Released in North America on October 10, 2017, Turtles All The Way Down by John Green has quickly earned a plethora of praise, resulting in it being touted as “a widely acclaimed best book of 2017”. And this acclaim is not without reason. Turtles All The Way Down is just as well-written and hard hitting as Green’s other books, earning it the same kind of praise as The Fault in our Stars and Looking for Alaska.
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.
