Everything, Everything (Paperback)
Everyone seems to have heard of the boy in the bubble -- the boy who was allergic to everything. Well, meet Madeline Whittier -- a 17 year old who is confined to her hermetically sealed house, tended to by her physician mother and companion nurse Carla. Maddie takes online classes and reads brand new, sanitized books (second-hand books are full of other people's germs). She and her mother are best friends, playing phonetic Scrabble and honor Pictionary, watching movies and telling each other everything.
That is how life has been for as long as she remembers, and Maddie figures that's how it will be for the foreseeable future. Enter the family who moves in next door: a father who seems to be 'way too fond of the bottle', a meek mother, a young girl and a -- whoa!, absolutely gorgeous guy who looks about Maddie's age. Hmmmm!
This fabulous book catches you from the very beginning, and you'll be sorry when it ends. Just when you think all the books about sick teens have been written, you get surprised -- over and over again. Really surprised! What a treat! I LOVED this one!!! -- Jocelyn, Children's bookselling specialist
Everything, Everything is a masterpiece. Beautifully written and it makes you believe that the sky is the limit. It makes you want to experience love, hope and everything in between.— Rachel, Tattered Cover Teen Advisory Board member
The instant #1 New York Times bestseller--now a major motion picture starring Amandla Stenberg as Maddy and Nick Robinson as Olly.
Risk everything . . . for love. 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. The movie is available on digital now
