about

My disease is as rare as it is famous. It's a form of Severe Combined Immunodeficiency, but basically, I'm allergic to the world. I don't leave my house, have not left my house in fifteen years. The only people I ever see are my mom and my nurse, Carla.
     But then one day, a moving truck arrives. New next door neighbors. I look out the 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. I want to learn everything about him, and I do. I learn that he is funny and fierce. I learn that his eyes are Atlantic Ocean-blue and that his vice is stealing silverware. I learn that when I talk to him, my whole world opens up, and I feel myself starting to change--starting to want things. To want out of my bubble. To want everything, everything the world has to offer.
     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.
NICOLA YOON grew up in Jamaica (the island) and Brooklyn (part of Long Island). She currently resides in Los Angeles, CA with her husband and their daughter, both of whom she loves beyond all reason. Everything, Everything is her first novel. DAVID YOON is a writer and designer. He lives with his wife Nicola Yoon in Los Angeles, CA, wh...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Quick Read This was a quick and simple book. I felt like some of it was a bit far-fetched, and a little predictable. But overall it was enjoyable.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not So Much Maybe 2.5 stars??? It wasn't terrible, and the first third of the book was wonderfully cute. The layout was fun and I was enjoying it. But I just did NOT like the way story progressed. Absolutely everything about the story was just TOO easy and I found myself rolling my eyes at it quite often. It continued to progress in unrealistic and easy ways and it frustrated me. I also wasn't a fan of the ending. Both the twist and the last chapter bothered me for many different reasons. The writing itself was good, and the characters were cute... but... just.... ugh. I might consider reading another book by this author in the future, depending on what it's about, but this one didn't do it for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing novel Overall all a very endearing book. The second I started reading this novel, it was hard to put down. If you enjoy books with wording that helps with visualization, this is the book for you. I highly recommend this book for teenagers who are not interested in books, because this novel was worded in a way that truly made it seem like a movie. This was an overall amazing book (yet I did tear up at the end!), and was certainly not boring at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great I loved the simplicity of it. The main character Maddie was very real and relatable. The writing itself was great. Absolutely loved the ending!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sweet Read I enjoyed the book. It was not complicated or too intense. It is about a bitter sweet relationship with multiple barriers. Do they overcome their obstacles? Well, it is up to you to read! I really enjoyed the book, although I do wish the ending had more of a conclusion, it was okay but I expected more. Except for that, I definitely recommend this book.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Simple but Sweet The writing style of the book was very plain and simple, but I did enjoy the different point of writing style (computer, doodles). The book was easy and quick to read. The ending was surprising (if someone didn't spoil it for me) and overall the story concept was pretty much what you expected but I still enjoyed it. Really simple but sweet story about love.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SO GOOD I went into this book not knowing what exactly to expect and let me say this, I WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED. The characters were all amazing, the detail ohhhh myyy gosshhh it was amazing. The plot was original and unique, and I loved the diversity between Maddy and Olly! Nicola Yoon is an exceptional author and I can't wait to read more from her.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An amazing read I honestly read this book in a couple hours because I could not put it down, I was absolutely intrigued to find out what was happening in the next chapter after I read the a couple chapters. it was a captivating read, and honestly when you pick it up and start reading you'll be unable to stop. You instantly fall in love with every aspect of the book, and I was bawling my eyes out at some parts of the book because it was written as you could visually see everything happening in front of you, or as if you were living in the characters shoes. Definitely a must read!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good. From the very beginning I knew I was going to like Everything Everything. The dialogue was snappy and fantastic, the chemistry between Madeline and Olly felt so genuine and heartfelt, and the added multimedia flowed well with the rest of the story. The love these two had didn't feel rushed or forced, despite the circumstances. Any time they were in close proximity of each other my heart stopped and I couldn't breathe because I felt such strong feelings for them. The climax and conclusion of the book didn't sit well for me, however. They felt rather abrupt and I was surprised when I suddenly ran out of pages to read. I think I understand what Yoon was doing with that climax, and it's really the only way things could have progressed, but something about it just felt lackluster for me. Nevertheless, I really enjoyed Everything Everything and am so happy I finally picked it up. I'm DYING to see the movie now because Amandla Stenberg and Nick Robinson are some of my favourites at the moment and I can just see them making this story amazing on screen.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Everything, Everything Okay first I have to say that I love love love the cover and all the illustrations throughout the story! In my opinions it made this 10 times better. I think that the drawings really added to the story. Nicola Yoon created characters that practically burst from the pages. You can seriously see their personalities just jumping from the page. I loved the interaction between all of the characters as well. Maddy and Olly’s email conversations are just the best! I also loved the interactions between Maddy and her nurse Carla. I just really enjoy when an author makes the characters so real. Everything, Everything is a story that is so unique. I’ve never seen anything like it. I loved getting to know about Maddy’s disease. It’s such a refreshing and interesting story to get to learn about. One of my favorite things is the fact that Maddy is actually half African American half Japanese. I love getting to see diverse characters in novels. While I did really enjoy Everything, Everything there were some things that did bother me. I thought it was rather unrealistic that a young teenager could get a credit card for one. For two, how many people would just book a flight and go to Hawaii with someone they don’t know very well? In my opinion it wasn’t really realistic for Maddy to be locked up for so long with just her mothers diagnosis. Another thing that really bothered me was Olly’s dad. I’m sorry but if I was in a position like Maddy was I would have called the cops or done something. I sort of expected the ending to go the way it did but it didn’t stop me from wishing there was more to the story. I wanted to know about her life after. All in all I did really enjoy Everything, Everything and I would recommend it to someone looking for a cute Summer read.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An emotional read The perspective of a sick main character was pretty interesting. We follow Madeline's development and how she lives in her bubble. The thing i did'nt like is when a guy enters in the girl's life, he changes her. NO. The girl needs to change her situation by herself.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from it was alright After watching the trailer for this movie, I immediately went out to buy this before I watched the film. I expected it to be cheesy, like many of these types of chick lit novels are, but my emotional heart still gave it a shot. But despite the little plot twist at the end and the semi-intriguing characters, this book fell kind of flat. It was pretty predictable which made the rest of the story seem kind of empty. However, saying that, it was a fast and light read so it was a considerably entertaining despite my problems with it. I would say read it if you are like me and like to read the book before the movie, but if im being honest, you won't miss much if you don't read it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MY FAVOURITE CONTEMPORARY I loved Everything Everything. It is a beautiful story about finding yourself. It is beautifully, and lyrically written, and I absolutely love the formatting inside the book. Olly is so high up on my fictional boyfriends list, I can't even describe how much I love him and wish he was real. Madeline is also a fantastic narrator. I felt for her situation, and understood her like I'd known her my whole life. It's something about Nicola Yoon's writing, I just connect so well with her characters. Also Nurse Carla is possibly my favourite side character I have ever read about. I would highly recommend it!

