Hello babies. Welcome to Earth. It’s hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It’s round and wet and crowded. On the outside, babies, you’ve got a hundred years here. There’s only one rule that I know of, babies, “God damn it, you’ve got to be kind.”

John Green fever is spreading coast to coast!
powells:

"Paper Towns starts with a dead man that two children find in the park and picks up speed from there. When his childhood best friend, Margo, goes AWOL, Quentin must put together some cryptic clues to find her. John Green has impressed me again with his natural wit and engaging story line.”
Blakelee M. recommends Paper Towns by John Green.
