Turtles All the Way Down by John Green
John Green’s recent book is unlike any that he has wrote before. While the book still focuses on young adults, it dives into a deeper acknowledgment of mental health and how difficult it is for us to understand someone dealing and battling with their own minds. I think John Green portrayed this excellent in this book.
While I do not want to spoil this for anyone, this book is about mystery, mental health, friendship, loss and stability. I highly recommend this specific book because it gave me a deeper insight on how someone who is dealing with issues beyond their control may feel and deal with things and let’s be honest, we all know someone suffering, even if they are suffering in silence.
