about this item
For as long as he can remember, Quentin (known to all as "Q") has admired--and perhaps even loved--his glamorous and popular neighbor Margo Roth Spiegelman. "Q" is devastated when, a month before their high school graduation, Margo takes him out for a midnight adventure and then mysteriously disappears. Working from a series of clues that the enigmatic Margo might have left behind for him, "Q" enlists the help of his two "band geek" pals, Ben and Radar, as well as Margo's friend Lacey, to discover what has become of their missing classmate. However, as they start to work out Margo's physical location, they all come to realize that the real Margo--and the depth of her unhappiness--is a mystery to them all. A 2008 Edgar Award Nominee in the Best Young Adult category.
Having been in love with Margo forever, Quentin is happy to help her with her strange plots and campaigns for revenge, but when she vanishes one evening without a trace, Quentin finds himself delving into clues in order to resolve many unanswered questions. 75,000 first printing.
