Book Review: Everything, Everything

Author: Nicola Yoon

‘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 loved the way this book was written, with the illustrations and everything (ha!). It was a pretty quick and easy read, also the cover of the book is pretty yes? 😀  It has a predictable, roll-your-eyes aspect to it (it’s YA) and the conclusion was a bit rushed in my opinion, I felt like there was so much more explaining to do. But all in all it was an enjoyable read. Made me appreciate the simple fact that I can leave the house and breathe outside air any time I feel like it because SCID is actually a real disease.
Also the word humuhumunukunukuapuaa is stuck in my head o.O
