Turtles All the Way Down by John Green
John Green really knows how to get inside the mind of the teenager; I’d wager it’s because he remembers well what it was like to be one (some of us probably always will, myself included.) This is his first book that explicitly tackles mental illness, which makes it a standout from his other work, and is important for that reason. I’m sure this story will resonate with a lot of readers.
While it’s no The Fault in Our Stars (my personal favorite), it’s on par with Green’s other novels, so if you enjoy his writing style–as I do–then you will enjoy this read.
