Turtles delivers a lesson that we so desperately need right now: Yes, it is okay not to be okay . . . John Green has crafted a dynamic novel that is deeply honest, sometimes painful, and always thoughtful, delivered with the characteristic charm the author is known for. John Green, welcome back. We missed you. (Mashable)

A thoughtful look at mental illness and a debilitating obsessive-compulsive disorder that doesn't ask but makes you feel the constant struggles of its main character . . . Turtles explores the definition of happy endings, whether love is a tragedy or a failure, and a universal lesson for us all: 'You work with what you have'. (USA Today)

A full-on emotional bleed-out . . . John Green hasn't created a book as much as he's created a place - a place to have your most indefinable and grotesque thoughts articulated, to ponder the disconnected reality you experience . . . No matter where you are on the spiral - and we're all somewhere - Green's novel makes the trip, either up or down, a less solitary experience. (The Globe and Mail)