Accidentally left it at the old house on a trip to the new one and couldn't stop thinking about what would happen next. Great story, kind of unrealistic but that's okay since it's..FICTION! Love the cover, it will stay on the front of my book shelf forever :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I was a good romance I loved the book. It was a well written contemporary novel that is equal parts sweet and heartwarming. There were some cheesy bits, but nothing too bad.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from strange... It was well written, however it was lacking something...believability! (I know it's fiction, but you'll understand if you read it!) I picked it up to read since my daughter has many allergies and wanted to pre-read it before giving it to her so she could possibly relate to something. I don't think I will share it after the crazy twists that happen. It was strange on many different levels.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Called it! This is the perfect angsty romance read for teens. A story about the intensity of first love, and forbidden love. For me, it was really cute and sweet, but completely transparent, for me. I guess I'm not really the target audience, though. The plot/ending/"twist" was glaringly obvious to me, almost from the very beginning. Maybe that's because I'm older, or maybe it's because of my medical background...whatever the reason, I saw right through it. Also, I'm not completely satisfied with the ending. Without spoiling the plot for others, I don't think there were enough "consequences" meted out at the end; some things were glossed over, and quick forgiveness was emphasized just a little too strongly for my comfort. That doesn't mean I didn't enjoy the read, though. It was a sweet, quick, entertaining read; just not one I will swoon over, or put on my 5 star list. I finished and handed it off to my teen daughter, assuring her that she will love it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A little mix of "The Fault in our Stars" and "Eleanor and Park" This is your average teenage love story with it's sarcastic humour and cute teenage love your 13 year old spirit craves. Maybe I would've liked this better if I were a tween again but as a 17 year old its very "been there done that". The ending has an interesting twist however.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Read This was an easy read! Although I loved the story, it was a little different, I just though the movie brought the characters to life a lot more than the book. Good quick read though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely, but not groundbreaking. Nicola Yoon doesn't surprise in this effort, but she does deliver a solid, engaging story. I enjoyed the way Everything, Everything uses short chapters, illustrations, and transcribed text messages to effectively flesh out the constraints of Maddie's world and her blossoming connection with Olly. It's a charming story of first love and family bonds - well worth reading.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Unexpected This book was not at all what I thought it was going to be when I picked it up. I'm a traditionalist when it comes to most things and this book is not that. But it was unexpectedly charming. All the doodles, different typefaces and fonts used throughout made it a fun and endearing read. While the basic love storyline was predictable, there was another plot line with a twist that came out of nowhere near the end! All in all this is a really sweet and funny novel (and much better than the movie!).

