By John Green

Part 2, Chapter 11

  • Quentin won't stop talking about Margo Roth Spiegelman's possible suicide the next morning, and Lacey starts crying.
  • In English class, Quentin decides to ask his teacher to help him analyze some Walt Whitman.
  • She says the poem probably isn't a suicide note—it's about life being "sacred and valuable" (2.11.20). Oh, oops.
  • He tries to pester Ben and Radar about this new poetry interpretation the next morning, but they're busy preparing for prom.
  • Quentin borrows the minivan to hunt more pseudovisions, but again, finds nothing.
