For my first March book review, I bring to you Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon. I discovered this book when the movie trailer totally blew up in popularity on FaceBook. After watching the movie trailer (and vowing to go see the movie when it hits the theaters) I decided that reading the book before seeing the movie was a must.
This novel follows the premise of a teenager, Maddy, who is allergic to everything. Her allergies are triggered randomly if she goes outside, so she’s been locked inside of an air-sealed house for most of her life.
Her normal life is brought excitement when a family moves in across the street. The teenage son, Olly is able to get his email address to Maddy by writing it on his window, and the rest is history.
This is a beautiful story about trust and why you should take risks. Yes, this book did make me tear up a little, but I feel like those are the best stories.
I got a vibe of ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ in this book by the way the characters interacted with one another. (Speaking of which I LOVE that book).
I really appreciated the theme in this novel, and how the author was able to tie it in. Combining a cute love story with actual real life meaning is all I live for!
I know that movies aren’t usually as good as their books, but after seeing the trailer I couldn’t resist!! Hopefully the movie is as good as the book, but if not I understand. The actors & actresses that were cast for the film look just about exactly as I pictured them, except for the mother.
If you’ve got a spare minute, pick up this book!! It’s an excellent read for high school age and up. It is a little pricey for an e-book, but I did relinquish the funds willingly and I don’t regret it.
If you’re one who likes a good book bargain stay tuned for my next book review!!
