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…(Goodreads).
Disclaimer: I read this on the plane back from America and was exhausted, then I finished it at home when I was still exhausted. May or may not have read/understood everything due to exhaustion.
While reading this book I thought I would give this book five stars. I loved the mystery and friendship aspect. Road trip? Hell yes! (though I did think the road trip would be a bigger part). I liked the characters and getting to know them by each page. I liked how Q started to understand Margo the more he looked for her. I liked how the friends interacted with each other. I won’t go into too many details, as I barely knew anything going in (while I knew way too much when I started TFIOS), and I really recommend that.
What I didn’t like was the ending. It felt off and I literally turned the page almost yelling ‘THIS IS IT?’, but as stated in my disclaimer I was really, really exhausted, so I’m planning on rereading the ending and see if I feel different and hopefully I’ll be able to change my rating, as I really enjoyed and loved the book. Besides, I gave TFIOS five stars and I loved this more. The more I talk about this the more I feel like I definitely need to reread the ending now haha.
So, do I need to reread the ending? Was my exhaustion clouding me from appreciating it? Tell me!
