In the process, Quentin explores the relationship with his friends including his compatibility with Margo. She is a childhood friend from whom he has drifted over nine years after they discovered the corpse of a local man, Robert Joyner Lane Lovegrove , who killed himself after his divorce. Unbeknownst to Margo, Quentin has been infatuated with her since they became neighbors.

After reaching adolescence, Margo becomes one of the popular girls, with an adventurous reputation, at Jefferson Park High School. Margo accuses Lacey of not telling her about the affair. It is revealed later that Lacey was unaware of the affair until she was pranked. The event gives Quentin hope that he finally has a chance to develop a closer relationship with Margo. He begins to learn how to assert himself and to take chances.

The next day Margo does not come to school, and after a few days, some consider her missing, others just conclude she left for an undisclosed location. After seeing a recently attached Woody Guthrie poster on her bedroom wall, Quentin realizes that Margo deliberately left clues for him as to where she would be going. Benjamin and Marcus start searching for other clues in hopes of finding Margo so that Quentin can confess his feelings to her.

Quentin bribes Margo's sister Ruthie Meg Crosbie so that they can look for the clues to Margo's whereabouts in her room.

Because of her loyalty to Margo and her revulsion towards Rebecca and Jason's promiscuity , Lacey leaves in disgust. Quentin finds Lacey in a bathroom and gets to know her, discovering that, beneath her superficial exterior, she is actually an intelligent and compassionate person, and they become friends.

After finding more clues, Quentin starts to put them together and is led with his friends to an old gift store at an abandoned strip mall. They find a map that Margo used, and discover that she has been hiding in Agloe , a paper town located in the State of New York.

Quentin and his friends, including Marcus's girlfriend Angela Jaz Sinclair , begin a two-day road trip to find Margo, hoping to be home in time for their prom after they find her. They bond on the way, as Benjamin and Lacey are going to the prom together; Marcus and Angela consummate their relationship. When they do not find Margo where they expect her to be, Quentin stays while the others return home with his car.

He finds Margo on the street and admits his affection for her, but she does not feel the same way. She ran away from home to escape her neglectful parents, in an attempt to figure out who she is. She left the clues to let Quentin know that she is safe, not to invite him to follow her. Margo remains in Agloe. Quentin books a bus ticket home and they share a farewell kiss. Before he leaves, Margo tells him that she has been in contact with Ruthie since leaving Orlando.

Returning to Orlando, Quentin enjoys the company of his friends at the prom. After graduation, he continues spending time with them throughout the summer before they all leave for college.

All the paper kids, drinking paper beer some bum bought for them at the paper convienience store All this things paper-thin and paper-frail. I had not cried for Margo until then, but now finally I did, pounding against the ground and shouting because there was no one to hear: I missed her I missed her I missed her I miss her.

Like, I will probably never get struck by lightning, or win a Nobel Prize, or become the dictator of a small nation in the Pacific Islands, or contract terminal ear cancer, or spontaneously combust.

But if you consider all the unlikely things together, at least one of them will probably happen to each of us. Es ist wie ein Riss tief in dir drin.
