On several occasions the idea that the boy is “carrying the fire” repeatedly comes up(129). The idea that he carries the light of the world exists essentially because ultimately the boy resembles the last hope for the human race to move on from this situation. After his father passed away the boy traveled onto the road and noticed a man who convinced the boy to join him and his family so that he could survive. The boy, following the agreement to join them, gets a warm welcome from the mother and breathes life back into her stating that “the breath of God was his breath”(286). The death of the father represents the passing of the old world while the new family represents the hope for a better tomorrow.
It made for a good story but if in real life circumstances I wouldn't agree with the act of unwinding. I think the author did a good job with making it realistic but also drama filled. The more you read this story the more you got hooked to it. I would recommend this book to anyone because it makes everyone think about everything. Just the thought of being shipped off to be dismantled scares anyone.

This book was absolutely phenomenal. The quirky characters and the close relationships they had with each other pull in the reader. It uses suspense to keep the reader constantly guessing what will happen next. In this book Chris Crutcher confronts many mature themes such as mental illness, racism, suicide, and death, while still being able to keep the book light hearted in many places. It also explores the importance of friendship, romantic relationships, family, and dealing with personal loss.
What caught my attention the most was the way Q was persistent even if at times he wanted to give up on solving the problem he was always lead to trying to find Margo one way or another. Paper Towns did meet my expectations it was entertaining to read this book and think what would happen next. At first, I Wondered why the author didn’t write about Margo making the other decision, why pick the sad ending but then I realized, that it was a better ending the way he described it. I would recommend this book to others because in my point of view, I like how it has many plot twists throughout the story and it gets you thinking every time. I Would recommend this book to people who like to read about love stories as well as mysterious type of books.
