📖”My disease is as rare as it is famous. Basically, I’m allergic to the world. I don’t leave my house, have not left my house in seventeen years. The only people I ever see are my mom and my nurse, Carla. But then one day, a moving truck arrives next door. I look out my window, and I see him. He’s tall, lean and wearing all black—black T-shirt, black jeans, black sneakers, and a black knit cap that covers his hair completely. He catches me looking and stares at me. I stare right back. His name is Olly. Maybe we can’t predict the future, but we can predict some things. For example, I am certainly going to fall in love with Olly. It’s almost certainly going to be a disaster.” 📖
I really enjoyed this story! I had a hard time getting into it in the beginning—mostly because of the format it was written—but once the story started moving, I zipped through it.
What I Liked:
It was definitely an entertaining and an enjoyable read. The writing made me want to keep reading. I also really liked the diversity of the characters. I LOVED Maddie and Olly together. They complimented each other very well. Olly was always looking out for her best interests and was respectful and attentive to her needs.
What I didn’t like:
I did not like how trivial Maddie was about her own health. At one point in the books she says “I never would have gone outside if it wasn’t for him” (speaking of Olly) and I didn’t like that Olly’s entire existence seemed to shape her decisions. 🤷🏻♀️ The self discovery was overshadowed by her love for him, and I just wasn’t a fan of that aspect of the story.
Overall I liked it. I liked the characters. I had fun reading it. I much prefer The Sun is Also a Star, but this kept me entertained and was a quick cute read.
