“Everything’s a risk. Not doing anything is a risk, It’s up to you.” This is a quote from one of my favorite books, Everything Everything, by Nicola Yoon. The book was also made into a movie released in 2017. It’s about a sick teenager who hasn’t gone out of her house in 17 years. A new family moves into the house next store. Their family has two kids: a boy, Olly and a girl, Kayra. The protagonist, Maddy, starts to think about how much she will sacrifice for love. 

This book is so joyful and heartwarming. If you’re into teen romances this is definitely the type of book you would want to read. Seeing Olly and Maddy and how they grow as people together throughout the book is so entertaining and keeps you hooked. I could never put the book down.

I enjoyed reading every page of this book and there was nothing that disappointed me. If I could think of one thing I would say I wish the book had a sequel or just was longer!
