Description

A wrenching and revelatory novel. The New York Times

Green finds the language to describe the indescribable. . . . A must-read for those struggling with mental illness, or for their friends and family.” —San Francisco Chronicle

#1 New York Times Bestseller • #1 Wall Street Journal Bestseller • #1 International Bestseller • USA Today Bestseller

It’s quite rare to find someone who sees the same world you see.

Sixteen-year-old Aza never intended to pursue the mystery 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 Russell 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. 
 
In his long-awaited return, John Green, the acclaimed, award-winning author of Looking for Alaska and The Fault in Our Stars, shares Aza’s story with shattering, unflinching clarity in this brilliant novel of love, resilience, and the power of lifelong friendship.

    I could not put this book down. The depth that mental illness is described in is both relatable and not relatable, and completely intriguing. I feel as if I could read about Aza and the inner-workings of her mind forever.
  • Deeply Profound and Beautiful

    Turtles All the Way Down is a heartbreaking story about mental illness, love, and friendship. In John Green’s best work yet, Aza Holmes is lead down a rabbit hole by the disappearance of a construction billionaire, where she finds a love one from her past that starts everything. This book is very hard to read - not for the writing or the story - but the content covered. It’s so heartbreakingly tender, real, raw, and honest, that it hits home. The jittery writing attributed to Aza’s anxiety rattles you physically and emotionally, and left a toll on me. Everything about this book is wonderful. This is truly John Greens best story yet.

    This book was the first time I have ever heard of someone having the same mental health illness that I have. It was empowering and made me feel like someone else out there knew exactly what went through my brain every day. Thank you John Green for putting this illness into words when I couldn’t.
  • Poeticly confusing

    This book with it’s garbled sentences and abstract concepts is a form of pure poetry. It shows that something can profound and succinct at the same time
  • Amazing, as always

    John Green is my favorite author. And this book shows exactly why. The way he is able to put mental illness into words is extraordinary. I've never related to a book so much. He's simply an amazing author and this book is one of the best I've read in awhile. I read it in a couple days, and was sad when it was over. It was such a good book.

    Green has really had some amazing books that make your heart feel something. This wasn't one of them I'm sorry to say. It didn't have the POW of Paper Towns and Alaska. I felt bored and strangely confused with a side of anxiety. Just my review....
  • Exquisite and heartbreaking

    Best book I've read in a long time. Captures mental illness in a way that I haven't seen before.

    Just reading the first few pages lulled me to sleep. Hype is a powerful drug. Writing style isnt that exemplary…sounds like a Ya middle-age...
  • You will not forget this book.

    So worth the wait. This story is packed with soul-piercing introspection that resonates like it was written just for me. I can't wait to read this book again. And again.
