Earlier this summer, Green announced details of his upcoming book, delighting fans everywhere who have been awaiting new material since the 2012 release of The Fault in Our Stars.

 

Though the release of his newest work is one agonizing month away, Green released a video on his Youtube channel vlogbrothers today that gives fans a preview of what to expect.

 

Reading the first chapter of Turtles All the Way Down, Green introduces readers to protagonist Aza Holmes, a high school student plagued by severe OCD (obsessive-compulsive disorder). Adapting to the character's voice, Green opens up the narrative by describing a lunchtime experience in which seemingly normal high school routines pose unique difficulties to Holmes. Speaking with haunting emotion, Green delivers a mesmerizing preview.
