“Everything, Everything”

My disease is as rare as it is famous. Basically, I’m allergic to the world. I don’t leave my house, have not left my house in seventeen years. The only people I ever see are my mom and my nurse, Carla. But then one day, a moving truck arrives next door. I look out my window, and I see him. He’s tall, lean and wearing all black—black T-shirt, black jeans, black sneakers, and a black knit cap that covers his hair completely. He catches me looking and stares at me. I stare right back. His name is Olly. Maybe we can’t predict the future, but we can predict some things. For example, I am certainly going to fall in love with Olly. It’s almost certainly going to be a disaster.

 

This was a great book dealing with the power of love.  I recently had a student tell me that it was her favorite book of all time, I know she will be excited to hear there is a movie coming out.  You can watch a trailer for the book at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iPK0lMwRuH0 and keep abreast of information regarding the movie here: http://www.nicolayoon.com/everything-everything-movie.
