I liked this book as a whole, but I didn’t love it. I felt that it was overhyped. I really enjoyed the art style and the concept was definitely a different take on graphic novels. I was lost at times in the storyline and I had trouble forming any real connection to the characters. It was a quick read and a great way to pass time.
The additional snippets in the back were great in helping me understand what the author was trying to convey.
Everything, Everything details the story of one girl’s search for adventure in a world she is not able to explore. Being allergic to everything causes Madeline to be incredibly sheltered, with little to no real life of her own, that is, until Olly moves in next door. Madeline’s life soon becomes a roller coaster ride filled with rebellion, lies, and love.
I enjoyed Everything, Everything and I probably would’ve enjoyed it a lot more if I hadn’t been spoiled by someone I don’t even know. Despite that, the story was really cute. It was definitely predictable at points, but it still left me feeling a connection to the characters, who were surprisingly rather relatable teenagers. I left the story feeling content about the future of the characters I had grown to love in such a short period of time.
