Imagine a hybrid of Scooby Doo and The Catcher in the Rye and you get a little of this novel's flavour (The Financial Times)
Green's prose is astounding - from hilarious, hyperintellectual trash talk and shtick, to complex philosophizing, to devastating observation and truths. He nails it - exactly how a thing feels, looks, affects - page after page (School Library Journal)
Genuine - and genuinely funny - dialogue, a satisfyingly tangled but not unbelievable mystery and delightful secondary characters (Kirkus Reviews)
A boy, a girl, some clues and a brilliant road trip across America.

Quentin (Q) has been infatuated with his next-door neighbour, Margo, since they were both 9 years old and were involved in a traumatic experience. But to Q, Margo is completely unobtainable; she's magical, courageous, wild and unique where as he's a bit of a geek, self conscious and timid. I wasn't expecting to like and relate to Q as much as I did, not being a teenage male myself. But I'm sure we've all known someone like Margo, who we see as so perfect but completely out of our league, and idolise so much they become almost godlike in our imaginations. He also has all the qualities required so that anyone, of any age can identify with him, with flaws as human as they come. He's a bit dorky, easily embarrassed, obsessive and impatient. He's also sensitive, thoughtful and loyal. Above all though, he's just a really nice kid and someone you would want to be friends with.
The other characters in the book are equally well rounded. Q's friends, Radar and Ben each have their own quirks, which make them completely believable. The dynamics and dialogue between the three miss-fit boys is superb, ranging from hysterically funny, cringe-worthy, contemplative and touching. I really liked seeing such close friendship from a male perspective, something I have rarely come across.Read more ›
I would recommend anyone, young or old, to read this book. What it will give you is an experience that not only will you enjoy but that maybe you might get something out of. I live in the UK, and I had to buy this book on Amazon because it is not published here; apparently, the UK are not receptive to YA novels of this nature. All I can say is, it's a shocking indictment on us, and not the book.
High school pupils will find this book relevant and will reflect on the topic of "change" - the leaving.
Parents of teens will gain a refreshed understanding of what goes on in their strangers' mind.
Older people will either find this book incredibly boring or incredibly cute and smile not only at the characters, but at some wonderful messages that John Green leaves for us throughout the book.
