Not since Romeo and Juliet has there been memorising tale of unrequited love. Q has admired Margo Roth Spiegelman since she moved in next door. Their families aren’t at war but it’s still a love that can never be. Quentin Jacobsen is a little bit nerdy, as are his friends Radar and Ben, whereas Margo Roth Spiegelman is beautiful, popular and impulsive. And she doesn’t love Q, that gets in the way too. She acts on instinct and has crazy adventures. So after an epic night of pranks and revenge, and Margo Roth Spiegelman goes missing no one thinks anything of it.
If you want a love story, this is not it. If you want a tale of mystery, friendship and killer cows this is the book for you. That’s what I find so refreshing about John Green’s books. There is a young love and romance, put adolescent boys and girls together it’s bound to happen, but this is a coming of age story that focuses on friendships new, old and lasting. It is clever, witty and warms your heart. I would give anything to be Q, Radar and Ben’s friend.
