Hello my wonderful followers! Today I’m going to be reviewing Nicola Yoon’s novel Everything Everything.
Everything Everything by: Nicola Yoon: Maddy has spent all of her eighteen years inside a bubble. Claimed to have a rare disease SCID, this leaves her unable to leave her house. When new neighbours move in next door that’s when she notices Olly. The two slowly start to become friends, then more than friends, which changes Maddy’s world, flipping it upside down, and getting her to do things she’d never thought to do before. This novel started off pretty ordinary with sugary sweet plots; girl meets boy; boy falls for girl even though she’s sick, and it didn’t really feel like there was anything special. As the novel continues the plot unfolds and the twists and turns take the reader on a roller coaster of emotions. As much as the plot’s twist were well done, it just feels like there could have been so much more backstory for the characters, more plot; this novel just felt light and fluffy despite the serious topics it brings up. The characters felt somewhat dimensional, Yoon gave the them characteristics, and a small backstory, but it just felt like something was missing. It was a good story that was easy to read, and the little diagrams fit in to the cute, fluffy-ness of the novel, but it felt like more story was needed.
