⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
The first book I‘ve ever seen my ocd represented in. I absolutely loved the representation as I felt like I was reading about my self and trying to find the magic off switch to turn off the thoughts. I just felt like I was reading two separate stories and thought it should be about her ocd or the disappearance and mystery.

I generally consider myself a fan of John Green‘s work, and this book was more of the same consistent quality from him. I enjoyed the characters, and the slow progression of the story. At times it was hard to read but I think that‘s part of what goes along with the subject matter; it‘s hard to fathom someone else going through that if you haven‘t.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I haven‘t read a John Green book in a couple years and was kind of worried going into it, but I really liked this one! There is mental health representation that I personally relate to and made me enjoy this more knowing I‘m not the only one in the world who thinks like I do. The timeline also works pretty well. I really enjoyed that Green wrote in scenes where the main character was in therapy or at school.

malloriebane I‘m so glad you enjoyed it! I‘ll definitely have to move this up on my TRB now! 😊 2mo
RaeannReads @malloriebane Yes! You totally should I read it for Care of Magical Creatures, a book under 400 pages. There‘s some sad scenes, cute scenes, and scenes where you‘re like why the hell are you doing this (but in a good way haha) 2mo
malloriebane Love it! Sounds right up my alley @RaeannReads 2mo

This was a great window into the world of a young adult struggling with mental illness. It's a mystery that deals with themes of integrity, wealth, class, grief, and relationships. "Nothing in this world is deserved, except for love."

• I have never read John Green before, but have heard much praise over the years. I suffer from OCD, and since the MC in this book has OCD, I think this one might be a good place to start. I was so excited to hear the premise of this book. Can anyone vouch for this title in particular, and give some encouragement to read this author? Several of his books are on my TBR. •

Megabooks My favorite of his is the one I‘ll tag. This one was in the middle for me as far as his go. Solid, but not great. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 2mo

It has been some time that I've read a John Green book. I liked it more then I thought I would. I liked the story. It was interesting to read about a young person with anxiety problems.

Just finished this work of art today—loved it! Loved John Green‘s treatment of health (especially mental health in this one), and grief. Loved how I had to look up some art and music to see what the characters were seeing and that I wanted to do that. Characters ring true to life and are believable. Will be looking for anything else John Green publishes!

TrishB Hi 👋 long time no post! I enjoyed this book too. 2mo

I listened to this on audio. It was good, a realistic look at what anxiety looks like for some people and how it affects them and their loved ones. I found many parts of this frustrating but most of it is attributed to the fact that teenagers are naturally poor decision makers in many instances.

Felt like being in their mind with ever tumbling thoughts. I cried because I enjoyed it, it was complex and abstract but also relatable & thought-provoking.

I didn't like this one as much as some of his others, but it was still a solid read, great YA character and good insight into mental illness.

This is a good #audiobook. Good narration, fast past story of a teen with mental health issues, her friendships, a disappearance and a romance. If being “inside“ the brain of someone with anxiety or other mental health issues is a trigger this book might not be for you. John Green's writing is so good, so easy to travel and very entertaining. #litsyAtoZ challenge @bookishmarginalia

Life has been hectic & I haven't had much reading time, so today all I wanted for Mother's day was my hammock and my book. I found this paragraph fitting for today. ❤ Happy Mother's day Littens!
