This book is split between the "before" and the "after" of the climax. The climax is so much of a mystery, so much of a surprise, that is was kind of John Green to leave a blank page in order to take the time to process what just happened. Also, I think it is a symbol of how once something like that happens, anyone's mind will just go into a blank haze for a while. That certainly happened for Miles, who could not really come to terms with everything until the very end of the book.
