"Everything, Everything is everything, everything – powerful, lovely, heart-wrenching, and so absorbing I devoured it in one sitting. It’s a wonder. The rare novel that lifts and shatters and fills you all at once" (Jennifer Niven, author of ALL THE BRIGHT PLACES)
"This extraordinary first novel about love so strong it might kill us is too good to feel like a debut. Tender, creative, beautifully written, and with a great twist, Everything, Everything is one of the best books I’ve read this year" (Jodi Picoult)
"With offbeat, pragmatic and sweetly romantic characters and an unconventional narrative style . . . “Everything, Everything” tells us something we will always need to hear, no matter our age: that it’s not the risks of love or heartbreak that might end us. It’s the fear of the pain we might experience along the way that keeps us trapped in our cocoons" (New York Times)
"Fresh, moving debut . . . far more complex than the sweet tale of first love it initially seems to be" (Entertainment Weekly)
"This heartwarming story transcends the ordinary by exploring the hopes, dreams, and inherent risks of love in all of its forms" (Kirkus Starred Review)
Soon to be a major film starring Amandla Stenberg and Nick Robinson, get ready to risk everything, everything for love with Maddy, the girl who lived in a bubble, and Olly – the boy next door . . .See all Product description

When a new family move in next door though she's instantly drawn to the mysterious looking teenage boy who stares up directly at her. Olly's arrival makes Madeline question everything about life and what she thought she wanted. She becomes brave, secretive and most importantly, really begins being herself when they get to know each other online. With instant messenger type websites being such a big deal now I liked seeing how it was used in this book. I began talking to my now husband online so I could really relate with how Madeline and Olly got to know one another.
One of the main themes in Everything, Everything is friendships. Madeline has a very close relationship with her nurse Carla and it was such a sweet thing to read about. Obviously not being able to leave the house means not having any friends her own age so Carla was the next best thing. Then there is also Madeline and her mother who are extremely close. It was nice to see a teenage character really enjoy spending time with her mum even if it was forced due to circumstances.
The friendship between Madeline and Olly was fantastic.Read more ›
I finished this book a few hours ago and the review was writing itself in my head but now that I’m supposed to type it, I can’t.
This book follows a girl called Maddy who is allergic to the world and everything. She hasn’t stepped foot outside the house in 17 years. She’s lived a simple, basic and a routine life until a new family moves in next door and she meets Olly.
Maddy goes on this journey of self discovery, she’s learning about the world and meeting Olly is an entirely new experience. This book is beautifully written and thought out. I read it with ease especially since I’m very picky about contemporaries. It’s got to be done well for me to enjoy a YA contemporary because there’s either heavy triggering topics, teens way too wise to be believable and the vague endings giving me no closure.
But with Everything, Everything, even though it had some of those elements; I loved it so much because Maddy was so curious. Her condition was constant but she had wanderlust and Olly opened up a new world for her she’d never experienced. It had the perfect components for me to thoroughly enjoy this book and the romance in this was so lovely, wild and heartbreaking.
Nicola Yoon’s stories intrigue me with one line. After watching countless BEA videos, someone said her new book, The Sun is Also a Star is about a girl who falls in love with a boy the day she’s going to be deported back to Jamaica. I mean, that pulled me in right away. It just took one line and I was adding it to my wishlist. I need to read this book as soon as it’s out!
I don’t know what determines I’ll like a contemporary but Nicola Yoon nailed it and this book blew me away. It’s beautiful, new and a wondrous read.Read more ›
An easy read with great lovable characters.
How the story plays out just completely blew me away.
I can't wait for the movie!!!!
Everything, Everything is a book about "Bubble Girl". A girl with SCID - Severe combined Immunodeficiency. Essentially Madeline Whittier is the most allergic human being imaginable. So much so that she can't leave her home which is effectively bubble wrapped with a fancy air filtration system to boot. Can you imagine how lonely that must be? Or would you not realise it's lonely because you've never experienced what it is that you're missing? Food for thought.
And that's ostensibly what this book offered me - SO much food for thought. I was enamoured by Madeline. Her voice sucked me in from the first page; and that's something I really REALLY need to fall in love with a character. She's witty, incredibly intelligent, slightly too literal, funny and has a perfect level of maturity and acceptance towards her condition - I hate when we get a mournful character who, admittedly has an unfortunate hand in life, but just won't shut up about it. Madeline is the opposite and I love her.
So when Olly moves in across the road with his slightly (okay, hugely) dysfunctional family, my romance radar went off. Don't get me wrong, I like romance, but it has to be the subtle kind. I can't deal with the "Insta-Love" of the YA genre right now. Yuck. Unfortunately this story smacks of instalove. BUT, here's the thing. I feel like it sort of had to, because Madeline has no human contact minus her mother and her nurse.Read more ›
