“Turtles All the Way Down” is a book by John Green that was published on Oct. 10, 2017.

In the book, the two protagonists, Aza and Daisy, investigate the disappearance of a fugitive billionaire with hopes of collect the $100,000 reward. Along the way, Aza starts to realize she has feelings for the billionaire’s son.

This book focuses on a lot more than just the mystery of the billionaire and the money. Throughout the book, several serious topics are addressed.

Aza suffers from serious anxiety that she always has an infection in her body. Several times a day, she would break up the skin on her finger, just to sanitize it.

Both Aza and Davis, the billionaire’s son, have dead parents. They first met when they went to a camp for kid’s missing a parent.

Those two topics are both things that most people try to avoid and not talk about. Not only does the book mention the issues, but it gives very interesting insight on it in a beautifully done way.

The only qualm I have with this book is that turtles were mentioned twice throughout the entire book. If you are looking for a book about turtles, this is not the book for you.

I really enjoyed this book and read it within 24 hours. It is a great, suspenseful book that also addresses some really interesting topic. I would recommend this book for anyone needing a good read.
