KENILWORTH, NJ – Twenty David Brearley students gathered earlier this week to review John Green’s newest book, “Turtles All the Way Down.”

Green, a popular young adult author, was inspired by his own struggles with anxiety. The book’s main character, a high school girl, struggles with severe anxiety disorder.

“Many of our students enjoyed the read and were captivated by the heroine’s struggles, but others could not relate to it and thought it was not one of Green’s best works,” Superintendent Dr. Thomas Tramaglini said in his weekly roundup.

The students enjoyed homemade snacks as they discussed the book.
