“Life is a Gift, Don’t Forget to Live it”
Madeleine is basically allergic to everything. She has a rare disease know as SKID and for the past seventeen years she has been confined to her house with only her mom and her nurse. Everything is white and the air is filtered. She has routine health checks through the day. Everything changes when a cute boy moves in next door and they strike a friendship via email.
“Maybe we can’t predict the future, but we can predict some things. For example, I amcertainly going to fall in love with Olly. It’s almost certainly going to be a disaster.”
Everything, Everything is Nicola Yoon’s first book which she wrote beautifully with a unique story layout that includes Madeleine’s diary entries, illustrations, list, emails and test. It is a story about romance, fear, taking chances, and living life. The plot is very intriguing and touches on depression and mental illness. Madeleine is a smart and curious girl and I loved going on the journey with her as she experiences life, love and all the butterflies that come with it. Yes there is “insta-romance” involved which I know some readers take issue with, but not me! I love it and come on I think “insta-romance” is very appropriate story line for teenage characters. Falling fast is part if being a teenager. This book was a quick read that I could not put down. I had to know what would happen to Madeleine and I would get lost in her emotions as she fell in love with Olly, and discovered the world. I can’t wait to see what everyone else thinks of this books and to see what Nicola Yoon writes next!
I give this book a 4.5 of 5. It was wonderfully written and a quick read. I felt it ended quickly and I wanted more!!!
I recieved an ARC of this book for my honest review. Have you reviewed it also? I would love to record a Hanging Out with Books with you.
