Book Review: Everything, Everything


Everything, Everything

Nicola Yoon

Goodreads Summary

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.

My Thoughts

This was a fun, quick read.  I read it in two sittings.  It sounds like it might be heavy, but it’s not really.  It’s an interesting premise, and full of a few surprises.


Would I recommend this to a fellow book lover? Sure.
Would I recommend this to my teen daughter?  Probably not, but I wouldn’t forbid her reading it.  There is an “intimate” scene, but it’s mild, and overall a book I feel she’d enjoy.


4 of 5 stars.
