This is a SPOILER BOOK REVIEW if you’re wondering. So if you don’t like it, at least give these one a love before closing your tab or Firefox and/or Chrome window. Let’s see what the GoodReads says about Everything, Everything below. I’m talking about book description, of course. Take a look below!
Title : Everything, Everything
Author : Nicola Yoon
Edition : Paperback
Pages : 310
GR Rating : 4.12
Published September 3rd 2015 by Corgi Childrens
Madeline Whittier is allergic to the outside world. So allergic, in fact, that she has never left the house in all of her seventeen years. But when Olly moves in next door, and wants to talk to Maddie, tiny holes start to appear in the protective bubble her mother has built around her. Olly writes his IM address on a piece of paper, shows it at her window, and suddenly, a door opens. But does Maddie dare to step outside her comfort zone?
Everything, Everything is about the thrill and heartbreak that happens when we break out of our shell to do crazy, sometimes death-defying things for love.
My rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
“Sometimes you do things for the right reasons and sometimes for the wrong ones and sometimes it’s impossible to tell the difference.”
– pg. 174 Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon
I totally loved the book and still does. This one is my very first read of Nicola Yoon’s work and has taken a place on my favorite reading list in 2017. When I bought it, I didn’t expect that the book would be very wonderful. I mean the story-plot, the characters, and the way Nicola’s writing.
Speaking of characters, there are only two character which you will find in the entire book, Maddy and Olly. If you have read the blurb on the back, you definitely know that Maddy is ‘claimed’ to have a very rare disease that makes her to stay home twenty four-seven. But her life changes when she hears a moving trucks in her neighbourhood, turns out it is Olly.
She always writes an update about Olly’s family’s daily activities a few times. She also tries to make contact with Olly, until they get closer to an IM and email. They two send each other messages back and forth, until one day Maddy asks Olly to come over. But surely, Olly has to do some treatments first to enter Maddy’s place to keep it clean. And nothing interesting happens here. But the story is still so cute. Aww!!
A few chapters later, Maddy gets away from her house, moving to Hawaii with Olly. Not really moving, just wandering around. Until she gets sick and is told by her mother that she really is sick. I don’t quite remember what it is called, but it’s such a rare disease. Of course, she finally finds out that those all are only made up by her sick mother. Some people say that her mother hasn’t moved on from the death of her husband and son aka Maddy’s brother. Maddy meets Olly and they get more closer than ever.
If you haven’t read the book yet. You must read it bacause there are a lots of pictures and illustrations here and there. Once the book is in your hand, I believe you don’t want to put it down, ever. It’s truly beautiful book. I’m planning on reading another Nicola’s works sometimes soon. If you want to find out more about Everything, Everything. You need to check it yourself. –
“OLLY’S MATH SAYS you can’t predict the future. It turns out that you can’t predict the past either. Time moves in both directions –forward and backward- and what happens here and now changes them both.”
