The part that comes to mind first is when they almost wrecked the car because of the cow in the street. It caught me so off guard when reading and made my heart pound. It was an amazing part of the book.

When they had the almost wreck with the cow while driving and Ben saved the day because Q panicked. I almost had a heart attack. But it was awesome.

And then the follow up, "Hey, remember that time when we almost hit that cow..." back and forth they went on with for a while had me in stitches laughing, though my heart was still pounding from the adrenaline rush.
I agree. This scene was indeed a jaw dropper. I enjoyed it :)
Live Life to the Fullest and Enjoy Reading!!

When they almost hit the cow, it was heart pounding. A little funny when I thought about it later.

The most jaw-dropping part for me was finding Margo in the end. To me, it was crazy how she had left clues, but purely vague, and that she was still going to leave. I never thought that she might not have wanted to be found, and I was even more surprised that she continued on her journey.

I think instead of giving us the characters we expected to become a couple, John Green completely switched it up. We were figuring Margo would end up with Quentin because, you know - the hero gets the girl - but we get something completely different. I think the reason it's so hard to believe is because we have Lacey put down as the 'it' girl while Ben is the adorkable, goofy nerd.
