Turtles All The Way Down by John Green (mini)

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. @goodreads 

I thought I would fall in love with this book but I just didn't. 😕

Now I give all of the stars to Aza, Davis and Noah.

I loved Aza so much and as I have mental disorders I can totally relate to her. She's a wonderful character.

Davis is her boy ish friend and he's awesome too. Noah is his brother. They are totally rich and their father is missing. So this is about finding each other and finding a missing father. A few other things thrown into the mix.

I think what kept this from being a 5 star was Daisy. I just didn't like her at all. She was Aza's best friend. I just couldn't handle her.

So, on to the next!

Happy Reading!

  1. I'm so nervous about giving this one a read...

  2. Hi Melissa, glad to read your review of Turtles All the Way down. I love John Green and was curious about this book. Glad you liked the characters.

  3. I have been hearing a lot of negative things about Daisy. I know I struggle with unlikable characters, but I am surprised to hear that JG gave the MC such a crap best friend.
