Ahoy!

This was pretty disappointing. Find out why!

In a nutshell:
Maddy is allergic to everything and has spent her life in isolation. But, when Olly comes along - is she prepared to risk it all? 

The Actual Review:

I have been anticipating this book since I first saw reviews of it in its pre-publication stages and I was sure that I would love it because it sounded so promising so interesting and so deep. However, upon reading it I found that the story was just disappointing and wasn't delivered like the description was. However, it was a nice enough story to read.

Maddy.... Maddy irritated me. Wait, what?! She's ill, she's lonely and so how can you hate her?!  Well, let me tell you that Maddy is just another YA protagonist with an obsession with books and I am getting sick with the whole cliché. Hermione and the March girls started it all but now there's Calaena, Cath, Hazel, Alaska and need I go on? I feel like that authors are now jus doing it to make their teenage characters 'relatable' and it's just getting irritating now.



Everything, Everything is undoubtedly a unique story and the info-graphs, photocopies and doodles add to the whole experience but not enough to detract from the disappointing story;

Also, I would like to thank Nicola Yoon for writing Everything, Everything. I lent it to a friend who is currently going through a tough time with mental health and they said that it is the only book that has managed to take them somewhere else and distract them from their current situation and that it really helped them. So, thank-you so much Nicola, thankyouthankyouthankyou.

Rating:

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

In Conclusion:
⚫️ The description is far more promising than the actual story.
⚫️ Oh look... It's another cliché!
⚫️ The story however, is unique

  1. I might read this book, but I'm getting sick of all the cliches in YA lit as well. This book isn't at the top of my list, but it isn't at the bottom either.
