Best audiobook for teens in 2017/2018: Turtles All the Way Down by John Green read by Kate Rudd

Jan 14 2018

 

Turtles All the Way Down is the long-awaited return novel by John Green, the acclaimed, award-winning author of Looking for Alaska and The Fault in Our Stars. This time he shares Aza’s story of love, resilience, and the power of lifelong friendship. Instead of reading it on paper I listened to the beautiful audiobook read by Kate Rudd during my school run in the car every day.  Turtles All the Way Down is without a shadow of a doubt the best Teen and Young Adult fiction book of 2017.
