Book Review For Everything, Everything
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 gave this 4 stars
I was expecting this book to be heartbreaking and sad, and I was prepared for that, but it wasn’t at all. I felt happy, shocked and surprisingly content listening to this book, even if it was from Maddie’s point of view, she has such a warm outlook on life.
Why I Enjoyed This Read
There were a few added bits in the book that wasn’t included in the film, and I felt like they were needed, to make the story fit nicely all together. I was so not expected the plot storyline to turn out how it did, you will be shocked by the outcome too I think, as it’s not your usual sick girl falling in love storyline plot.
Who Would Enjoy This Read
Anyone looking for a cute, unique contemporary romance book would love this one.
I loved the connection between Maddie and Olly because Maddie needed that without realizing and it was beautiful to watch the relationship grow under the circumstances.
