My disease is as rare as it is famous. It's a form of Severe Combined Immunodeficiency, but basically, I'm allergic to the world. I don't leave my house, have not left my house in fifteen years. The only people I ever see are my mom and my nurse, Carla.
But then one day, a moving truck arrives. New next door neighbors. I look out the 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. I want to learn everything about him, and I do. I learn that he is funny and fierce. I learn that his eyes are Atlantic Ocean-blue and that his vice is stealing silverware. I learn that when I talk to him, my whole world opens up, and I feel myself starting to change--starting to want things. To want out of my bubble. To want everything, everything the world has to offer.
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.

      I read the book Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon. This book is in the romance genre. This book was very interesting and I hung on until the last word. This book was really good ,so I rate it 5 out of 5. Everything, Everything is about a girl named Maddie who is allergic to the outside world and can never go outside ,or she could die. One day through her window she sees a boy moving into the house next to hers. His name is Olly. Maddie and Olly IM all the time and have many similar interests. They also can never see each other and Olly can never come to init Maddie's house. Maddie is afraid of falling in love. Maddie is also shy. Olly on the other hand I think is more outgoing and open. Some of my favorite parts were when the new family arrived it's the house and when Olly try's to get Maddie's attention. I liked these parts because they were romantic and funny. Some parts of the book reminds me of the music of video You Belong With Me by Taylor Swift because in the video Taylor Swift is jealous of the guy he likes girlfriend. Also in the book they communicate by writing signs and showing them to each other through the window, the same is in the music video. Overall this was a great book.

          I really enjoyed reading this book. It was everything I had imagined it to be. I loved all of the characters and the sudden plot twist. I also enjoyed the authors style of writing. I finished this book in 1 day because I just could not put it down. This book is now one of my all time favorites and I think it can also make you appreciate the world a bit more.
