For Horton, Green shines light on anxiety
A great book that I have read this year is Turtles All the Way Down by John Green. The main character has a prominent anxiety disorder that John Green experiences himself. I was diagnosed with general anxiety about two years ago, and I loved seeing that there was a book that shined a light on a form of it! Despite what the character saw as faults, she had friends by her side, and though it got her into predicaments at times, she was able to conquer them and it didn’t seem as bad. I relate to this because a few friends I was close to were there for me even if they didn’t understand at times! Also, I realized my worries are nothing but thoughts and that I can accomplish more than I think I can in and outside of TJ. This book helped me realize I’m not alone, and I know there are other books out there that do the same for their readers.
