Everything, Everything sounded like an amazing book for me. This book is about a girl named Madeline who has a disease known as SCID. So she’s allergic to everything, and she’s actually happy in the small world that she’s built for herself, until a boy named Olly moves in next door.
This book was actually a five out of five stars until I got to the end. And the whole “plot twist” that happened kind of ruined the book for me. I mean, considering people that have got SCID, I’m pretty sure that if they read this book as well, they’d be pretty mad. The plot twist was just a convenient way for the story to keep on moving without any issues.
Obviously, since this story was romance based, I guess it wasn’t that bad. But still, the romance cannot be as convenient as it was in this book.
Other than that, I had a lot of fun with a whole lot of other things! Madeline was a great character to read about, and I think that anything that she got to do was pretty neat! There were the amazing illustrations, and the style was so simple and suited the theme of the book!
I think the writing was easy to follow, and this book was an incredibly fast read. I finished it in (I think) a day or two? The chapters were pretty short, and there were different ways that the story was told in! There were text messages, emails, online chats, even sometimes writing on the window! It was pretty neat.
Overall, Everything, Everything starts out pretty strong, and could’ve been an amazing book if it wouldn’t have been for the plot twist that was just hugely convenient. I think that the premise was quite different, but still. The execution was kind of disappointing towards the end.
Thanks for reading my review, and I hope you all have a great day! Until next time!
