Everything, Everything Review...

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.



This book is the book that pulled me out of my last reading rut.  The reading of this book came about when I was watching the previews before Beauty and the Beast.  The preview for this movie came on and once the movie was over I went around the corner and bought the book.
I can tell you that it is an extremely quick read and it has some pretty fun illustrations in it.  The story follows a girl who has never left her house because she was told that going outside would kill her.  Then a new family moves in next door and everything starts to change for her.  She decides that she would take a chance and leave the house just to see what she was missing.  There is a little bit of love story, a little bit of rebellion and a little bit of overprotective parenting in this book.
I absolutely loved the different random pictures and such throughout this book.  It was a fun way to interact more with this book.  The story itself was good and that ending was mind blowing.  I didn’t see that coming and was excited to read it.  Like I said before this book brought me out of my reading funk a few months back and I can honestly say that I can’t wait to read more books by this author.  She has woven an amazing story that I didn’t want to put down.  Loved every second of this book!
5 stars
