Review of Turtles All The Way Down (no spoilers)

Turtles all the way down is a YA fiction, narrated by 16 year old Aza Holmes who is dealing with a mental illness.

While the blurb leads you to believe that the story is about Aza and her friend Daisy investigating the disappearance of a billionaire, the book is a lot more about Aza dealing with her OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) as she navigates falling in love for the first time and just living her normal day to day life.

I must admit that I did not enjoy his arguably most well known book, The Fault In Our Stars, and I was not looking forward to reading Turtles All The Way Down, reading it more as a book outside of my comfort zone. So I began reading it and from page 1 I was hooked. The way John Green vividly describes moments had me in gales of laughter one page and close to tears the next. I could not put it down, literally skipping dinner to keep reading it.

If you can not already tell from my review, I loved John Greens Turtles All The Way Down and would recommend it to anyone looking for a book.
