A paper town is A place with no description. A place, or More accurately, a town/city, that has such no originality for it to be possessed as a place With flavor, or class. The paper town described In the original story by (John Green) is Orlando, Florida. One of the main characters (Margo Spiegelman) explains how everyone in the contaminated city is paper. Meaning that everyone there was built just to live and die. For no Immediate purpose. They spend as required and do nothing out of the originality. Although these paper People believe that they are doing what they are expected to keep the unoriginal society running on its uncoordinated Axis, and making their part and change in the community. However, what Margo begins to realize is that they are all controlled factors, as in a experiment. They are just paper people, like paper dolls. Just living in a Paper Society with fellow paper People.

Paper Towns is a word originally phrased by Author John Green. Published by Penguin Group 2008
Look at all those cul-de-sacs, the streets that turn in on themselves all the houses that were built to fall apart. All those paper people in their paper houses burning the furniture to stay warm. All the paper kids drinking the beer some bum bought for them at the paper convenience store. Everyone demented with the mania of owning things. All the things paper-thin and paper-frail. It's just a paper town.

Towns that appear to be beautiful when you look at them from afar but up close it's different, you don't look at it the same way. Up close you see the the truth that is hidden behind the beauty from a far and sometimes you wish just to see the beauty and not the truth.
Jennifer: Look how beautiful Dallas is from the hotel roof!
Katy: It's a Paper Town. It may be beautiful from here but the closer it is the less you see the beauty in it.
