This is the story of Aza Holmes and her struggles with mental illness--particularly anxiety caused by rumanitive thinking. It begins with a fugitive billionaire and a cash reward. But it's so much more than that. It's an exploration of friendship, of new romance, of family bonds. And it's all through the lens of intrusive thinking. There is clever use of technology and pop culture (Star Wars fan fiction about a Rey-Chewbacca relationship). I enjoyed the book.

From the publisher:
Sixteen-year-old Aza never intended to pursue the mystery of fugitive billionaire Russell Pickett, but there’s a hundred-thousand-dollar reward at stake and her Best and Most Fearless Friend, Daisy, is eager to investigate. So together, they navigate the short distance and broad divides that separate them from Russell Pickett’s son, Davis.

Aza is trying. She is trying to be a good daughter, a good friend, a good student, and maybe even a good detective, while also living within the ever-tightening spiral of her own thoughts.
