You will read this book in one sitting, and it's good if you're just looking for a quick, gripping, fun to read, lighthearted teen romance novel.
The downside is, unfortunately it's not that deep. For all I heard about the book, it was a bit disappointing because it's not that moving and the characters are kind of boring and very predictable. Nothing in the book really makes you feel any emotion.

Nicola Yoon’s Everything Everything was recommended to me by a friend, and I really liked it. I enjoy realistic fiction books, and as I read this book, I found it to be unique and basic at the same time. Everything Everything is about a teenage girl named Madeline who suffers from SCID (Severe Combined Immunodeficiency) which is a sickness where the person who hones it has a very sensitive immune system, and Madeline who has never stepped outside of her home falls in love with the new boy next door. This book was unique in the aspect that it was revolving around a character who was extremely sick, and was basic, because there is romance involved and it includes the boy who just moved in next door. Yoon made the book inspirational to young readers, but also predictable. While Madeline’s stubborn nature to be in love with a boy and find every way to be with him was inspirational to the readers, I found the ending to be weak because it was so predictable and simple. Overall, I rate this book a 3.5/5, and recommend this book to readers 14 and up who enjoy romance novels.

I thought this book was great! I liked seeing Madeline's view on life change as the book progressed. I thought Olly and Madeline's relationship was sweet and wonderful. Carla was a good support character, anyone would be lucky to have someone like her in their life. I liked the humor and the writing format that Nicola Yoon used for her book. I listened to the audio version of this and the narrator did a great job with it.

Did not care for this book. Mediocre at best and that is being generous. The plot twists were barely dealt with.

Seriously though, this book is amazing! Not only does the reader get insight into the life of someone who has had a physically limited life and only gets to experience things through this amazing boy she meets, but the reader is able to immerse them self into Madeline's world. They get to know the people she knows and relates to, and they get "re-experience things" through her.

Heck yeah this is a great book! I read the whole thing in one day. It's very enthralling, emotional, and captivating. I'd hate to compare it to something else and say it was just another run-of-the-mill teenage romance. It draws inspiration from that, though. And some of the imagery is VERY obvious. But it's very easy to disregard that.

Too similar to "The Sun is Also a Star." Too formulaic.
Did not finish.

I brought this book with me camping, hoping to read a couple chapters and I just couldn't put it down. I don't remember who recommended it, but I'm so glad they did. It is a little childish, yes, but I am never one to turn down young adult reading. The story is about a "bubble girl" growing up and trying to find her way in the world (well, I guess in her bubble). I felt all of the main character's feelings right alongside her - loneliness, fear, love, excitement, disappointment, anger, joy, frustration, etc. I noticed that the book was turned into a movie (or at least that's what the front of the cover said), but movies never seem to live up to the books so I'll probably pass on seeing it - but I will grab a few more books by this author! I would give it a 9 out of 10.

Wonderful!! Can't believe I finished the book in two days it keep me wanting to read more and more. I was so interested with the book and it's just an amazing book.

Not a teen book you would expect everyday, but it's okay, I guess. Maybe a book you would flip through in a flash.

" Not pointless," she says, and looks at me seriously. "Just because you can't experience everything doesn't mean you shouldn't experience anything..." (Carla to Madeline)

We watch the way the water pulls back and turns over and beats against the sand, trying to wear the earth away. And even though it doesn't succeed, it pulls back and pounds the shore again and again, as if there were no last time and there is no next time and this time is the time that counts. Page 232

Other: This book has lots and lots of errors! For instance: In one scene, the passage of time seems inconsistent; there are post-it notes that are signed "Carla" even though the character who wrote them is Janet; the definition of "surprise" (according to this book, its plural is "surprisees"); and a picture of the earth that's a mirror image of the actual thing.
