I read Everything, Everything (by Nicola Yoon and illustrations by David Yoon), two months before seeing the movie so the details were still relatively fresh in my mind. This is a rare case of book-to movie adaptation that I’m not disappointed of. I really liked the book and I gave it four stars out of five. It was very well-written and the illustrations, and “documents’ really made it unique; it was like reading a diary. I particularly liked the fact that Madeline (the main character) was a biracial child. As a black girl, I’m not used to reading about girls who look like me so that was really refreshing. Maddy and Olly’s relatonship was really cute and its exactly what I’m looking for when I read YA novels. Olly, her love interest had a solid and personal backstory which shaped and influenced Madeline’s story and that was really interesting. Also the topic of her disease, which is SCID, an immuno-deficiency disease that prevents peope from leaving their home and interacting with others, was one of the main aspects which drew me to the book and I loved reading about it. It was nice having an insight of what it’s like for the people who have it, and their mindset about it. I understand how the ending can be disappointing for those concerned with the disease.
