Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review A new modern classic * Guardian * A wrenching and revelatory novel * The New York Times * Imaginative . . . affecting . . . unforgettable * Heat * Written with a sure grasp of the thought processes of teenagers . . . Another winner * The Sunday Times * Tender, wise, and hopeful * The Wall Street Journal * Green's most authentic and most ambitious work to date * Bustle * An existential teenage scream * Vox * 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 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 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 *
