Turtles All the Way Down 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.
How can the trait of persistence change the moment, an individual, a group, the world? Chelsea Clinton describes thirteen women living vastly different lives in different times who choose not to go to their corners. These women do not take a proverbial seat but rise to their potential in fields as varied as dance, law, medicine, and politics. The illustrations are compelling; the theme is timeless.
