Summery: Quentin grew up next door to the perfectly awesome Margo Roth Speigelman. They have adventures as kids and then eventually grow farther and farther apart as they grow older. By the time they're in High School, Margo has a brilliantly cultivated bada$$ image, and Quentin is a certified band geek. But one night, Margo pulls Quentin back into her life- right before she disappears. Quentin has to understand Margo before he can find her.
Response: Totally loved it. Although the plot may sound a bit stale, it's gripping and unpredictable. The characters are very well done- not at all the typical HS romance. I got a side cramp from laughing while reading it, but it also has some deeper themes woven into it as well. This is one book I had to buy.
Word of Caution: Language, sexual references, crude humor.
