Paper Towns - John Green I'd say 3 stars most of the way, and then the fourth star snuck up on me, nestled in and laid its head on my shoulder. I'd heard so many people rave about John Green, and I did love Will Grayson, Will Grayson. So when this book seemed no more than a fun, easy ya read, I was a bit disappointed. But eventually, I loved it. I think if I had read it as an actual young adult, it could have even been life-changing. As a 35 year old though, it was more of a revisiting of ideas than a discovery of new ones. Recommend this to the teens in your life, for sure.
