Hello, squad! Today I will be doing a spoiler free book review of Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon. I hope that you enjoy!
- Title: Everything Everything
- Author: Nicola Yoon
- Publisher: Random House Teen
- AR Reading Level: Unknown/Not listed
My disease is a 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 sneakers, and a black knit cap that covers his hair completely. He catches me looking and stares at me. His name is Olly.
Maybe we can’t predict the future, but we can predict some things. For example, I, Maddy, am certainly going to fall in love with Olly. It’s almost certainly going to be a disaster.
I expected this book to be good (even though I typically HATE Romance novels because my sister watched the movie adaptation and loved it. This is great news because usually book to movie adaptations are horrible. If the movie is good, the book is 10 times better.
Also, can we just take a moment to stare at the cover. LOOK AT HOW BEAUTIFUL IT IS.

The pacing was average, but the chapters were short and I read this novel in less than 24 hours. The story easily captured my attention and I was quickly engaged in the story and plot.
Nicola Yoon perfectly captured Maddy’s wonder when experiencing new things outside of the bubble she grew up in. I honestly don’t think it could have been done any better.
I am quite impressed! Usually I HATE Romance novels, but this was executed very well.
The drawings also added another element to the story. I especially enjoy books with these types of graphs and doodles. It in general makes the story more engaging and keeps the reader interested.
The ending was absolutely perfect.
I would have liked to see a little bit more about Olly’s family life. There were so many chances for more development, but it just didn’t happen. We were only given a little bit of back story, which was disappointing. There was a wide open space for flaweless character development, but it just wasn’t there.
In conclusion, Everything Everything was a wonderful read that easily took the reader away to another world full of truth, discovery, love, and heartbreak. Although some parts were under-developed it was in general a rich novel that almost anyone who picked it up could enjoy.
I recommend this to everyone (especially teens) except those who don’t like romance novels.
