Everything,EverthingCoverIn Sept. 2015, Nicola Yoon published the now nationally acclaimed book, Everything, Everything. The book was such a success that it is already being made into a movie.

Almost as soon as I started taking book review requests, Everything, Everything came up, so I had to see for myself what was so awesome about this book, and I was not disappointed.

This book was phenomenal. I finished this book in one day. I really liked this book. The hands-on way that the author placed drawings and images throughout the book made the reader feel as though they were living inside the book, and not just the story. It was like the story was coming off the page and surrounding the reader. It kind of invoked a strange feeling in me that I had not felt in a long time. It was a good book, and I wanted to spend all day reading it, which was exactly what I did.

The only negative thing I have with this book is the fact that the protagonist had no desire to leave the house before she turned 18. If I had been cooped up for so many years, I would have exploded from boredom long before that. But Madeline seems perfectly fine with just sitting around for all that time. It just leaves some questions on my part.
