Maps help Margo leave her home to get lost, but they also help Quentin find Margo. For Quentin, maps form a lifeline to Margo. Radar charts a map with the fastest possible route to Agloe purported location, but, ironically, Margo is in a paper town that isn’t physically on any maps besides the one she possesses. The real Margo can’t be found in any maps or brochures. Rather, she exists off the map. Maps and mapmaking lead Quentin to Margo, but in order to find her, he has to be willing to take the risk of leaving the map behind.
