“Wrenching and revelatory.” An instant #1 bestseller, the widely acclaimed Turtles All the Way Down is John Green's brilliant and shattering new novel.

“A tender story about learning to cope when the world feels out of control.” – People

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.

    This book is really good! I really like how the main character had a mental illness because a lot of teens and adults experience that kind of thing. The book is really inspiring with all of the quotes and things that John Green included. It is very well-written and hard to put down! On the inside cover, it sounded more of a Mystery than Realistic Fiction to me so I was a little disappointed but it was a really good book. I'd recommend it if you are comfortable reading a book with a lot of cussing and mental illnesses.

      I love this book! I think that everyone should read it. It is good for everyone. When you read it, you get to see what it is really like to have anxiety, and it is so engaging. I could not put it down. It is also super well written.
