In this novel, Madeline Whittier is a fragile 17 year old with a disease called ICID, forcing her to be isolated from the world. She lives in a completely secure, sterilized house with an overprotective mother constantly attending to her. Her mundane, uneventful routine gets shaken up when she meets Olly, the new boy next door. Upon meeting Olly, her whole perspective on the world and her own life changes, unleashing new thrills and adventures she’s never before experienced. This book is highly enjoyable and makes you feel the same emotions Maddy is feeling as her world takes a full 180. I recommend this book to teens who enjoy reading heartwarming romance and coming of age novels!

Madeline Whittier was born with an autoimmune deficiency named SCID or “bubble baby disease”. Madeline, only 17 years old, cannot go outside as anything outside can affect her ongoing condition causing her to fall extremely ill. When Maddy begins to talk to her neighbour, Olly, who has just moved in she wants to meet him. Because she can’t go outside, and he can’t come into her house they must find other ways to talk such as messages on the window or IM. After talking the two begin to develop feeling for each other. Maddy’s condition is threatened when she decides she wants to meet Olly. Maddy and her nurse Carla bring Olly into the house without her mothers’ knowledge so she can have some human interaction despite her mother’s disapproval of the idea. Maddy uncovers the shocking truth about her health and endangers her own life for a chance to be with the boy she loves.

The heartbreaking life and journey of Madeline Whittier is beautifully written and upsetting. This book makes you want to reach through the pages and provide love, help, and support to young Madeline as she overcomes challenge and trauma. The situation that both her and her mother are in makes you realize the unfortunate reality of families who must deal with diseases such as SCID.

Madeline is an extremely gifted teenage girl who unfortunately doesn’t have many opportunities to showcase her amazing talents, humor, and style. Her mother does the best she can to support and care for Madeline after the death of Madeline’s father and young brother many years prior to the story. The nurse, Carla, cares for Maddy like her own daughter. She feels the need to love and protect her as well as making sure Maddy stays in perfect health.

Nicola Yoon’s engaging novel, Everything, Everything is about a girl, Madeline, who is allergic to the outside world. When a new boy, Olly, moves in next door, he creates a friendship with Maddie, which turns into something more. I really like the plot of this book because it’s different from normal teen romances I’ve read. In general, the setting and Maddie’s situation are very different; Maddie hasn’t stepped outside of her house for seventeen years. Also, watch out for the surprising ending. One last thing that I like about Everything, Everything is that it shows that love is worth the risk. This book is one of my favorite teen romances.

Everything Everything is AMAZING! In my opinion it should be a must read! I couldn’t put this book down. Maddie was quarantining before it was cool!

Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon is a heartwarming realistic fiction novel. This story follows a young girl and her love story. Maddy has been stuck in her room for all of her life because she is allergic to everything. She is only allowed to see her mother and her nurse. But all of that changes one day when a young boy, Olly, moves in next door. They start talking and quickly fall in love. Is Maddy ready to risk it all for Olly or will she continue to live her life in fear?

This novel is a beautifully written teen romance. This book was one of the first romance books that I read and completely fell in love with. First, I love the characters in this book. Maddy is very curious and friendly while Olly is more shy and sweet. The relationship between these two characters is so adorable and heartwarming. I love how they genuinely love and care for each other so much. Second, I love that the author incorporates different styles of works in this book such as drawings, emails, and texts to tell the story instead of just traditional writing. This makes this book more interesting to read because it is very different from other books. Lastly, I loved the ending of this book. A lot of people said that they expected it but I thought it was very unexpected and was genuinely surprised.

In short, this is a heartwarming romance about two teenagers. If you like the author John Green or Jenny Han you will love this book as well. -Eunchae, Grade 10

Everything, Everything is about a girl named Madeline who has an immunodeficiency that keeps her confined to her house. She has never gone outside and feels like she’s missing out on the world. A boy and his family move in next door and he tempts her into sneaking out of her house for the first time. The plot revolves around Madeline putting everything she’s ever known on the line for a taste of adventure with this boy. I really like this book and thought it was pretty interesting. Additionally, the ending surprised me so I’d recommend giving it a read.

I loved this book. It taught me to risk everything for love and it's such a good book although it is meant for teens I do be believe a very mature 10 or 11 year old can read this book. I read this book at 10 and I just loved everything about it. I have the idea people can relate to Maddie because we all can feel trapped.

Superb. This is one of those "I snickered, I cried, it turned into a piece of me" books. One protest; the large "plot bend" toward the end is somewhat unsurprising for experienced and fatigued perusers (likewise there are a great deal of clues). Be that as it may, it doesn't degrade much from the remainder of the story, which is astonishing. Certainly prescribe this book.

“Sometimes I reread my favorite books from back to front. I start with the last chapter and read backward until I get to the beginning. When you read this way, characters go from hope to despair, from self-knowledge to doubt. In love stories, couples start out as lovers and end as strangers. Coming-of-age books become stories of losing your way. Your favorite characters come back to life.”

Other: This book has lots and lots of errors! For instance: In one scene, the passage of time seems inconsistent; there are post-it notes that are signed "Carla" even though the character who wrote them is Janet; the definition of "surprise" (according to this book, its plural is "surprisees"); and a picture of the earth that's a mirror image of the actual thing.

This book was interesting for me i like these kinds of books romance and drama. One thing i liked about is at the very end of the book i was shocked that her mom tricked her that she was sick that she had her kept in the house for like 17 years and never let her out. Maddy was brave to go out and see if it was true she was sick she risked her life to see the ocean. overall liked this book i do recommend it if your into romance and drama.
