Book Review: Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon

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.

I saw the trailer on my timeline and I got interested into reading it before watching the movie.
The cover.
The Madeline’s dictionary.
The cute illustrations inside the book.
The Kissing Primer 1 to 3. 
It indicates the potential hand positions, the kissing technique, correct kissing atmosphere, and the mechanics. It’s funny because there are drawings too. Hahaha.
Maddy’s innocence. It’s because I can relate. LOL.
Olly is friends with a gay character. It’s cute.
How Maddy’s mom isolate her. Yes, it’s given that she’s just protecting her because Maddy is sick, but come on, they can always do a medical background check and decontaminate people.
They hide Maddy’s condition from other people. Why hide it, though? It’s not like it’s contagious and affects other people.
The insta-love.
The ending. 
I don’t like the ending! I enjoyed reading i. Yes, I think it was beautifully written, but the ending ruined it for me.
“Wanting just leads to more wanting. There’s no end to desire.”
“It’s weird to miss something you’ve never had—or don’t remember having, anyway.”
“This is why people touch. Sometimes words are just not enough.”
“Boys come and go, but mothers are forever.”
“Life is a gift. Don’t forget to live it.”
“Sometimes you do things for the right reasons and sometimes for the wrong ones and sometimes it’s impossible to tell the difference.”
“Maybe growing up means disappointing the people we love.”
“Love is a terrible thing and its loss is even worse.”
“Maybe growing up means disappointing the people we love.”
YES! The twist, I suspected it! I really knew it before Doctor Francis e-mailed Madeline. I just can’t believe I was right. I felt a little nervous for Madeline’s mother, though. Hahah I thought she was going insane. LOL.
