Title : Everything Everything
Author : Nicola Yoon
Genre : YA Fiction
Publisher : Penguin
This story is about the journey of Madeline Whittier, a teenager, who is suffering from Severe Combined Immunodeficiency (SCID), a rare disease, which restricts the victim to stay indoors.
Due to this disease, Maddy has been living in her house, oblivious and unexposed to the outer world.
Maddy was used to living this monotonous life where she had no friends, but just her mother and a nurse, Carla. She never had any complaints with her life, until she sees Olly, her new neighbour.
Just after he arrives in her neighbourhood, pretty soon a strong bond of connection develops between the two, which later turns into a bond of unconditional love.
Then comes a decision time for Maddy, whether to risk her life for love or spend her remaining life in a bubble.
My Review :
Though YA is not the genre I prefer, but still I read it on the recommendation of one of my friends. Initially the story had shown a very innocent bond of love between Olly and Maddy but later the plot weakened. Though the climax was unpredictable but I wasn’t convinced with it and I just could not connect with the story. If you are a hardcore fan of YA fiction than you could read this book or else you can skip this book.
