Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon

 5/5 Stars

Maddy is allergic to the world. She cannot leave her house and her only visitors must go through many precautions to even step foot into her house. Then one day Olly moves in next door. Talking online slowly turns to friendship and maybe even love. But how can they be together when stepping outside would kill Maddy?

This book was perfect for me. It sort of reminded me of The Fault in Our Stars with how tragic and star-crossed it was but in other ways it was completely different. I really fell in love with the characters and I found Olly to be very selfless and caring for both his family and Maddy. I really, truly loved this book.

The story was so sweet but sad. Maddy could die if she ever somehow got sick but she still finds the courage to meet with Olly behind her mother's back and they become friends. My one complaint was that he didn't seem to be careful enough with germs or other outside things. They definitely were told to never touch but they still hold hands whenever they see each other and that kind of annoyed me. In some ways he went really overboard with keeping her safe though so I guess it can be overlooked.

I cannot stop gushing about this book! Honestly it was really perfect for me and would be a nice beach read if parts of it weren't so sad. I cannot wait for it to be released so everyone can enjoy it!!

The writing was very good and the plot moved very smoothly. It seemed to constantly have something happening so I never got bored. Overall it was a nice change from some of the books I haven't really been able to get into lately. I would strongly recommend buying it right away when it is released this September.
