Paper Towns

Have you read Paper Towns by John Green? It was just made into a movie! The movie was a pretty accurate interpretation of the book, and in parts it was very funny, and sometimes a little sad. The friendship among the characters was really fun to see, especially when they took their car ride from Florida to New York. I especially liked the way the “popular” girl ended up with the “nerdy” guy. If you can read the book and see the movie, you can decide which was better! If you only have time for one, read the book. It was amazing.paper towns
