Overview

Now a major motion picture from Twentieth Century Fox



New York Times bestseller from the award-winning author of Looking for Alaska and The Fault In Our Stars.



Quentin Jacobsen - Q to his friends - is eighteen and has always loved the edgy Margo Roth Spiegelman. As children, they'd discovered a dead body together. Now at high school, Q's nerdy while Margo is uber-cool.

One night, Q is basking in the predictable boringness of his life when Margo, dressed as a ninja, persuades him to partake in several hours of mayhem. Then she vanishes. While her family shrugs off this latest disappearance, Q follows Margo's string of elaborate clues - including a poem about death.



Q's friends Radar, Ben and Lacey help with the search, and a post turns up on a website: Margo will be in a certain location for the next 24 hours only. The race is on! After an epic drivethrough the night, they catch up with Margo, and Q learns first-hand that the way you think about a person isn't the way they actually are.
