Everything, Everything is a love story between a girl who can’t leave her home because the outside world may kill her and a boy named Olly who moves in next door. That is the simple version and it’s the truth, but this book has so much more. It’s about first love, taking chances and discovery.
Surprisingly Maddy is very well adjusted. I mean, if I could die at any moment and my mom and my nurse were my closest friends I would be glued to my window watching the world outside my bubble. Maddy seems to have come to grips with her situation. Until Olly moves in next door. I think what draws her to Olly was not his appearance, although he was cute, it was actually his circumstance. His father was an abusive drunk. When Maddy witnesses and hears that abuse I think it opens her eyes that other people’s lives may be worse than her own.
Olly was every teenage girls dream boyfriend. He was cute, mysterious and sensitive. I, too would have risked my safe world to embrace all sorts of harmful bacteria and live in the moment with him.
Everything, Everything was not just a lighthearted teenage romance. Because of Maddy’s dangerous disease, every move she made was wrought with tension and even though you rooted for her to have a moment of happiness you hoped it wouldn’t kill her and that gave this romance an edge. There was a HUGE twist at the end of this book that added another dimension to the emotion in this story that you should not miss. ❤❤❤❤
