Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon
Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon is a beautiful book written in moments. The main character is essentially a bubble girl and has been living in her home without access to the rest of the world for as long as she can remember. She reads, takes classes online, and has accepted that she will never do normal things like go to High School with other kids.
Then he moves in next door…yes, of course the boy changes everything! Geesh!
Suddenly she wants more. But what does she find?
This is truly a heartwarming story about first love, finding yourself, and LIVING! This book may have you thinking to yourself… Am I truly living?
Tons of quotable text throughout the book but here is one of my favorite passages:
“Be careful,” Olly calls out from somewhere behind me.
I’m not sure what this means in this context. Be careful because I may drown? Be careful because I may get sick? Be careful because once you become a part of the world it becomes a part of you, too?
Because there’s no denying it now. I’m in the world.
And, too, the world is in me.
It’s a fast read because of the format of the book. The story is good + the cover is super pretty! 😉
Grab your copy here. I haven’t seen the movie yet but it released this summer. Hopefully it’s as good as the book!
