Paper Towns: 7 Moments We’re Excited to See

SPOILER ALERT!

When did you first read John Green's Paper Towns? I'm kind of embarrassed to admit that I only picked it up the other week, in preparation for the movie adaptation coming out next month. But I always think it's better late than never, and reading it now helped me picture Nat Wolff as Q and Cara Delevingne as Margo. Q and Margo are childhood friends who grew apart, and Q is secretly, hopelessly in love with Margo—or at least the idea of her. Based on Nat's scene-stealing skills and Cara's vibrant personality, I have a feeling they'll kill it and make their characters' relationship even more interesting.

Here are a few of my favorite Q and Margo moments from the book that we'll hopefully see in the movie. (Spoiler alert!)

 1  When Margo basically kidnapped Q for a night of life-changing adventures...

 2  And then rationalized her odd behavior.

"I didn't need you, you idiot. I picked you. And then you picked me back... And that's like a promise. At least for tonight. In sickness and in health. In good times and in bad. For richer and for poorer. Till dawn do us part."

 3  When they fox-trotted and slow danced to "Stars Fell on Alabama."

She raised one leg and gave me all her weight as I dipped her. She either trusted me or wanted to fall.

 4  When Margo told Q, "Here's a tip: you're cute when you're confident. And less when you're not."

Q will probably try not to show how kilig he is. Try being the operative word.

 5  When they got real with each other in the dead of the night.

 6  When they discussed the tricky art of being realistically hopeful.

"Nothing ever happens like you imagine it will." "But then again if you don't imagine, nothing ever happens at all." So right on so many levels.

 7  When Q finally got what he wanted but not in the way he expected.

It has taken us thousands of miles and many days, but here we are: her head on my shoulder, her breath on my neck, the fatigue thick inside both of us. We are now as I wished we could be then.
