Review: Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon

What an incredible book! I don’t know if I’ve said this yet about any book read in 2017, but this one kept me engaged and awake {WAY} past my bedtime from start to finish. I don’t usually try to immediately jump on the “book-to-movie-must-read-the-book-before-the-movie-comes-out” bandwagon, but I’m glad I did with this one.

In Everything, Everything I was introduced to Madeline. She has been confined to her home for the last eighteen years because of a rare health condition. She’s the girl in the plastic bubble, only the bubble is her home! She has online tutors, unlimited reading material, a mom, a personal nurse to care for her, she’s overall a normal girl.

Or so she thought.

Until a family moves in to the house across the street does Madeline realize how much she was missing.

I really enjoyed the way the story was broken up: short chapters, long ones, little excerpts, emails, dictionary definitions. They all made the story read very quickly, but also it was just exciting! A girl who tries to redefine herself. A girl who never thought she could be normal. A girl meets a boy. A girl and the change of the relationships around her because she has finally figured herself out.

And how awesome is that ending!? I won’t ruin it for those of you who haven’t read it, but just so you know — it’s pretty neat 🙂

Side note: once the movie has been released, I hope to do a comparative review to see whether or not the director stuck to anything {remotely} similar to the book.
