From the publisher:
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 into his life—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 of the girl he thought he knew.

I listened to this book and the narrator was fantastic. There's something about hearing John Green's writing that works for me. His dialogue--the witty repartee and banter is quick. There was one section toward the end that seemed a bit too existential, but that is my only complaint. I loved the cultural references and the use of Walt Whitman's poetry--which seemed familiar to me, because I spend so much time with teenagers.

There are compelling characters, authentic parents, and awesome, if somewhat unrealistic, adventures. The movie is going to be released soon, and I hope they did justice to this book.
