Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon owns my heart momentarily.
When you start reading it be ready to drown in cuteness. I love Madeline! I love how she deals with her “sickness” and her way of being generally. I love the conversations between Olly and her and I love her courage.
All the adventures they have actually made me want to be there too and do the same things. I think they’re one of my favorite couples in the YA world. They both have to deal with stuff but their personalities make up for any trouble they have.
What do I think of what her mom did?
That was just cruel.
I’m glad they found out she needs some treatment and a psychiatrist because I just couldn’t believe that she is serious tho’ I was glad this book can give you a glimpse of what trauma can actually do to a person. Her intention was pure but it was the wrong way of protecting everything she has left which is Madeline. Yes I was angry at her when I found out what was going on and yes I came to my senses and I began to understand her.
Carla is just awesome. She’s the type of person anyone needs in their life. So trustworthy and kind and serious about everything she does, I just loved her.
The illustrations in it are so adorable sometimes I just wanted to take a picture of them and instagram it or something. They’re the cherry on the cake.
Yes, I pretty much loved every character in this book because they’re just beautifully constructed.
I totally recommend it even if you’re gonna watch the movie or not. You HAVE to read it. Did I mention the cute illustrations in it?
