Why I love it

From everyone's favorite young adult author (no, really, ask your mom!) comes his latest sure-to-delight novel. John Green has been more than a little secretive about the contents of Turtles All the Way Down, so we can't tell you much'”we haven't even been allowed to read it till the end! He is truly the king of avoiding spoilers. But here's what we can say: Turtles follows the friendship of two complicated teenage girls as they go on an adventure to try to locate a missing billionaire. And if we know John Green, there will be plenty of quotable quotes and magic along the way.

    John Green’s most personal, introspective book yet. He paints such a brilliant picture of the main character’s OCD (based on his own experience), making you feel for every character crossing the page.

    Tender, true, tortuous “Turtles” opens door on mental illness. Aza must deal with anxiety and OCD in a book about love, friendship, perseverance. A YA that resonates with adults, as Green always does.

    I’ve found John Green to be hit or miss, but this one was a slam dunk! He handles the mental health element with kindness and authenticity. It left me feeling like I understood more that I had before

    I’m a huge John Green fan and have almost read everyone of his books that he has authored himself and co-authored. Held my interest beginning to end. Hits you in the feels... definitely check it out

    Turtles accurately depicts what it is like to have OCD. It gave me a tool to describe to those around me what it is like functioning with this disorder, something I never had before. I am so thankful.
