Title: Everything, Everything
Author: Nicola Yoon
Best For: Eighth grade and up
Madeline, the main character, basically lives in a bubble. Having a rare auto-immune disease, she is forced to stay inside the comfort and safety of her own home. She rarely has visitors and when she does, they must go through a strict sanitizing process prior to entering Maddy’s purified world, which she has been fine with – that is, until she spies her new neighbor, Olly.
Maddy and Olly begin chatting online and a friendship evolves. Maddy finds a hunger for exploring the outside world that she didn’t know existed prior to meeting Olly.
Everything, Everything is a sweet story of the power of love and loss.
Bottom Line:Read the book, then see the movie when it comes out on May 19.
