This story was very addicting and developed very well. This may have been the most diverse book that I’ve read this year, or EVER. This book really reminded me of The Fault in Our Stars by John Green minus the sadness.

tumblr_m35v1og7eb1r0k5v4o1_1280_largeMadeline has suffered from SCID (Severe Combined ImmunoDeficiency) ever since she was a baby. This basically means she can’t leave her house because she’s allergic to EVERYTHING. Madeline has gotten a lot of reading in during her lifetime. Oh, and she runs a Tumblr book-review blog. SHE’S THE BEST.

Madeline lives with her mother and her best friend is her nurse, Carla. Her mother was my disliked character, she was very overprotective and crazy. At times, I wished Carla was the mother because she was strict but understanding.

A family moves in next door and the book starts up! Maddy spots a boy and can’t keep her eyes off of him. So, she watches him…day and night. It’s kind of creepy, but it’s worth it!

We find out his name is Olly, he does parkour. He exchanges email with Maddy and their friendship blossoms. I seriously lived for their conversations. I’m a sucker for constant dialogue. They were flirty and funny and just perfect. Olly’s personality was similar to Augustus Waters in many ways. We learn about both characters in full throughout this book – beginning to end. We learn about Olly’s family life, as well.

I don’t want to give too much away, but I will say that Olly & Maddy do develop feelings for each other & IT’S PERFECT. INVITE ME TO THEIR WEDDING, PLEASE! (this is not a spoiler, they do not get married haha)

Overall, this story was outstanding and it’s definitely a book that I will be purchasing. It was everything, everything I need in a book. Plus, there’s charts and graphics. Please go pick it up!
