Synopsis: My disease is as rare as it is famous. Basically, I’m allergic to the world. I don’t leave my house, have not left my house in seventeen years. The only people I ever see are my mom and my nurse, Carla.
But then one day, a moving truck arrives next door. I look out my window, and I see him. He’s tall, lean and wearing all black—black T-shirt, black jeans, black sneakers, and a black knit cap that covers his hair completely. He catches me looking and stares at me. I stare right back. His name is Olly.
Maybe we can’t predict the future, but we can predict some things. For example, I am certainly going to fall in love with Olly. It’s almost certainly going to be a disaster.
My Thoughts: There’s a lot of hype surrounding this book, and it I think it is well deserved! I’ve heard so many great things about it, and let me tell you, it does not disappoint. Once I picked up Everything, Everything, it was hard to put down. It is an amazing book! I am OBSESSED!
I know I’ve been saying this a lot lately but, this book is one of the best I’ve read this year! It is easily on my Top 5 List. It has a one of the most original concepts that I’ve read so far in YA books. I’ve been waiting to read something like this, for a long time!
The story has a smooth pace, that is easy to follow. There was no skipping around, and I was never bored. I didn’t find any of the character to be annoying, which is weird/surprising because usually there’s at least one person per book that REALLY gets on my nerves. It’s wasn’t overly cheesy (Thank God!). Everything was just right…Well…the only thing that I didn’t really like was how there weren’t more characters. Then again, that goes with the story, seeing as she couldn’t leave her house and all.
I don’t know if it’s just me or what, but by the end of this book I was in tears! I feel bad for Madeline’s mom, but she needs to get herself some help and QUICK! Even though I figured out what was going to happen in the end, I still found it to be perfect. It was beautifully done.
I don’t want to give too much away! I NEED A PHYSICAL COPY!!!!
I believe I have just found my new favorite book! Nicole Yoon is on her ‘A’ Game and I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next! Everyone NEEDS to read this book! I gave Everything, Everything 5 Stars!
