“So surprising and moving and true that I became completely unstrung.” – The New York Times
Named a best book of the year by: The New York Times, NPR, TIME, Wall Street Journal, Boston Globe, Entertainment Weekly, Southern Living, Publishers Weekly, BookPage, A.V. Club, Bustle, BuzzFeed, Vulture, and many more!
JOHN GREEN, the acclaimed author of Looking for Alaska and The Fault in Our Stars, returns with a story of shattering, unflinching clarity in this brilliant novel of love, resilience, and the power of lifelong friendship.
Aza Holmes never intended to pursue the disappearance of fugitive billionaire Russell Pickett, but there’s a hundred-thousand-dollar reward at stake and her Best and Most Fearless Friend, Daisy, is eager to investigate. So together, they navigate the short distance and broad divides that separate them from Pickett’s son Davis.
Aza is trying. She is trying to be a good daughter, a good friend, a good student, and maybe even a good detective, while also living within the ever-tightening spiral of her own thoughts.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Disconsolate and crippled by OCD, high schooler Aza Holmes is trapped in her own head. When a local billionaire’s highly publicized disappearance leads Aza to reconnect with the man’s son—a childhood friend—the wall encircling her psyche threatens to crumble. John Green grounds us in Aza’s perspective even as he legitimizes the frustrations of friends and family whose love for her is challenged. Turtles All the Way Down starts as a mild romp that doesn’t take itself too seriously, but ultimately resolves into something we found beautifully deep and soulful.

JOHN GREEN IS FINALLY BACK
It's amazing and I've only read the description.
If you read only one book this year, let it be this one.
This book makes you feel the gut wrenching darkness that can overtake people who find themselves in a spiral of the unknown self. I found myself hanging onto the words with an immense yearning to get out of the spiral Aza found herself in. But there is also hope to be found in the pages of this book. It is a mix of beautifully written words, heartbreaking emotions, and an unbelievable connectedness to characters that experience things you yourself may never fully understand. If you read only one book this year, let it be this one. And fully immerse yourself in it. You won’t regret it.
