Yesterday, I arrived at the airport at 4:45am. I was delayed and delayed and delayed until 4:45pm. I started this book on the tarmac, deplaned and moved with it to the seat next to Mr. Yelling At Customer Service, and finished it curled up next to the charging station. It's a quick read and helped make the misery of air travel a bit less miserable.
HOWEVER...Everything Everything was not everything everything I hoped for. That's not to say I didn't enjoy it. I liked it. I did! But it wouldn't be on my top ten list of books to recommend.
The story follows Madeline, a girl with a rare disease that has kept her in an air locked, germ free home for 18 years. Madeline is shockingly (unbelievably?) upbeat about her confinement . . . until Olly moves in next door.
I think we can all predict how things will transpire once the handsome boy-next-door enters the picture. The plot pans out as expected, albeit with an interesting twist toward the end.
I recommend this book as a fluff break between bigger and better books. I enjoyed it in the way I enjoy watching Blue Crush for the thousandth time. I know it's not good... But that doesn't mean I don't like it.
