Did you hear!? Did you hear the news?! John Green announced the title and release date of his new book and the book world went NUTS!
You know John Green right. Author of The Fault In Our Stars and Paper Towns (which were movies) His new book which will be released October 10th ( YES THIS YEAR!!) is called Turtles All The Way Down.
I loved the responses from fans and authors alike!
(From AFT Relax News) 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 (WHAT!?), and tuatara. But at its heart is Aza Holmes, a young woman navigating daily existence within the ever-tightening spiral of her own thoughts.
In his long-awaited return, John Green shares Aza’s story with shattering, unflinching clarity.
According to the plot summary, the forthcoming novel focuses on Aza Holmes, a young woman “navigating daily existence within the ever-tightening spiral of her own thoughts.”
The title will no doubt be cryptic for some and familiar for others. “Turtles All the Way Down” makes reference to a notion in mythology that the entire Earth is supported on the back of a World Turtle, itself perched atop additional turtles. What, then, one might ask, is the last turtle standing on? It is “turtles all the down,” goes the reply.
The novel will be Green’s first since 2012’s “The Fault in Our Stars,” which is focused on two cancer-stricken teenagers, “Turtles All the Way Down” is likewise set to tackle sensitive issues.”This is my first attempt to write directly about the kind of mental illness that has affected my life since childhood,” said Green, “so while the story is fictional, it is also quite personal.”Green originally announced the new book at VidCon, which wraps up Friday; that event was founded by John Green and his brother Hank Green, who together form the YouTube duo Vlogbrothers. Over on Amazon the book is already a number-one best-seller thanks to eager pre-orders.The book follows 16-year-old Aza Holmes, who copes with mental illness while investigating a missing fugitive billionaire.(Yahoo Entertainment)
I LOVE that more books are being written about mental illness. It’s something that needs to be out there. It’s not taboo.
I am SOOOO excited for this! I mean we’ve all been waiting for this for 5 YEARS!! Please excuse me while I happy dance for the rest of my Friday (and the 3 months and a handful of day sorryimreallynotgoodatmath until this beauty of a book is in my hands!)
Yes John. Yes you are!
