It all begins with a fugitive billionaire and the promise of a cash reward. Turtles All the Way Down is about lifelong friendship, the intimacy of an unexpected reunion, Star Wars fan fiction, and tuatara. But at its heart is Aza Holmes, a young woman navigating daily existence within the ever-tightening spiral of her own thoughts.

In his long-awaited return, John Green shares Aza's story with shattering, unflinching clarity.

I just finished it a couple days ago and I'm still trying to figure out how I feel about it. I've had a weird couple of weeks where I'm reading but when it comes to writing a review, I don't know what to say.

Tanvi, my reaction to this book is very similar to yours. I really don't know what to say about it. I don't very often read young adult lit and this is the first book by John Green that I have read. It is definitely an interesting study in teenage mental illness.

Yes the mental illness aspect was interesting but not that great apart from that. :(

Eve (everf) | 816 comments Great review Tanvi. Sorry it didn't work out. I started it but after about 50 pages I had to stop because other books were calling out for me ;)

Thanks, Eve! It's okay, I wanted to stop and read other books as well. :)
