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 saw the movie trailer and I knew I HAD to give the book a go! And here we go lol
The story’s start was slow ( I almost gave up reading honestly..) but the more you carry towards the half, the better it gets.
There are cute little drawings that I liked! And there are book spoilers..woopsie.
Madeline, The main character, is biracial girl (African-American/Japanese) who has a disease that doesn’t allow her to go out leaving her house..she’s basically allergic to the world. The only human contact she ever has is with her mother and her nurse.
When the new neighbours move in, she gets to know Olly through emails and she ends up falling in love.
Olly, (or Angel of Death as Maddie called him lol) respective and was always looking out for Maddie’s best interests and attentive to her needs.
Maddie’s mom was a bit too controlling I thought, meanwhile Carla (Madeline’s nurse) was understanding, nice, positive, and encouraging.
Some chapters in the story were short, the picture was the chapter at some cases. The ending was sorta open which I honestly don’t know what to feel about it..
Overall, Everything, Everything was quick read and I’m glad I got it off my list.
“Love is worth everything. Everything.”
Have you read the book / seen the movie trailer? What do you think?
