Belle biographie

However, Margo goes missing for three days; her parents file a police report. Quentin and his friends Ben and Radar then finds a series of clues that Margo has left him, such as a picture of Woody Guthrie on Margo's bedroom window shade, Margo's highlighted copy of Walt Whitman's poem " Song of Myself ", and a written address in Quentin's bedroom doorjamb. Quentin and his friends use these clues and find an abandoned mini-mall in Christmas, Florida , that contains evidence of her recent presence.

Quentin struggles to analyze all of Margo's clues and is unsure whether it confirms her suicide or validates his hypothesis that Margo was unsatisfied with her fake life. Eventually, the clues lead Quentin to believe Margo may be hiding in or buried in one of the many abandoned subdivision projects or "pseudovisions" around Orlando. He drives to all of the pseudovisions where he feels that she may be hiding, but cannot find her.

On the day of his graduation, while getting ready, Quentin discovers Margo has been hiding in a fictional town in New York called Agloe , which was created as a copyright trap by mapmakers.

Quentin, Radar, Ben, and Lacey skip graduation and drive to New York to search for her, with a plan to drive to Agloe before noon on May In Agloe, they discover Margo is living in an old, dilapidated barn. She is shocked to see them, which angers the group, who expected her to be grateful for their presence. Margo had left those clues to assure Quentin that she is okay and she did not want to be found. Angry at her lack of gratitude, Radar, Ben, and Lacey leave the barn and spend the night at a motel.

Quentin realizes the image he had of her was as fake as the one that she had been emitting to everyone else, and becomes furious at her for wasting his time. Margo argues that Quentin saved her for egotistical reasons; he wanted to be a knight in shining armor who saved the troubled girl. Ultimately, Quentin accepts it was unfair for him to expect Margo to live up to his perfect image of her.

After their deep conversation, Margo decides to go to New York City and asks Quentin to accompany her. Quentin wants to stay with her, but understands his home life and responsibilities prevents him from doing so. Margo promises to Quentin that she will keep contact with him.

The novel is written in three parts. Each individual part is named for a specific metaphor used considerably in that section. Each individual chapter within the first two parts is labeled with a number. However, the third part of the novel is divided into smaller sections. Each section refers to the hour of the characters' road trip. Throughout the novel, the concept of paper towns is mentioned several times. As a former Orlando resident, John Green had seen and heard of many "paper towns".

His first experience with a "paper town" occurred during his junior year of college while on a road trip. In South Dakota, he and his friend came across a paper town called Holen. At the end of the novel, John Green states that the story of Agloe presented in the text is mostly true: But then people with these old Esso maps kept looking for it, and so someone built a store, making Agloe real. Paper Towns received mostly positive reviews.

Publishers Weekly said, "the title, which refers to unbuilt subdivisions and copyright trap towns that appear on maps but don't exist, unintentionally underscores the novel's weakness: It also said the novel is "another teen pleasing read". Though we only really see Margo for the first third of the book, the clues really create her character and give us the feeling she's a complex person. Finding out who Margo is through the things she left behind was a really great way to develop her character.

Rebecca Swain of Orlando Sentinel stated, " Paper Towns has convinced me that jaded adult readers need to start raiding the Teen's section at the bookstore.

Green, who grew up in Orlando and uses the city as a backdrop for the story, taps into the cadence of teenage life with sharp and funny writing, but transcends age with deeper insights. Philpot, editorial assistant of The Horn Book Guide, said, "the end breaks your heart, and yet it feels right". Robert Corwin of Arizona State University wrote, "some readers may find the author's use of language and sexual content objectionable. On June 23, , Paper Towns was removed from the summer reading list for 13 year olds at Dr John Long Middle School in Pasco County, Florida after a parent complained to a board member that she disapproved of the book's sexual content.

The National Coalition Against Censorship responded to the removal by calling for the book to be reinstated to the reading list. In a letter to the district superintendent, the organization wrote, "No sound educational rationale for removing the book has been articulated, nor is it likely that one could be". Jake Schreier directed the film. Jaz Sinclair appeared in the film as Angela, Radar's girlfriend.
