Nicola Yoon’s first novel, Everything Everything, is about a “bubble girl” – a young woman, Maddie, who is basically allergic to everything. She lives in her own little sterile world and, miraculously, finds love with a neighbour, Ollie. Is this a disaster in the making?
Billed as a book for young adults, this proved to be an interesting read for not so young adults too. I read it through in one sitting, finding the conclusion as compelling as any thriller.
A movie is to be made of the book soon.
