Risk everything . . . for love.

What if you couldn’t touch anything in the outside world? Never breathe in the fresh air, feel the sun warm your face . . . or kiss the boy next door? In Everything, Everything, Maddy is a girl who’s literally allergic to the outside world, and Olly is the boy who moves in next door . . . and becomes the greatest risk she’s ever taken.

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.

Everything, Everything will make you laugh, cry, and feel everything in between. It's an innovative,  inspiring, and heartbreakingly romantic debut novel that unfolds via vignettes, diary entries, illustrations, and more.

And don’t miss Nicola Yoon's The Sun Is Also A Star, the #1 New York Times bestseller in which two teens are brought together just when it seems like the universe is sending them in opposite directions.

My Review:
I had so many emotions reading this book that I’m not sure where to begin. I haven’t read a book that has had me so emotionally attached since reading “The Promise of Stardust” by Priscille Sibley. Everything Everything is beautifully written and if I didn’t have to work all weekend I would’ve had this book done in one night! With this book, I decided to purchase a physical copy and listen to it via Audible. I know I took more from this book by doing that then any Audible book yet.

When I finally finished Everything Everything I was all sorts of emotions. I can’t imagine a mother doing that to her child. Keeping Maddy locked up for so long and then expecting her to stay confined is unreal. I’m so happy that she flew to New York to surprise Olly. I probably would have done the same thing.

Bahni and Robbie did a phenomenal job at narrating the story. The way they could capture and express the emotions of each character was unbelievable. I loved how there was more than one narrator as well, because all the audiobooks that I’ve read thus far have had only one. Bahni and Robbie you did an amazing job!

If I could give this ten stars I would but Everything Everything definitely gets a five star rating from me.
