‘Paper Towns’ Re-Read

Today is the first day of July, which means that we are just twenty-four days from the Paper Towns movie being released in theaters. Paper Towns is based on the book by John Green, and if you’re like me, you’re counting down the days until we can see the movie starring Nat Wolff as Quentin and Cara Delevingne as Margo.

The trailers for Paper Towns have it set up to be a great movie for the summer, filled with adventure, plenty of laughs, and an important underlying message about seeing people for who they really are. I’ve seen the trailers multiple times, and each time I can’t help but smile and laugh.

To be fully prepared for the movie release, we are going to be hosting a re-read of Paper Towns here on The Young Folks. I’ll be doing recap posts at the end of each specified date below, as well as a Twitter chat with giveaways!

The re-read officially starts today, July 1, 2015.

  • For July 10th, read the prologue and part one.
  • For July 17th, read part two.
  • On July 22nd, we’re having a Twitter chat at 8pm EST at @TYFOfficial
  • For July 24th, read part three.

After their all-nighter ends, and a new day breaks, Q arrives at school to discover that Margo, always an enigma, has now become a mystery. But Q soon learns that there are clues—and they’re for him. Urged down a disconnected path, the closer he gets, the less Q sees the girl he thought he knew…
