Paper Towns

This is a fantastic story, beautifully crafted and alarmingly real.

I cannot say enough good things about Paper Towns. It is a must on everyone’s “to read” list and my favourite novel by John Green (sorry TFIOS fans).

Quintin and Margo were friends as children. But high school happened and they went their separate ways. One night Margo knocks on Quintin’s window and takes him on an amazing night of debauchery, revenge and fun. Then Margo disappears without a trace. But she Leaves clues for Quintin to find her. The question is does she really want to be found?

American Nerd

American Nerd: The Story of My People is funny and delightful. It is a must read for nerds, dorks and dweebs everywhere. The book was disjointed at times but overall an enjoyable look at nerdom and all its wonders.

Benjamin Nugent reflects on stories of his youth and finding acceptance in his group of nerd friends. It is in these moments Nugent shines. He is charming, funny and thought provoking. Nerds of the world, this is our story told by one of our own.
