Everything Everything – Nicola Yoon

everything-everything

Maddie is allergic to everything in this complex Young Adult Novel – a bubble girl so sick she can’t leave the sterile environment her mother has created at home. The only other person allowed inside is Carla, the nurse. At seventeen, Maggie has accepted her fate, until a moving van pulls into the driveway next door. From her window, she sees a guy her age dressed all in black. Maddie knows she’s going to find a way to meet him, just as she knows it isn’t going to end well. Soon enough, she’s furtively messaging Olly. Then she convinces Carla to let him in the house. When her mom finds out, she brings the hammer down firing Carla and putting Maddie on restriction. Maddie has to decide if living is worthwhile given her condition, or if she’d rather throw her life away for a brief taste of normal with Olly on the outside. This is an excellent, well-written book, good enough to get a major push from Random House Teens.

  1. I just adored this book! I was so upset when it ended. I wanted to know what happened next! Did Maddie an Olly work out? What happened to Maddie’s mom?!?

    Glad to hear that you liked it. Nicola Yoon has just released another book. I haven’t read it yet, but I really want to!

  2. I got a readers advanced copy of the book and it’s been sitting on my night stand for over a year. I could have kicked myself for not getting to it sooner. I’ll have to check out her new one. Thanks for the heads up!
