John Green did it again. He wrote yet another book that tugs at your heartstrings, and makes you feel the feelings. This book didn’t get the hype that The Fault in Our Stars did, which truly saddens me. When you read it, you can tell how much it Green had to research and experience to accurately describe every action that the main character felt.
The book itself is set in good ol’ America where Aza, a sixteen year old girl, and her best friend, Daisy, are trying to solve this mystery of a missing billionaire (who basically owns every company in the city but is a horrible human). It kinda goes into anxiety and thought spirals, which can be really triggering honestly because sometimes I had to take some deep breaths and continue reading because it did NOT hold back details. HOWEVER, it is a wonderful coming of age story that’s so innocent in its own way; it honestly makes you want to keep reading even if it’s three in the morning and you have work the next day (yes I speak from experience).
I can definitively say that John Green is one of my favorite authors of all time. He made me get into writing and reading. He showed me how you can take personal experiences, and with a touch of creativity, create a wonderful story. I really hope you give his writing a chance, even if you think you’re jumping on a bandwagon or go in with really low expectations.
