Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon
This is a teen romance novel. The story follows Madeline Whittier, a teen who has SCID or Severe Combined Immunodeficiency, which makes it so she cannot leave the house. Because of her disease she doesn’t have very many friends. Her friends include her mother and her nurse Carla, until a moving truck pulls up in front of her house. That is the moment that Madeline’s life changes forever.
I read Everything, Everything about 2 years ago and I have been rereading it ever since. The two main characters, Madeline and Olly, are extremely interesting in their own ways. Olly only dresses in black and doesn’t have friends, while Madeline has this unheard-of disease that traps her inside. The author does a great job of understanding the teen brain and how sometimes our hearts make our decisions. This book is recommended for anyone who is a hopeless romantic.
