When Margo Roth Spiegelman beckons Quentin Jacobsen in the middle of the night—dressed like a ninja and plotting an ingenious campaign of revenge—he follows her. Margo’s always planned extravagantly, and, until now, she’s always planned solo. After a lifetime of loving Margo from afar, things are finally looking up for Q . . . until day breaks and she has vanished. Always an enigma, Margo has now become a mystery. But there are clues. And they’re for Q.

All right, so here are the things I liked
- The book is somewhat a mystery sort of book–Quentin or Q and Margo goes on a revenge spree around the Orlando and the next morning, Margo goes missing, although Margo has left some clues behind for Q to find.
- It is funny and there are parts in the book in which made the reader laugh,
Things I didn’t like
- Ending of the book seems to be a bit rushed.
- There were unnecessary parts in the books that is irrelevant in the book.
Overall I rate this book as…
