The fiction novel, Turtles All the Way Down, by John Green, follows sixteen year old Aza Holmes, a girl with severe anxiety caught in a peculiar situation. The disappearance of local billionaire, Davis Pickett Sr., highlights the news, offering a monetary reward to anyone with information on his whereabouts. With investigators struggling to find leads, Aza, who used to be friends with Davis Pickett Jr., the son of the enigmatic businessman, seems to be the only one who could have any possible information about the billionaire and his mysterious backstory. Aza is then pulled into the chaos of a case that is much more complicated then she initially thought. The main protagonist struggles to make pieces of a much bigger whole fall into piece, whilst dealing with her own fears and anxiety in this thrilling novel. My favorite character in the story would have to be Aza, who is the main protagonist and narrator of the story. She gives an interesting perspective to the events of the story and has a very unique way of thinking. My favorite part of the story would have to be when Aza and Daisy finally are able to take all of the information that they have worked hard to find about Davis Pickett Sr. and piece it all together to find the bigger picture of what happened to the enigmatic billionaire. I would give this book a 9/10 rating. This is a great novel, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone.
