Risk everything . . . for love with this #1 New York Times bestseller.
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.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Everything, Everything takes the biggest, scariest, most relatable parts of being a teenager and turns them up to 11. Maddy Whittier has a rare and serious autoimmune disease that more or less leaves her allergic to...everything. She’s totally isolated, living at home in an almost literal bubble with her mom looking after her every need. Then a brand new family moves in next door, complete with a hot teenage boy named Olly, and it’s love at first sight. Superstar audiobook narrator Bahni Turpin’s stellar performance made us feel all the emotions of Maddy’s incredible story, from new-love butterflies to frustrated rage to abject confusion. Fans of The Fault in Our Stars and All the Bright Places will love this listen’s sweet message about the universal desire to reach out and forge connections. This moving story will leave you inspired—and its jaw-dropping twist will leave you reeling.
Great Book, Okay Narration
The book is great! The story is so good, very heartfelt. The voice of the narrator is nice, but the one thing I find throws the story off is how a male voice is used for the IM messages but not for the narration of Ollie’s character. It would be better if they used the same voice for the male character throughout and not just for one section. Apart from that, great story and clear narration. I would recommend!
