Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon
Publishing Date: September 1st, 2015
- Quotes - I related so much to them~
- Oliver, the love interest - not the typical love interest
Things that could have been better:
- Maddy, the main character, was bland - hardly ever connected to her
- Not much of a plot - more slice of life?
Rating: 3.5 stars

But then one day, a moving truck arrives next door. I look out my window, and I see him. He’s tall, lean and wearing all black—black T-shirt, black jeans, black sneakers, and a black knit cap that covers his hair completely. He catches me looking and stares at me. I stare right back. His name is Olly.
