John Green is fast becoming a standout in the sea of young adult publishing. As he often does, he comes at this story with a bleak, edgy view of teenage life, balanced with a wry sense of humor. Happily, his novel has been paired with an inspired choice of narrator. Dan John Miller delivers a performance that rings with authenticity as he captures the sarcasm, frustration, and longing of a teenage boy in a tone perfectly suited to the material. The story revisits the ever-popular topic of a boy's fascination with a beautiful, free-spirited girl. Quentin, the first-person narrator, follows the clues left behind when the girl he's loved from afar since childhood disappears, after spending her last night in town bringing him along on her latest adventure.
