Book Review: Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon

Goodreads Summary: 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.

I loved this book! It was beautiful, innocent, and a life adventure. Maddy suffers from SCID meaning she is highly allergic to everything. She basically can't leave the house for anything because it could be fatal to her. Her Mother is the only constant in her life after her father and brother died in a tragic accident. With a strong fear of losing Maddy, her mom is very protective of her. Then a family moves next door and a guy named Ollie gets her attention and things take off from there.

I read this book on one sitting. I really wanted to see how this would turn out and end considering the idea of the story. I couldn't imagine my life to the level of confinement that Maddy experienced at all whatsoever. I didn't to much care for the instalove and I kind of knew that it would happen before going into this book so that didn't really judge my review. 

I loved Olly. He was so foreign to Maddy and something new in her life. He was patient and understanding. He was funny at times as well. He also had things that he was suffering from and that broke my heart for him as well.

The story continued to unfold into something about living life to full extent. No matter how big or small that may be do what makes you happy. I wanted that for Maddy and Olly. Especially for Maddy. I can't go into to much without giving away spoilers.

The ending....I would have to say, and I hope this make sense, that it ended great and then not so great. If you read the book then you would know about her rewards for if she was to lose one of her books. That is all I'm going to say about that part without giving it away.
