‘Paper Towns’ by John Green
In ‘Paper Towns’ we meet Quentin, also known as Q, who was friends with Margo years ago, when they were kids. Now Q likes Margo, but Margo does not seem to notice him at all. While reading this book I never understood why Q likes Margo so much, since she has never done anything for him.

Excerpt from ‘Paper Towns’
Margo Roth Spiegelman, whose six-syllable name was often spoken in its entirety with a kind of quiet reverence. Margo Roth Spiegelman, whose stories of epic adventures would blow through school like a summer storm: an old guy living in a broken-down house in Hot Coffee, Mississippi, taught Margo how to play the guitar. Margo Roth Spiegelman, who spent three days traveling with the circus – they thought she had potential on the trapeze. Margo Roth Spiegelman, who drank a cup of herbal tea with the Mallionaires backstage after a concert in St. Louis while they drank whiskey. Margo Roth Spiegelman, who got into that concert by telling the bouncer she was the bassist’s girlfriend, and didn’t they recognize her, and come on guys seriously, my name is Margo Roth Spiegelman and if you go back there and ask the bassist to take one look at me, he will tell you that I either am his girlfriend or he wishes I was, and then the bouncer did so, and then the bassist said “yeah that’s my girlfriend let her in the show,” and then the bassist wanted to hook up with her and she rejected the bassist from the Mallionaires.
