The wait is nearly over…

John Green’s newest novel will be released this autumn! Here are a few things you need to know about it provided by the publisher:

  • The book is called TURTLE’S ALL THE WAY DOWN. It begins with a fugitive billionaire and a cash reward.
  • The story is about a life-long friendship, the intimacy of an unexpected reunion and Star Wars fan fiction.
  • It’s also about Tuatara, which are reptiles that live in New Zealand. They look like lizards, but aren’t.
  • Its heroine is 16-year-old Aza Holmes. Aza sets out to look for clues to find the missing billionaire whilst grappling with mental illness. Her story is partly inspired by John’s own experiences. He says, “This is my first attempt to write directly about the kind of mental illness that has affected my life since childhood, so while the story is fictional, it is also quite personal.” J
  • John’s last book was published six years ago, and he’s been working on this one for years, but that’s not unusual -- THE FAULT IN OUR STARS took ten years to write. Readers should expect plenty of metaphors! 
  • In John’s words - “The great thing about figurative language and symbols and the like in novels is Is that you don’t have to be conscious of them to work.”

TURTLES ALL THE WAY DOWN will be released on October 10th, 2017. Pre-order your copy below and it will be waiting for you on release day!
