More about Everything, Everthing and Nicola;

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 the window, and I see him. He's tall, lean, and wearing all black--black T-shirt, black jeans, black sneakers, and 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 somethings. For example, I am certainly going to fall in love with Olly. It's almost certainly going to be a disaster. 

My Review

This book . . . I . . . I just . . . I don't know where to begin. Everything, Everything literally has everything you want in a book. At times it had me laughing and at others crying. I really liked the characters Nicola introduced in her story. I loved Olly, who doesn't right? He was a very unpredictable, always keeping readers on their toes. I also really like Maddy as a main character. Seeing the plot line and story develop through her eyes, the eyes of a "sickly" girl, made the story more interesting; which defiantly brought a new level of uniqueness to the story itself. I also loved the pace of this one, I read it in TWO days!  But the one thing that I didn't see coming was that ending!!! Holy Mother of Plot Twists!!! How can? . . . Maddy's not . . . What? . . . Where did that come from!?!? If my vague descriptions are killing your curiosity, you might want to read the book to find out, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. I'm so glad that I picked this on up of my shelves, it really was a good one!

You should "yes. no. maybe." read this book!