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Typical romance While this was a good book it was very predictable, and had all the romance cliches. I appreciate the diversity, though!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Meh. I'm not one for teen romance books in the first place, but I will admit this one had it's moments. The author perfectly illustrates the characters' hopes, dreams, and desires. However, it seemed...unrealistic in my eyes, and a little forward at times. But if you like gushy love stories, than I'd give it a go; chances are, you'll like it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from First love in a bubble that bursts I had to read this book before I watched the film adaptation, both of which were good, but the book was lovelier. The concept of a girl with an autoimmune disease who has never left her house because of it reminded me a little of Emma Donoghue’s Room, only way less severe. Nicola Yoon writes brilliantly in first person; Maddie is a likeable and intelligent character despite being physically cut off from the world. Olly is a wonderful match for her and their love story is very sweet. Her first experiences beyond her bubble reminded me not to take for granted that I can go outside whenever I want. I also really liked the drawings scattered throughout the book.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 3.2 ish stars Fast read, and a bit predictable. It had many of the issues that are common in the young adult genre, but I expected that going in so it did not bother me as much as it would have if I hadn't known the genre. The ending felt abrupt to me but it was overall an enjoyable read! I'm sure I would have loved it if I were eight years younger when I read it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Roller Coaster of Emotions This book had me engaged from the first sentence to the very last. I could have easily read this in one sitting, that is of course if adulting didn’t get in the way. The combination of the writing, short chapters and the inclusion of illustrations, text messages, and emails makes this a very quick read. Only thing I am left wanting is this book to be longer, the ending was quite open…maybe there will be a second book someday. This book had me on a roller coaster of emotions one minute I was laughing the next I was crying. The main characters were so uniquely wonderful. I found Maddy to be such a strong, confident young lady and I loved how she wasn’t your typical teenage girl you read about in YA. Olly was such a sweetheart, for not having the best home life he didn’t seem jaded and only wanted to help Maddy experience the life she always wanted to. There was a case of instanta-love but I seriously don’t mind instanta-love, but if that is something that bothers you here is your warning. All in all, this was a very enjoyable read and I can’t wait to read more from Nicola Yoon and to see the movie!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from enjoyable Really impressed with this one! Cute romance, funny dialogue, and the format/illustrations made this even more fun and unique. I also thought this book did a fantastic job at balancing the lightheartedness with the more serious stuff. Personally, I could've done with a bit more resolution at the end--it felt a little rushed, and I would've liked to linger for a few more pages. Also, there were some things that didn't quite add up when I stopped to think about them, but I was able to suspend my disbelief and just go with it. Overall, I thought this was a fantastic debut novel! Funny and sad and romantic all at once! Definitely recommended, especially if you like cute, unique contemporary.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So well written! I've been in such a book slump lately. This book brought me out of that. Is it exceptional? No. Is it a strong story, with well-developed characters (outside of her mom) and written very well? Yes. I'd recommend this to anyone looking for a great YA read. I wouldn't bother with the movie. They even changed a small detail in the ending, and the book does it much better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute, quick read I read this book in a day. It was cute and enjoyable to read, and I like the use of doodles in the book. It is definitely a YA book though - don't expect to be overwhelmed with emotion or a complex plot line. I predicted the plot twist ahead of time, but that doesn't mean I didn't like it! I would still recommend this as something short and sweet to pick up between heavier reads - which is what I bought it for.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Meh I read this book easily in one day. The plot twist was pretty predictable in my opinion and it also made me actually kinda dislike the book. (reminder: dislike does not mean I hated it) It isn't my favourite book but it was definitely a page turner. I recommend it as a quick read but not as an emotionally intense one.

Editorial Reviews

SELECTION: Miami Herald Best Books for Children, 2015PRAISE FOR Everything, Everything:"In her debut, Jamaican-American Yoon gives readers complex characters and rich dialogue that ranges from humorous to philosophical. This heartwarming story transcends the ordinary by exploring the hopes, dreams, and inherent risks of love in all of its forms." --Kirkus Reviews"Everything, Everything tells us something we will always need to hear, no matter our age: that it's not the risks of love or heartbreak that might end us. It's the fear of the pain we might experience along the way that keeps us trapped in our cocoons—or our white, decontaminated houses." --The New York Times Book Review"One of the most buzzed-about titles of the year. And, holy smokes, it's worth the hype. . . . Quietly profound, stoic and wry while still being both romantic and sad; think American Beauty meets Love Story with an ending that is both original and satisfying. MGM optioned the movie rights before publication so this is poised (deservingly) to be the next big thing." --The Globe and Mail"YA book lovers, your newest obsession is here . . . [Everything, Everything] is a quick, delightful read that plays on multiple mediums throughout, and it features a line-up of diverse characters with intriguing sets of complications and interests." --MTV
