What would you do if you were unable to leave your house because of a rare disease called SCID, or Severe Combined Immunodeficiency (aka bubble boy disease)? Madeline is the protagonist who suffers from an allergy “to the world,” as she explains it. She has not left her house in seventeen years, a mind-boggling issue for the reader to handle. Fortunately for her, she loves to read and this has been her world until a young man, Olly, moves in next door, and Madeline’s world changes overnight. Brace yourself for a shocking ending by Nicola Yoon, which really strains the credulity of the reader. For teens who want a romance with a twist, Everything Everything is suggested for grades 10 and up.
