Cover image and summary from Goodreads:

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 was a book club pick and I was really excited about it. I’ve been wanting to read this one for so long!

Everything, Everything was a really good, really quick read. I loved the way the book incorporated Maddie’s writings and drawings, and I was really pleased that they worked so well in my e-book, because in the past I’ve read e-books where the images didn’t work or appear properly.

Maddie’s story was really sad and kind of heartbreaking, but also full of humour, hope, and optimism. And I really liked the romance with Olly, the boy next door.

There was a pretty big revelation at one point in the story, and I wish it had been explored more in-depth. The end of the book also felt rushed.

Overall though, this was a great book, and I’m really looking forward to reading more from Nicola Yoon!
