Selected by Indie Booksellers for the Winter 2009 Kids' List
“Quentin has loved Margo since they were both nine years old. Now it's the spring of their senior year, and after a night of pranks Margo disappears, leaving a solitary clue for Quentin. Both poignant and hysterical, this book is a delightful celebration of smart guys.”
-- Cathy Berner, Blue Willow Bookshop, Houston, TX


Description

From the #1 bestselling author of The Fault in Our Stars

Winner of the Edgar Award for Best Young Adult Mystery
New York Times bestseller
USA Today bestseller
Publishers Weekly bestseller
  Quentin Jacobsen has spent a lifetime loving the magnificently adventurous Margo Roth Spiegelman from afar. So when she cracks open a window and climbs back in the middle of the night—dressed like a ninja and summoning him for an ingenious campaign of revenge—he follows.

After their all-nighter ends, and a new day breaks, Q arrives at school to discover that Margo, always an enigma, has now become a mystery. But Q soon learns that there are clues--and they’re for him. Urged down a disconnected path, the closer he gets, the less Q sees the girl he thought he knew.

Bestselling author and Printz Medalist John Green's brilliant wit and searing emotional honesty have inspired a new generation of readers.

“Laugh-out-loud humor and heartfelt poignancy.” –Kliatt, starred review
