Praise

A wrenching and revelatory novel. The New York Times

Tender, wise, and hopeful. The Wall Street Journal

Turtles delivers a lesson that we so desperately need right now: Yes, it is okay not to be okay…. John Green has crafted a dynamic novel that is deeply honest, sometimes painful, and always thoughtful, delivered with the characteristic charm the author is known for. John Green, welcome back. We missed you.” – Mashable

A full-on emotional bleed-out…. John Green hasn’t created a book as much as he’s created a place—a place to have your most indefinable and grotesque thoughts articulated, to ponder the disconnected reality you experience . . . . No matter where you are on the spiral—and we’re all somewhere—Green’s novel makes the trip, either up or down, a less solitary experience.” – The Globe and Mail

A thoughtful look at mental illness and a debilitating obsessive-compulsive disorder that doesn’t ask but makes you feel the constant struggles of its main character. . . . Turtles explores the definition of happy endings, whether love is a tragedy or a failure, and a universal lesson for us all: ‘You work with what you have.’” – USA Today

A new modern classic. The Guardian

Green’s most authentic and most ambitious work to date.” – Bustle

An existential teenage scream.” – Vox

“An incredibly powerful tale of the pain of mental illness, the pressures of youth, and coming of age when you feel like you’re coming undone.” – Shelf Awareness

★ “A richly rewarding read…the most mature of Green’s work to date and deserving of all the accolades that are sure to come its way.” – Booklist

★ “In an age where troubling events happen almost weekly, this deeply empathetic novel about learning to live with demons and love one’s imperfect self is timely and important.” – Publishers Weekly

★ “A deeply resonant and powerful novel that will inform and enlighten readers even as it breaks their hearts. A must-buy.” – School Library Journal

Critical acclaim for The Fault in Our Stars:
 
“Damn near genius . . . The Fault in Our Stars is a love story, one of the most genuine and moving ones in recent American fiction, but it’s also an existential tragedy of tremendous intelligence and courage and sadness.” —Lev Grossman, TIME Magazine
 
“This is a book that breaks your heart—not by wearing it down, but by making it bigger until it bursts.” —The Atlantic
 
“Remarkable . . . A pitch-perfect, elegiac comedy.” —USA Today

“[Green’s] voice is so compulsively readable that it defies categorization. You will be thankful for the little infinity you spend inside this book.” —NPR.org

“John Green deftly mixes the profound and the quotidian in this tough, touching valentine to the human spirit.” —The Washington Post 
 
“[Green] shows us true love—two teenagers helping and accepting each other through the most humiliating physical and emotional ordeals—and it is far more romantic than any sunset on the beach.” —New York Times Book Review
