John Green Reveals 'Turtles All The Way Down' Book Cover

John Green Reveals 'Turtles All The Way Down' Book Cover

The book cover for John Green‘s new book is out and it will definitely catch your eye!

The “Turtles All The Way Down” cover was unveiled today on GMA earlier this morning, with the author — who’s also behind “Looking For Alaska”, “Paper Towns” and “The Fault in Our Stars” — debuting it on Twitter afterwards.

The book, which will be out on October 10th almost everywhere, centers on 16-year-old Aza Holmes, a young woman looking for clues in the disappearance of a fugitive billionaire, while grappling with mental illness.

The story begins with a fugitive billionaire and a cash reward. It is about lifelong friendship, the intimacy of an unexpected reunion, Star Wars fan fiction, and tuatara. But at its heart is Aza Holmes, a young woman navigating daily existence within the ever-tightening spiral of her own thoughts.

“More of a spiral. (not a lot of literal turtles in the book, I’m afraid!)” John clarified a fan’s question about there being actual turtles in the book.

He adds about the cover, “I’m so grateful to Rodrigo Corral (who also made the cover of TFIOS) for designing this cover. For me, it captures the book brilliantly.”

John Green Announces Brand New Book 'Turtles All The Way Down' Coming in October

We can not contain our excitement over the news that John Green has a new book coming out in October!

The author — who’s also behind “Looking For Alaska”, “Paper Towns” and “The Fault in Our Stars” — revealed that his brand new novel, “Turtles All The Way Down” will hit shelves this fall.

The book centers on 16-year-old Aza Holmes, a young woman looking for clues in the disappearance of a fugitive billionaire, while grappling with mental illness.

The story begins with a fugitive billionaire and a cash reward. It is about lifelong friendship, the intimacy of an unexpected reunion, Star Wars fan fiction, and tuatara. But at its heart is Aza Holmes, a young woman navigating daily existence within the ever-tightening spiral of her own thoughts.

“I’ve been working on ‘Turtles All the Way Down’ for years, and I’m so excited to share it with readers this October,” John shared in a statement.

“This is my first attempt to write directly about the kind of mental illness that has affected my life since childhood, so while the story is fictional, it is also quite personal.”

John Green Says No 'Looking For Alaska' Movie Will Be Made

John Green Says No 'Looking For Alaska' Movie Will Be Made

We may not be getting that Looking For Alaska movie after all…

John Green took to Twitter this morning, addressing the movie based on his best selling book of the same name.

“As this has so many RTs, I guess I should say: No Looking for Alaska movie is forthcoming (to my knowledge anyway),” he wrote. “I have no control over the movie rights to Looking for Alaska. To my knowledge, Paramount (who own the rights) have no plans to make a film.”

This is really a bummer for JJJ, we loved the book and were looking forward to seeing it on the big screen.

TELL JJJ: How do you feel if no “Looking For Alaska” movie gets made?

John Green Tweets About 'Looking For Alaska' Movie & It's Not Looking Good

John Green Tweets About 'Looking For Alaska' Movie & It's Not Looking Good

When the movie adaption for John Green‘s “Looking For Alaska” was getting underway last year, JJJ was super excited!

However, it doesn’t look like we’ll be getting that movie anytime soon nor will John be involved in the project at all — and we’re not happy about it, and neither are fans.

“Okay, I have a kind of important announcement. I don’t usually prepare you with pre-announcement tweets, but I think it’s warranted here,” John started out. “Okay. Are you ready? Here is the announcement: I do not cast movies.”

He continued in some now deleted tweets: “In fact, the movie studio that owns the rights to the book in question won’t return my phone calls. They haven’t for months…I don’t think they like me. The feeling is profoundly mutual. So I can’t even get someone to answer the telephone, let alone cast a film.”

In a recent vlog, John expressed interest in buying the rights to the book back from Paramount — but that’s not looking good either.

“At this point I’m not involved in the project in any way,” he said. “I’m not going to lie, it definitely bums me out.”

Cara Delevingne Thanks John Green for Supporting Her After THAT Interview

Cara Delevingne Thanks John Green for Supporting Her After THAT Interview

Cara Delevingne is opening up more about that awkward interview she was put through while promoting her movie Paper Towns and she is thanking the book’s author John Green for his defense.

The popular author wrote a long blog post to explain why the interview might have went the way it did. Here’s an excerpt: “Cara refuses to stick to the script. She refuses to indulge lazy questions and refuses to turn herself into an automaton to get through long days of junketry. I don’t find that behavior entitled or haughty. I find it admirable. Cara Delevingne doesn’t exist to feed your narrative or your news feed — and that’s precisely why she’s so f–king interesting.”

After Cara saw that excerpt floating around social media, she tweeted saying, “Whoever said this! Thank you so much!”

John wrote back to her saying, “That was me! <3″ and she wrote a heartfelt response back. See below!
