This week, please welcome Lea!
Tell us a little about yourself: what is your first name, how old are you, and what is your favorite flavor of ice cream?
I'm Lea, I'm in 7th grade, and I like all ice cream.
What book did you read and why did you choose it?
I read the book Paper Towns by John Green. I chose it because I really liked The Fault in Our Stars and lots of people recommended it.
Can you describe this book in one word?
What was your favorite part of this story?
When they go look for Margo.
If you had a problem similar to the main character's problem, what would you do?
If my friend needed something, I would help however I could.
What would you say to your best friend to convince them to read this book?
I would get my friend to read this by saying that it was really funny and suspenseful. It isn't for little kids or anything.
What do you think about the book's cover?
I really like the cover. It stands out and makes you want to look closer.
Would you want to read another book about these characters? Why or why not?
No, because the characters were very common - someone unpopular and someone popular who have a bond. That is interesting but it's used a lot and is getting boring.
Can you name another book that reminds you of this one?
The Magic Tree House books remind me of this because people who care about each other get split up and try to find each other.
If you could ask the author one question about this book, what would it be?
Why did you write this and what was the idea based on?
When Margo Roth Spiegelman beckons Quentin Jacobsen in the middle of the night—dressed like a ninja and plotting an ingenious campaign of revenge—he follows her. Margo’s always planned extravagantly, and, until now, she’s always planned solo. After a lifetime of loving Margo from afar, things are finally looking up for Q . . . until day breaks and she has vanished. Always an enigma, Margo has now become a mystery. But there are clues. And they’re for Q.
Interesting insights, Lea. Honestly, I wasn't that impressed with the characters, either. If you're interested, here's a review from another teen: http://writersrumpus.com/2015/08/11/one-story-two-endings-a-review-of-paper-towns-book-and-movie/ReplyDelete
