Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon should be at the top of your “to read” list. With the film set to premiere in May, it’s definitely time you got around to reading it. But if you want some sort of motivation to actually get reading, I’ve included the trailer below. And with Amandla Stenberg and Nick Robinson as the two main characters, I’m excited to see how this film manages to portray the book.
Everything Everything is about a girl with a rare medical condition who’s had to live a sheltered life. When a new family moves in next door, Maddy is instantly drawn to the new boy — Olly — and he seems to replicate those emotions. Without going into SPOILER mode, this storyline is fun, exciting, and heart-gripping.
With an immense love for books and a wild imagination, Maddy manages to be a likeable and strong protagonist. The dialogue in this book is witty and hilarious and will make reading this work of art an enjoyable experience. The relationship between Maddy and Olly manages to grow exponentially, and some of the most important moments between them are IMs.
A significant amount of this book isn’t written in “regular text,” but as handwritten notes, mind maps, and sticky notes, which make this book feel like a YA book should — real. Yoon does a fantastic job of capturing the essence of Maddy and Olly’s relationship and creating a narrative that feels real.
Considering the book is very open-ended, I like to read up on what people believe happens afterwards. And although I won’t spoil anything, if you’ve got any good theories on your hands, please send them my way. Thank you.
