told you to run after her, Q– love shouldn’t always be this painful.

This, I learned the hard way.
