Everything, Everything

Reviewed by:

Seventeen year old Madeline Whittier doesn’t remember ever leaving her house. She has stayed inside, safe from all the viruses and allergens that could quickly result in her death. Her life lines are her mom and her nurse. She is relatively happy and is secure in who she is and doesn’t let her illness define her.
Life changes the day a moving van pulls up next door and brings with it seventeen year old Olly, a dark clad boy to whom Maddy is instantly drawn. He opens up to her a world that she has stopped short of imagining.
This is a book for your fans of romance and mystery.  It was hard not to fall in love with both Olly and Madeline.
 
“In her debut, Jamaican-American Yoon gives readers complex characters and rich dialogue that ranges from humorous to philosophical. This heartwarming story transcends the ordinary by exploring the hopes, dreams, and inherent risks of love in all of its forms.” —Kirkus Reviews
