Turtles All the Way Down (Paperback)John Green (author)
- In stock
The creator of The Fault in Our Stars and Looking for Alaska is on dazzling form with this movingly honest portrayal of fear, love and friendship that entirely lives up to the hype.
"A hundred thousand dollars," Daisy said. "And you know his kid."
The master of YA returns with an immediate, coming-of-age classic; John Green is back, and the book is Turtles all the Way Down.
Meet Aza Holmes. She’s a teenager, bright but hemmed in by troubles: introverted, obsessed by bacteria and the transmission of disease, her every thought is edged by doubt and reflection.
Daisy, however, is her Best and Most Fearless Friend, and Daisy has a plan. A plan involving a missing billionaire and the promise of a hundred thousand dollar reward, money that could be theirs if only they could figure out where he has gone. That’s where Russell comes in, and that’s where things start to get really interesting.
Turtles all the Way Down can only have come from the pen of John Green, the author behind Looking for Alaska, An Abundance of Katherines, Paper Towns, Will Grayson, Will Grayson and, of course, the unforgettable The Fault in Our Stars.
Combining mystery, love, truth, courage and the meaning of real friendship, Turtles all the Way Down stands as John Green’s most personal story yet, drawing deep on his own experience of growing up in an uncertain world. 'It will pluck the strings of those in tune with it,' noted Matt Haig. 'It will resonate with, and comfort, anxious young minds everywhere. It might just be a new modern classic.'
