    MarchingBandMan: The other quasi-existentialist John Green book. Miles Halter deals with existentialism/nihilism in a different way than Aza Holmes, yet this earlier, rawer YA novel expounds on similar themes.

“No one ever says goodbye unless they want to see you again.”

“Life is a series of choices between wonders.”

I liked this book.

While I certainly knew who John Green was, this was the first time I picked up one of his books. I don't read a lot of YA (my 59-year-old mom does; she considers herself YG -- Young Geriatric -- and thoroughly enjoys the YA genre). But I was enticed by the description and a protagonist, Aza, struggling with severe anxiety and OCD. Green, who has OCD, has said Aza was the only character he *could* write at this point, given his daily experiences and challenges. If you've lived any of this, if you've had thoughts you couldn't escape from -- and wondered, if you don't control them, who does? -- this book will resonate with you.

"Turtles All the Way Down" wasn't the most amazing book I've ever read, but it was well-written and captured so well an experience many can relate to. Recommend.

“The thing about a spiral is, if you follow it inward, it never actually ends. It just keeps tightening, infinitely.”

This book is partly a mystery, but it is mostly a character study of a teenager with mental illness. The story is fast-paced enough to hold a reader's interest, but there are ruminations and charming, thoughtful insights too. There were a handful of implausibilities and factual errors that jumped out at me, but they're all easily explained by perspective of the narrator.

I generally feel uncomfortable reading about the experience of mental illness. It's weirdly intimate. There's something different about empathizing with a likeable and emotionally relatable character who is suffering mental anguish compared to someone suffering physical pain. I think a book which was any more focused on that would've been too much for me, but this book balanced the pain with enough other stuff that I could handle it.

I picked up this book thinking it would be an easy read, because it is intended for young adults. It wasn't, and I got more out of it than I was anticipating. ( )

While it didn't rip my heart out entirely, the way I expected it to, I spent the majority of the book riveted. Green does such an incredible job of putting Aza's thoughts on display for us that I couldn't get away. A wonderfully emotional journey. ( )

Aza Holmes is just your average teenager: trying to get through high school, prepare for college, spend time with friends, experiment with dating, get through the ups and downs of mental illness, and track down a fugitive with a $100,000 reward.

The mystery aspect is only a small part of the story, giving it an interesting twist while still maintaining a realistic feel. The main focus of the story is Aza’s struggle with mental illness, wherein her thoughts sometimes take her captive and make daily life difficult at best and dangerous at worst. Her experiences are based on those of the author and the way it’s written paints a vivid portrait of what it’s like to live with this kind of condition. On top of that, I really enjoyed the story and the growth of Aza’s relationships with her friends and family! ( )

I put this one off for a long time and honestly, I would have been better off never reading it. I understand the main character has mental health issues such as extreme anxiety and therefore we are also exposed to that anxiety. I have no problems with this. I used to be a therapist and I'm on medication for anxiety and depression and have had therapy. What I object to is just the awfulness of every single person in this book. They all seemed to use each other, not actually like each other and when the "mystery" is finally solved, the terribleness continues and then the book just ends. I completely do not understand what the fuss was and honestly, skimmed some of it because I was bored and annoyed. Save yourself the aggravation and skip it. ( )

At the time I first realized I might be fictional, my weekdays were spent at a publicly funded institution on the north side of Indianapolis called White River High School, where I was required to eat lunch at a particular time -- between 12:37 P.M. and 1:14 P.M. -- by forces so much large than myself that I couldn't even begin to identify them.

No one ever says goodbye unless they want to see you again.
But I was beginning to learn that your life is a story told about you, not one that you tell....You think you're the painter, but you're the canvas.
Your now is not your forever.
I thought about him asking me if I'd ever been in love. It's  a weird phrase in English, in love, like it's a sea you drown in or a town you live in. You don't get to be in anything else---in friendship or in anger or in hope. All you can be in is love.
