One of the best books I've read in a while! I love the plot, the characters, and especially the plot twist near the end. I also liked how Maddy reacted to being in love– it was so relateable, and I fell in love with Ollie too! This book will take your heart, rip it apart, patch it back together, and just keep repeating that. Everyone should read this book!!!

In the book, Madeline Whittier is diagnosed with SCID, the famous “bubble baby disease,” essentially trapping her inside her house. White everything, a ton of extra time, and no dust in sight-- that is until a promising friendship (and perhaps more) with the cute boy next door changes everything. I won't live the cover art is what drew me in, it is beautiful and doesn't stop at the cover. This book is filled with extra tidbits and doodles. The premise seemed simple to me, a girl is allergic to everything and must remain in her air-locked house. Sad? Sure, who wouldn't hate never leaving the house? Interesting? Yes, because who doesn't want to see how another person lives? Anyways...The book has elements to root for: diverse characters, unique formatting, and a lot of painstaking love that is absolutely fantastic (and real). It was a fast read due to the formatting and the fact that you get swept up in the novel (I finished in a few hours). Then, the ending... I don't want to give too much away but I was caught off guard. It is easy to see what an amazing storyteller Nicola Yoon is and personally I can't wait to read more of her work. Drawbacks for me- I would have liked the ending to have more of a dramatic flare. But that's more of a personal thing. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for something that is adorable and funny as well as a little heartache.

I would definitely reccomend this book! It may be boring in the beginning, but it accelerates and becomes way more interesting. The entire time the emotions are clear and strong, making the reader feel them and want to root for her. The romance is great, not cheesy, too much contact, or just-friendly. It was a little rushed in the beginning, but I found it easy to disregard that. It's just right for me, righ in between G-rated and explicit. Love's attributes and pains are raw and expressive. Ollly also experiences hardships with and abusive father, and told from the point of view of the next-door neighbor, those events are every bit as real as the rest. The illustrations are great too. Excitement and fear lace the wonderful concoction as well when Olly's in some compromising circumstances and when Maddy almost dies because of her alllergy to random things (Severe Combined Immunodeficiency [SCID]). Your heart aches, races, flutters, and whatever else for the characters every step of the way through every powerful, meaningful event in the story. <p> Overall, the message this book delivers is stated on the cover: "The greatest risk is not taking one." Madeline had to take huge risks and challenge everything she knew to get to where she does at the end. I'm not going to spoil it for you; you have to read this book! So I may have lied a little to preserve the epicness. It's my new favorite. <p> ~&ETH&alpha&#1103&kappa &diams &#167&#1106i&eta&epsilon

This book lived up to the hype. It's adorable and funny, and I was routing for Madeline and Olly right from the start. Madeline has that disease where she is allergic to everything, so she lives in a bubble - luckily her whole house and not just a single room. She's never had friends other than her mother and her nurse, Carla. When Olly and his family move in next door, she becomes kind of obsessed with watching him, and then they strike up a friendship via the Internet. This book is filled with beautiful artwork and other fun things besides traditional writing, so you need to read the print version (paper or electronic). I'm glad I didn't try audio because I would have missed all of these extra tidbits. I love that Yoon jumps right into the plot with this book. There is no long exposition. The character development comes organically as things happen. The book is written from Madeline's point of view, but the reader gets to know Olly fairly well also. They are both complex characters with strong emotions. The friendship and romance is sincere and deep. I thoroughly enjoyed their story. http://www.momsradius.com/2016/06/book-review-everything-everything-ya.html

Snuggled on a couch with a fuzzy cozy blanket, I devoured Nicola Yoon’s Everything, Everything in one sitting. There were other people in the room beckoning me to join in the social gathering. I tried to put the book down several times and kept failing. Diagnosed with SCID, the famous “bubble baby disease,” Madeline Whittier is essentially trapped inside her house. Until a burgeoning friendship—and more—with the cute boy next door changes everything. I wasn’t very drawn by the premise—I’m not usually into contemporary romance-centered YA. Especially when they involve “boys that change everything.” Still, I thought I would like the book because it has elements I root for: diverse characters and a unique format (vignettes, messages, emails, post-its, etc). But I had no idea that I would fall into it and not emerge until I reached the last page, when I dazedly looked up and wondered where the last few hours had gone. There were heartbreaking parts and heartsoaring parts. All written deftly and lyrically. The author is so talented that the meh-premise (in my opinion) becomes extraordinary and unique. The adorableness was compounded by the extra adorable fact that the author’s husband did the illustrations. When the “twist” at the end happens, I was caught off guard. And at first, I thought it might be a cop-out deux ex machina move. But with the resolution, I revised that thought. Read this book if you want simple things spun into complex metaphors and emotions. Read this book if you want complex depths written about in a simple, unadorned way. Read this book if you want to feel. It’s been a couple of weeks since I flipped to the last page of Everything, Everything. And I’m still simmering in post-book blues. from mint & ink: https://mintandink.wordpress.com/2016/02/23/the-inkwell-everything-everything-by-nicola-yoon/

