This is the story of the thrill and heartbreak that ensues when we break out of our shell to do crazy, sometimes death-defying things for love.
Madeline Whittier is allergic to the outside world. So allergic, in fact, that she has never left the house in all of her seventeen years.
But when Olly moves in next door, and wants to talk to Maddy, tiny holes start to appear in the protective bubble her mother has built around her.
Olly writes his IM address on a piece of paper, shows it at her window, and suddenly, a door opens.
Maddy is certainly going to fall in love with Olly. It's almost certainly going to be a disaster.

"This extraordinary first novel about love so strong it might kill us is too good to feel like a debut. Tender, creative, beautifully written, and with a great twist, Everything, Everything is one of the best books I've read this year" -- Jodi Picoult
"With offbeat, pragmatic and sweetly romantic characters and an unconventional narrative style . . . "Everything, Everything" tells us something we will always need to hear, no matter our age: that it's not the risks of love or heartbreak that might end us. It's the fear of the pain we might experience along the way that keeps us trapped in our cocoons" * New York Times *
"Fresh, moving debut . . . far more complex than the sweet tale of first love it initially seems to be" * Entertainment Weekly *
"This heartwarming story transcends the ordinary by exploring the hopes, dreams, and inherent risks of love in all of its forms" * Kirkus Starred Review *
