The girl who lived in a bubble – and the boy next door. “Everything, Everything is everything, everything – powerful, lovely, heart-wrenching, and so absorbing I devoured it in one sitting. It’s a wonder. The rare novel that lifts and shatters and fills you all at once”. (Jennifer Niven, author of All the Bright Places). Madeline Whittier is allergic to the outside world. So allergic, in fact, that she has never left the house in all of her seventeen years. But when Olly moves in next door, and wants to talk to Maddy, tiny holes start to appear in the protective bubble her mother has built around her. Olly writes his IM address on a piece of paper, shows it at her window, and suddenly, a door opens. But does Maddy dare to step outside her comfort zone? Everything, Everything is the perfect summer read – an inspirational story about the thrill and heartbreak that ensues when we break out of our shell to do crazy, sometimes death-defying things for love.
