I feel like I made friends with the characters

by AnchorageSchools (WorldCat user published 2009-04-17) Very Good Permalink

I've never read anything by John Green before Paper Towns, but I certainly will again. He managed to convey the angst and fear of teenagers, and still add a good amount of humor. Overall, the book was realistic and I feel like I made friends with the characters.
