Are books with a main protagonist having a mental illness a trend? OCDaniel by Wesley King, Bent not broken by Lorna Schultz Nicholson, A tragic kind of wonderful by Eric Lindstrom… Turtles all the way down is a good example of this trend. The main character, Aza is anxious and has obsessive-compulsive behaviors that threaten her social life… well actually it threatens her actual life too. (DAM dam DAM… suspense!)
So, my opinion is: it’s a good book, but Paper towns and The fault in our stars are better. So whether you liked Turtles all the way down or not, read the two others they are worth it. Especially Paper towns, in my opinion.
This said, you may have liked Turtles all the way down so much you want a read-alike. Here are some for you if it is the case!
Enjoy the spring warmth by reading one of them outside!
