Ultimately, to track down Margo, Quentin must find a deeper understanding of true friendship - and true love. Quentin Jacobsen - Q to his friends - is eighteen and has always loved the beautiful and edgy Margo Roth Spiegelman. Nine years ago they discovered a dead body together but now, at their Central Florida high school, Q's a nerd while Margo is uber-cool. One night, before graduating, Q is basking in the predictable boringness of his life when Margo persuades him to join her in come midnight mayhem and vengeance While her family shrugs off this latest disappearance, Q follows Margo's string of elaborate clues - including an unnerving poem about death.

Q's friends Radar, Ben and Lacey help with the search, and a post from a website turns up: Margo will be in a certain location for the next 24 hours only. They drive through the night, racing the clock. Is Q ready for what he might find? Quentin Jacobsen has spent a lifetime loving the magnificently adventurous Margo Roth Spiegelman from afar.

So when she cracks open a window and climbs into his life- dressed like a ninja and summoning him for an ingenious campaign of revenge- he follows.

After their all-nighter ends, and a new day breaks, Q arrived at school to discover that Margo, always an enigma, has now become a mystery. But Q soon learns that there are clues- and they are for him.

Urged down a disconnected path, the closer he gets, the less Q sees the girl he thought he knew A detective is enlisted to search for Margo, but he is neither helpful nor hopeful that she will be found. Through her vague clues, Quentin and his friends are led to an old, abandoned minimall in which they find Margo has passed time. Her camp-out in the minimall contains maps and other clues to suggest that Margo has been plotting out her route there.

Quentin takes short trips to all the pseudovisions he can find in Central Florida to see if she is camping out in one, but does not find her. Over the course of his search for Margo, Quentin, who hangs out with the band geeks, is able to restore order to the chaos that is the high school social hierarchy, and has earned some respect from the popular crowd.

At the party, Quentin observes the gathering as the only sober attendee, which gives him some perspective about the imminent end of high school. Quentin continues his search, going through the motions of school and final exams with his mind constantly occupied by thoughts about Margo.

This gives Quentin only twenty-four hours to get there. Part Three outlines this epic road trip from Central Florida to upstate New York, which Quentin documents hour-by-hour.

The road trip is frantic, and they even get into a minor accident, but it is a bonding experience for the four friends. When they arrive in Agloe, Margo acts indifferent and cold towards them. Lacey, Ben, and Radar get angry and leave, but Quentin stays and talks to Margo, who opens up to him.
