Quentin Jacobsen has spent a lifetime loving the magnificently adventurous Margo Roth Spiegelman from afar. So when she cracks open a window and climbs into his life—dressed like a ninja and summoning him for an ingenious campaign of revenge
—he follows. After their all-nighter ends, and a new day breaks, Q arrives at school to discover that Margo, always an enigma, has now become a mystery. But Q soon learns that there are clues—and they're for him. Urged down a disconnected path, the closer he gets, the less Q sees the girl he thought he knew...

My Thoughts
    I saw that this book was going to become a movie so I had to read it before it came out. Ok let's talk about the characters. First we have Quentin or Q which ever you prefer. He is the quintessential slightly geekish band guy with a couple of close friends. One is the constant comic relief and the other is of an ethnic background to mix it up a little. An all around solid group. Then there is Margo Roth Spiegelman, you have to say the whole thing not just Margo, who is the popular and just a bit mysterious. She has a large group of friends of all the usual popular types. Rich party a lot types. John does a great job with character development each one is believable. I have defiantly meet some margo's in my life.
    As far as the plot, it gets lost to me during the story. There are some chapters that I want it to get moving already . I understand this is a mystery type book but it doesn't give much in the action for me. The most excitement for me is when Q and Margo go on their adventure.
     Overall this book is defiantly a change from all the Fantasy ,Dystopia, and Sci-fi stories out there. If you are looking for something in the soft mystery section. This would be a great book to check out.