Everything, Everything is an unforgettable and unforgiving piece of literature that tears hearts as soon as they’re stitched back together. The book is the soul of everything romance and desire; it has the audience, particularly teens or hopeless-romantics, on the edge of their feet throughout the heartwarming story of two teens and their quest to share their love for each other in the most unexpected circumstances. Not to mention, the book has a very compelling format, as well as an overall plotline that makes it an irresistible read. Madeline Whittier, an eighteen-year-old girl, lives trapped inside her house. Maddy has Severe Combined Immunodeficiency, an extremely rare disease, in which she is allergic to the world. She has not left her house in seventeen years, so she spends most of her time and captures most of her happiness through books, and of course her mother. A tragedy that occurred in her childhood has left Maddy with only her mother at home, and also makes Maddy even more isolated. As one could imagine, the sight of new neighbors moving in excites her beyond what she’s known. To add to the wonder and curiosity of it all, the new-boy-next-door, Olly, has Maddy already falling at her heels. She’ll know sometime soon that he, too, has a love interest with her as well, although she keeps pushing everything she dreams about aside, as she knows there is no way she could ever have a future with him. Throughout brief encounters and emailing, Olly and Maddy connect in ways she never thought possible and throughout the book, Maddy has many new life experiences that force her to learn to balance the sometimes unbearable realities and the newfound joy from her love with Olly. The author, Nicola Yoon, did an outstanding job highlighting the importance of acceptance of life’s hardships and unforeseen challenges while displaying the detrimental, yet amazing effects love can have on someone. Nicola Yoon’s work will remain in all the hearts of its readers as a tear-jerking wonder and inspiration to go find joy somewhere in life, and risk-taking is entwined in all of every bit of it.

Everything, Everything is a cute contemporary about illness. Maddy grows as a character and learns more about herself when she meets Olly. She does become reckless, but after being sheltered for so long because of her illness it’s understandable that an 17-year-old would want to get out. I love Olly’s role in the book and I wish we got to have more scenes with him and his fun emails. The plot twists are good for the book. I was able to guess the one though. I did really enjoy the ending of this book. I’m happy that I finally read this book.

"Everything, Everything" follows Madeline, who lives in a bubble- she has a rare disease called SCID, which means she is severely immunocompromised and so she must stay in a protected space away from anything and everyone. Madeline loves to read but wishes she could see more of the world. When a boy moves in next door, she is drawn to him and he to her. They begin to chat over IM and then he comes to visit (they have a decontamination process to allow him inside). Olly is the next door neighbor. While most of the book focuses on Madeline, Olly is also dealing with some big things. His father is an alcoholic and abusive. He wishes his mother would leave him, but she is not yet able to do so. Olly immediately likes Madeline and a teenage romance quickly begins. Madeline, tired of her life inside, decides to risk everything, telling Olly she is taking an experimental drug and convincing him to go with her to Hawaii- a place she visited as an infant before her father and brother were killed in a car accident. Her world has been her mother, but she wants so much more from life, even if it might kill her. As the story evolves, we realize there is much more to what is going on than things first appear. There's a big twist in the book, and I wasn't sure how I felt about it. It seemed to be downplayed more than I would have anticipated such a big thing to be. This is not to say it isn't discussed, but it's a much bigger issue than I felt came across from the book. Overall, I wasn't sure how I felt about it- the writing is good and moves fast, but there is instalove plus some bigger issues (such as risking her life to take this trip, lying, plus the twist at the end). It's a quick read both in length and in terms of fast-paced plot, and I enjoyed the first parts of it, but am not sure if I feel the same by the end.

In the book Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon, Madeline risks everything for the new neighbor, Olly, whom she falls in love with. Madeline is allergic to anything and everything, so when Olly moves in across the street, she is significantly reminded of her illness and the severity of it. Being sick did not stop her though. This is a great book not just because of the cute romantic aspects of Madeline’s life, but because of its humor. “Me in love would be like being a food critic with no taste buds. It would be like being a color-blind painter” (Yoon 79). Madeline knows that since she is unable to go outside, falling in love is pointless. She passes her time by reading, taking online courses for school and “stalking” her new neighbors. She tries her best at everything she does and learns new things, and not just in school but in life. “‘Every day you get up and learn something new. Every day you find something to be happy about. Every single day you have a smile for me. You worry more about your mother than you do about yourself’” (Yoon 33). There is always something to be happy about. We have to appreciate the good in everyday, even if everyday is not a good day. In this book we learn that some things are worth the risk and it is important to remember that and live that out. “‘Everything’s a risk. Not doing anything is a risk, It’s up to you’” (Yoon 68). There is a lot you can learn from this book, not just how great it is but values in life. Live your life, take risks, and be happy. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves romance novels. You can find this book at any public library or online.

Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon is a story about an extremely smart and curious 18-year-old girl, named Maddy, who suffers from a rare disease and is stuck in her hermetically-sealed home. She isn’t allowed to leave or come in contact with anyone but her mother, doctor, and doctor’s friend. Maddy finds it hard to not be able to leave but one day a cute boy (Olly) moves in next door. Looking through a window and texting Olly creates a strong bond between them and Maddy struggles to stay inside and away from him. Maddy has to learn that taking chances could cost them everything. Nicola Yoon did a great job writing this book, it can be a good read for multiple people but it may be a better read for teens. I’d say the intended audience is teens only because it is through the point of view of a teen girl and what it is like to be young and in love but with a catch. Nicola does a great job showing how falling in love can be so easy and painful all at the same time. Maddy has to learn that sometimes the person you love the most can have the biggest effects on you and you don’t see it tell it’s too late. She starts out as an obedient child but slowly progresses into a rebel with secrets. Maddy struggles with all the secrets she is keeping from the people she loves the most and how to deal with them. Everything Everything is an easy read that I couldn’t put down, I’m not one for reading but with this book all I wanted to do was read. As I read I hoped that the story would never end and that there would be more on the next page. I believe that Nicola did an amazing job writing this book and I can’t wait to see what else she writes. I’d love to read her book The Sun Is Also A Star because if it is even half as good as Everything Everything then it will still be great. I’d recommend this book to everyone and anyone because it is just soooo good. It draws you and doesn’t let you go till you are done and the ending just comes by a surprise and makes me want to read even more to see what becomes of Maddy but it just ends. Everything Everything is a must-read for just about everyone! This story of love, acceptance, struggles, and hope is perfectly written that you will want to read it again and recommend it to everyone you see. There is a little something for everyone who reads it.

The book Everything Everything follows the everyday life of a girl with SCID. SCID, a deficiency in her immune system has dominated her life since she was diagnosed with it as a baby. With SCID, she is unable to leave her house; the result of going outside could be deadly. Her life was the same boring routine for years, but when a boy her age moves in next door things drastically change. She finds herself with someone to talk to and distract herself from not being able to leave her house. This is one of the best books I have ever read. The storyline never got boring, and I was always excited to read what would come next. This was definitely the type of book that keeps you up at night because you just can’t put it down. This story took a commonly-used point of view and made it seem so new and interesting. The book also has a shocking reveal towards the end of the book, which is definitely worth reading the book for. Besides having a storyline like no other, the imagery for this book was amazing. The author used such descriptive words, and it really made the whole book so much better. I was able to vividly picture everything that was happening in the book. One of my favorite parts of the book was the message. The story really shows you that you have to live like there is no tomorrow, and that everyday you have counts. The main character really put this philosophy into action throughout the book, when she makes major decisions that could mean life or death for her. Another of my favorite parts of the book was the characters. The main character was very interesting, and made the story fun and entertaining. Her new neighbor was calm and slightly-reserved, but loving and funny. These two characters were the perfect balance for each other. I enjoyed every second of watching their journey. I really have no complaints for this book. It was an all-around amazing novel, and I highly recommend reading it.

“Everything's a risk. Not doing anything is a risk. It's up to you.” Genre: Young Adult. Number of Pages: 307. Perspective: First. Location: LA, California. Madeleine has a serious and rare medical condition that prevents her from leaving her house. She never has a reason to leave until the boy next door teaches her that sometimes living life is worth the risk. I don’t have a lot to say about this book other than, I loved it. (And I gave it my Best Book Award). There were a few flaws, but I can overlook all of that because this book grabbed me and pulled me along for the ride. I seriously read this in one sitting. Most of the chapters were just a page or two and the book is filled with beautiful illustrations, so it is a very quick read. After dragging my brain through quite a few psychological thrillers lately, this was a lovely mental vacation. I caught myself smiling several times while reading this book. I also teared up a few times. To read the rest of my review, go here: http://judgingmorethanjustthecover.blogspot.com/2018/04/everything-everything-nicola-yoon.html
