Imagine the guy or girl you’ve been in love with since childhood shows up a month before your high school graduation in your bedroom window with black face paint in the middle of the night. They want you to go on a revenge drive with them. Would you do it?
Quentin “Q” Jacobsen finds himself in this exact position when Margo Roth Spiegelman recruits him to be her accomplice on an epic night of pranking. Margo has devised a revenge mission on all of the people she feels have hurt her throughout high school. There are eleven parts to the plot, and Margo needs someone (and more importantly, a car) to help her complete her plan. However, the next day Margo disappears. She leaves a trail of mysterious clues for Q and he sets out on hilarious and exhilarating road trip with his friends to find her.
The movie is coming to theaters on July 24th. Be sure to read the book before you see the movie, so you can see what changes from the book to the movie. Stop by any library location afterward and let one of our teen or children’s librarians know what YOU think of the changes. We love talking about books!
