Storyboard Text

  • Protagonist: Q
  • Antagonist: Margo
  • Theme
  • You never know what's really going on in someones life just because you think you know them.  
  • Quentin Jacobsen is a kind hearted and caring friend to the magnificent Margo Roth Speigelman.  Q plays the over-dramaticized version of the "hero" in this story, resulting in him being the friend that Margo must have forgotten about.  Q doesn't change very much throughout the story, however his innocent motives and general care for Margo really shines through.  
  • "I could feel her on her tiptoes and ten her mouth was right up against my ear and she said, very clearly, 'I.  Will.  Miss.  Hanging.  Out.  With.  You.'  'You don't have to', I answered aloud".  (Page 81)
  • Margo Roth Spiegelman plays the antagonistic runaway in this story.  She's not a bad person, but she has many faults.  Throughout the story, we see Margo change from being happy and alive, to hiding in an abandoned warehouse acrossed the US because she could no longer deal with living in Orlando.  Margo is a very clever character, and a bit of a "stinker". 
  • "...Margo Roth Spiegelman sits in a black leather office chair, hunched over a school desk, writing.  Her hair is much shorter-she has choppy bangs above her eyebrows and everything is mussed-up, as if to emphasize asymetry." (Page 281)
  • A common problem with todays youth is that many of them don't ask for help when they need it.  Another common problem is that when they finally do ask for help, they are often ignored.  Margo seemed like she was happy, but none of her friends realized that she wasn't.  It took them until they found her and asked why she left that they actully figured out what was wrong.  
  • "Margo always loved mysteries.  And in everything that came afterward, I could never stop thinking that maybe she loved mysteries so much that she became one".  (Page 8)
  • This is the part of the story before Margo goes missing as a runaway.  After a night with Q, sabotaging ex-friends and ex-boyfriends, Margo runs away and begins to leave clues to her location.  "I.  Will.  Miss.  Hanging.  Out.  With. You." was one of the last things Margo said before she ran off.  This foreshadows the upcoming events in the story.  
  • It is in this instance and many others that the author, John Green uses imagery to define the characteristics of scenes and characters.  By using descriptive vocabulary, the author was able to creat a scene for the reader to imagine.  The scene shows us what a teenage girl who has cut most of her hair and been living in an abandoned warehouse for the last month looks like.  
  • This quote represents point of view by using "I".  By using words such as I, me, my, and we, the author can show that there is a person telling the story from their perspective, which in this case, is true as the entire story is told in the first person POV by the main character and protagonist, Q.
