This innovative, heartfelt debut novel tells the story of a girl who’s literally allergic to the outside world. When a new family moves in next door, she begins a complicated romance that challenges everything she’s ever known. The narrative unfolds via vignettes, diary entries, texts, charts, lists, illustrations, and more.
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.
Everything Everything is a story of a girl named Madeline and her rare disease called SCID wherein she is allergic to everything that she’s not allowed to go outside and when someone’s going to visit her, he or she needs to undergo this decontamination when entering their house. Mostly, the people who can always visit or be with her are of course her mother and her nurse named Carla.
Maddy loves to read books because their she picture out what the outside world looks like.
Maddy and her mother always play some night games that serves as their bonding.
One day a family moves in next door and there she met Olly. He is the male protagonist of the story. He’s cute, very understanding and protective for the ones he loves.
Madeline was such a great character and I love her. For me, she is a very relatable character that you can easily grasp or like relate to.
What I love on this book is the messaging parts because they are so cute and very adorable that I couldn’t help myself smiling and chuckling.
This book was fantastic. I love the world building of it plus for me the title and the cover really suits the book, it’s simple yet attractive.
Nicola Yoon did an excellent job on writing this book. The dialogue was captivating, her writing style was superb and it’s so fascinating that I can’t put it down.
Everything Everything was one of my favorite books that I read so far this year and it really deserve a 5 star rating. This book is extremely engaging so I recommend this to all of you! <3
