There is a missing person mystery in this book, but it isn’t really about that. It’s about friendship and love, it’s about trying to truly understand your best friend, it’s about anxiety and fighting your demons, and giving in to them sometimes. It’s about mental illness. It’s about grief. It’s about life. It’s beautiful and important. It’s a John Green book, possibly the best John Green book. It made me feel less alone. I loved how friendship, in this book as in life, is just as important and turbulent as romance. You will cry, you will laugh, you will fall in love with Aza, Daisy, Davis, Mychal, Noah, and the rest. I can’t stop thinking about this book in the best possible way.
"A wrenching and revelatory novel." - The New York Times
"Green finds the language to describe the indescribable. . . . A must-read for those struggling with mental illness, or for their friends and family." --San Francisco Chronicle

It's quite rare to find someone who sees the same world you see.
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.
