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. 

Our heroine, 16-year-old Aza Holmes, sets out to look for clues to find the missing billionaire whilst dealing with mental illness. Her story was inspired by John Green's own experiences. The author says: "This is my first attempt to write directly about the kind of mental illness that has affected my life since childhood, so while the story is fictional, it is also quite personal." In his long-awaited return, John Green shares Aza's story with shattering, unflinching clarity.
