The wait is over! John Green, the number one best-selling author of The Fault in Our Stars, is back. 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.

A beautiful story about mental health and how we live with it. It took me a while to warm up to it, but got hooked around a third through. The book is full of thought-provoking reflections about society, but also of YA-clichés. One of the only things that ruined this book for me is the robotic narrator, who sounds like an answering machine.
