"Everything, Everything" by Nicola Yoon Review

95Her disease is as rare as it is famous. It’s a form of Severe Combined Immunodeficiency, which means that she is allergic to the world. She don’t leave her house and have not left the house in fifteen years. The only people she ever see are her mom and her nurse, Carla. But then one day, a moving truck arrives. New next door neighbors. She look out the window, and she see him. He’s tall, lean and wearing all black. His name is Olly. She wants to learn everything about him.

This book is a romantic / drama book, meant for teens. So if you are into YA books which are about teens falling in love then maybe you should give this book a shot if you haven’t by far.

The characters yeah the characters. The main characters are pretty much the typical teen characters which we can see in every movie and series now on days. The mother of the main character, she is toxic a lot. And the boy next door is a kind of guy who likes to flex.

The deceptions of the characters are flat and not much to talk about. In the end it doesn’t help that the characters are boring and not unique at all.

However, I need to give this book point for being fun to read. And all these illustrations of emails, text messages etc makes it even more fun to read, and it sort of got me involved in the story.

It’s important to say that throughout this book we are given clues to how it might end. I personally didn’t see them until very end.

When you look at this book as a whole thing that you will see that this book is much more cheesy than it is sweet or good read. And if you like me, who hates young adult books who are cheesy at this level, you will straight away hate this book.

The writing style isn’t something which I personally have expected. It is okay but I thought it would be some kind of better.  There were times when the writing style basically went like “i can talk to him on the Internet for hours but when we are here face to face I can’t talk to him”.

Overall this book is typical young adult book. Which involves an abusive father, hot boy next door, loner girl, toxic mother, taking a trip to Hawai, loving gay friend and all that.

If we go to the main character for the last time to talk about her I need to say that she is taking all the fucking bad decisions ever. It feels like she was born yesterday or that she was born without brain cells.

I give this book 1,5 / 5
