Reading progress update: I've read 162 out of 358 pages.

Paper Towns - John Green

Sudden jarring change to present tense on page 160. This isn't going to be a thing, is it? I'm picturing the editor, after having already lost the battle over the unnecessary hyphens, throwing her red pen across the room and screaming, "Fine! Do whatever the hell you want!" Because I like to imagine this is what most editors would do when faced with inexplicable tense changes in manuscripts by insanely popular authors who could publish photocopies of dog poo pictures and still make the NYT Bestsellers list.
