Quentin Jacobsen

Quentin is the main character and narrator. He is a senior in high school and a good student. His life is very average and he is what people would call a "normal" person. A good word to describe him would be determined.

Margo is a popular girl at school. She is very mysterious and does her own thing. She seeks adventure and floats through life doing what pleases herself not letting feelings or emotions effect her much.

What I like

I like how the book keeps you interested because something is always happening there is never blank space in the book that you could get bored at. I also like how its different from other stories and has a good storyline that doesn't get confusing throughout. I recommend it to all people who like to read because I think this would be interesting to anyone.
