Book Review- Everything, Everything.
Everything, Everything was one of those pretty books I’ve had sitting on my shelf for a while and never got round to reading. Then the trailer for the film adaptation, which looks amazing by the way, turned up on my Facebook feed and I knew I had to read the book before the film comes out. As with all good stories, I couldn’t put this book down and read it in one sitting.
Without saying too many spoilers, the story follows 16 year-old Maddy, a girl who is allergic to, well, everything. Sadly, this means that she can never leave her house. When the charming Olly moves next door, suddenly her life because more complicated than ever before as the two youngsters begin to fall in love. The story sent me through every single emotion; happiness, relief, sadness, heartbreak and everything in between. I definitely felt like I was walking Maddy’s journey with her rather than watching from the side lines which I loved.
I adored both Maddy and Olly in this book. I loved Maddy’s curiosity and desire for adventure and I loved Olly’s caring nature. You can really see Maddy’s personal growth in this novel, which is perfectly symbolised by her starting to wear coloured clothes!
This is the perfect book for anyone who is looking for a cute romance novel. There are some dark and unexpected twists twists along the way that keeps you on your toes but never strays too far away from its simplistic romance. A 4.5/5 for me.
