Turtles All The Way Down by John Green

In addition to my occult reads I do have a wide array of other genres that I read.

This is part of the contemporary read-a-thon for the week. This book is 3 of 7 that I have read. The other 2 will be posted on my Goodreads.

This book is about a 16 year old girl (guessing her age, maybe 17) that has a serious mental illness. It follows her thoughts and how she interacts with her family and friends, the anxiety that she deals with through out her days. A boy from her past that has shown her so much, and it is a tear jerker.

I shed some tears at the end of the book, and I really felt and wanted to see more of the characters, like how has their life changed after this set of occurrences. It was a really good book. I borrowed it from my library, but now I have to purchase it.

I like his writing style, and how you empathize with the characters. I think this author will be on my radar. I really want to see what else he has written.
