Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: 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.
Solving the mystery of fugitive billionaire Russell Pickett would bring a hundred-thousand-dollar reward, so Aza and her best friend, Daisy, are eager to investigate. They navigate the short distance from their homes in Indianapolis, as well as the broad social divides, that separate them from Russell Pickett's son, Davis. But Aza is living within the ever-tightening spiral of her own thoughts. Still hurting from the death of her father years ago, she's crippled by 'thought spirals' and the irrational, obsessive fear she has of microbes and bacteria.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2017 October #2
    *Starred Review* It's here: the eagerly awaited new novel by John Green, and—not to milk the suspense—it's superb. High-school junior Aza has an obsessive fear of being infected with the bacteria Clostridium difficile ("C. diff"), which can be fatal. Her fear has become obsession, plaguing her with "intrusives," thoughts that take over her mind, making her feel that she is not the author of her own life. She does, however, have a life: her father is dead; her mother is a teacher; her best friends are Mychal, a gifted artist, and Daisy, a well-known Star Wars fan-fiction author. To their trio is added Davis, whom Aza had known when they were 11. Davis' billionaire father has decamped, pursued by the police, leaving Davis and his younger brother parentless (their mother is dead) and very much on their own. How will the friends cope with all this? And how will Aza cope with her own problems? Green, a master of deeply felt material, handles all of this with aplomb. With its attention to ideas and trademark introspection, it's a challenging but richly rewarding read. It is also the most mature of Green's work to date and deserving of all the accolades that are sure to come its way.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: The only question is, how many shelves worth of copies can your library fit? You'll need all of them. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.
