Review: ‘Towns’ is modest, middle-of-the-road teen drama

Based on an earlier teen fave novel by "The Fault in Our Stars" author John Green, "Paper Towns" is a mild coming-of-ager about dawning awareness and life lessons learned among a small group of Florida high school seniors. Part mystery story, part road movie and part pre-prom graduation romp, the film is most interesting as a perspective on adolescence in which all the girls are more mature, nervy and perceptive than any of the boys, who have some catching up to do if they're to have a chance with any of them.
