Everything, Everything was a book I picked up on a whim. I figured I had picked something that would take a few days to read, but little did I know that, within the next couple of hours, I would be disappointed. Not with the content of the book, but rather because I finished it so quickly: I read the book in one sitting.
The story itself is a sweet yet typical love story. Teenage girl is terminally ill, confined to her home, and craves the outside world. Cue handsome, mysterious, and troubled next door neighbor whom she falls in love with. He is curious about her and reaches out, her first real outside contact. What happens afterwards will remind readers what it's like to fall in love for the first time.
What made me fall in love with this book are the characters and the dialogue. There were many instances where I laughed and others where I teared up. The climax was something I did not see coming, which made me not want to put the book down even more.
Readers of Everything, Everything will not only enjoy the dialogue, but also the story itself. This book gives the message that love is more powerful than an illness and it can take you on the adventures that you've always dreamed of.
