The book “Everything Everything” by Nicola Yoon is about a romance between Madeline and Oliver. In the book we find out  Madeline is sick to the point that she can’t leave her house, as she says,”Basically, I’m allergic to the world.” She lives with her mom and her doctor, Carla, that checks up on how she’s breathing. One day she checks out her window and sees a move-in truck and the family that is moving in. And there she sees a kid that is tall, lean, with black jeans, black T-shirts, black sneakers, and a black knit cap that covers his hair. His name is Oliver, but his family calls him Olly. 


This compares to other romance books because in the romance genre there are great conflicts in the main characters’ lives. “Everything Everything” brings a lot of love to the relationship with Oliver and Madeline, such as them  going to Hawaii and having a romantic time with each other alone. One thing that makes this a good romance book is how they manage to spend their time together. Since Madeline is sick, Oliver has the courage to spend his time with her inside her house and that shows that he really loves her and really cares. One thing that is different with this book is that it has a surprising plot twist about Madeline’s sickness.  You’ll just have to read the book to find out what it is.  


Overall, I would recommend this book because it’s not just a romance. It has humor, sadness and it’s a book that can make you want to read it again. I would rate “Everything Everything” a 9/10 because of it’s creativity.
