“A tender story about learning to cope when the world feels out of control.” – People

Sixteen-year-old Aza never intended to pursue the mystery of fugitive billionaire Russell Pickett, but there’s a hundred-thousand-dollar reward at stake and her Best and Most Fearless Friend, Daisy, is eager to investigate. So together, they navigate the short distance and broad divides that separate them from Russell Pickett’s son, Davis.
   
Aza is trying. She is trying to be a good daughter, a good friend, a good student, and maybe even a good detective, while also living within the ever-tightening spiral of her own thoughts. 
 
In his long-awaited return, John Green, the acclaimed, award-winning author of Looking for Alaska and The Fault in Our Stars, shares Aza’s story with shattering, unflinching clarity in this brilliant novel of love, resilience, and the power of lifelong friendship.

    Such a moving, remarkable story. Draws you in to Aza and her story and her struggles in such an honest and unflinching and difficult way but that also makes you never want it to end. The single most accurate and heart-wrenching portrayal of living with OCD that I’ve ever read. Will forever be grateful to John Green for putting words to all these emotions and experiences I’ve struggled to verbalize throughout my life. Recommend it so highly to absolutely everyone. Thank you
  • As good as always

    I was just as captivated by this one as I was with all of his others. He finds a way to write about hard things in a way that doesn’t take away from them and still makes them relatable.

    I haven’t even had the chance to read this yet but I have read a review that has already made me cry. Not from sadness, but from relatable(ness). I have a box set of 4 of your books that I have always treasured. And now my favorite author has written a book that I can relate on a whole new level. So many books and shows misrepresent OCD but I hope the six years that went into writing this book gets it right.

    John Green tells an amazing story that I can relate to so much. It was my first John Green book I’ve ever read and I love it! Ive decided to read his other books. The title is confusing at first when you start reading it but the book explains it later on.

    I have never read any of his books and my school library was giving them out so I picked it up. LIFE. CHANGING. This is a book that you read and can not think of anything else for days after. The characters are in-depth and are filled to the brim with emotions. The plot is grand. People with mental illnesses should DEFINITELY pick up this beauty as they should be able to relate to Aza. Yes, it starts off slow but trust me, stay until the end with this one. You won't be disappointed.
