About Everything, Everything
Maddy is has been sick her whole life. She is so sick that she can’t leave her house. She suffers from severe combined immunodeficiency(SCID), a disease which weakens the immune system. And she is okay with that. She has her mom and Carla, her nurse. One day Olly is moving in next doors with his family and that changes everything.
Suddenly Maddy is aware of what she is missing. She wants to start living, she wants to take risks, because she loves him so much. Since the moment she met Olly, her life has changed a lot. Her mother doesn’t like this relationship and she tries everything to keep Maddy away from this boy.
I love this book. I’ve also seen the movie and loved the movie too, even though there were some things different. A beautiful love story about Maddy and Olly. Carla, her nurse, and her mother are saying that this relationship is not an option. They are saying this because Maddy is sick and can’t leave the house. Olly is also dealing with his own problems: his father is an alcoholic and is violent.
Another thing I love about this book are the illustrations. They are made by the husband (David Yoon) of Nicola, the writer. Those illustrations are definitely making this book even better if that was possible. I really enjoyed reading this book. It is cute and it has a plot twist. And to be honest, I did not see it coming. Most of the time I see things coming unless the book is very well-written. Never expected this plot twist. And I kind of want a second book about Maddy and Olly and their adventures.
It is an easy read, perfect for a sunny day or when you are in the mood for a contemporary book.
