Gr 10 Up—From the first page, Madeline Whittier is a sympathetic character who has had to watch the world from the inside of a bubble—literally. Her diagnosed condition of Severe Combined Immunodeficiency is a life sentence that limits her to a world of two people: her mother, who is a doctor, and her nurse. Everything changes when Olly and his family move into the house next door. Olly is the kind of inventive guy who figures out a way to communicate with Madeline, and over the course of the next few months Madeline becomes Maddy, a young woman who takes potentially deadly risks to protect Olly emotionally, if not physically. Maddy's and Olly's hastily planned trip to Maui and their tastefully described liaison while there suggests a mature teen audience, but readers of Cammie McGovern's Say What You Will (HarperCollins, 2014) and Wendy Mills's Positively Beautiful (Bloomsbury, 2015) will fall in love with this humorously engaging story of a girl who discovers life, love, and forgiveness in new places.

"I've read many more books than you. It doesn't matter how many you've read. I've read more. Believe me. I've had the time.
Seventeen year old Madeline lives with her mother and hangs out with her nurse/friend Carla throughout the day. See she can't leave her home because she's been diagnosed to have a rare disease that leaves her basically allergic to the world. It's called SCID. Each time her mother or nurse come and go into the house they have to go through a decontamination process to make sure they don't bring anything into the sterile environment that Madeline needs to live.
Never leaving your house makes for a lot of free time of which Madeline reads, watches movies or plays games with her mother. One of the things that I loved was how she writes her name in her books and rewards to who ever will return it if it's ever lost. She was so creative and funny.

- Picnic with me (Madeline) in a pollen-filled field of poppies, lilies and endless man-in-the-moon marigolds under a clear blue summer sky.
- Drink tea with me (Madeline) in a lighthouse in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean in the middle of a hurricane.
- Snorkel with me (Madeline) off Molokini to spot the Hawaiian star fish - humuhumunukunukuapuaa.
This was her normal life. She was content with it. Until one day, when she hears the familiar sound of a moving truck at the house next door. She watches from her window while the family moves in. That's when she sees him, Olly and he sees her. Later, Olly and his sister Kara bring over a bundt cake their mother made wanting to meet Madeline. Unfortunately, her mother has to refuse the food and can't let them in because of Madeline's disease. The things Olly did with that bundt cake latter had me cracking up.
Soon though, Olly and Madeline begin chatting through emails or IMs. It takes Madeline some time, but eventually she opens up about her disease and why she can't go outside. Olly was awesome about it. He didn't stop talking to her or run away and their friendship grew stronger.
With Carla's help they do sneak some visits and let Olly come over to meet Madeline. The rules are to never touch, just talk. And they follow those rules...in the beginning. But later they test their boundaries by holding hands and then a kiss. Soon Madeline is willing to risk it all for him.
"I was happy before I met him. But I'm alive now, and those are not the same thing."
Gah! I loved this book! More than I thought I would. I even dreamed about it. Maybe it's because I had a connection with the Hawaii part. I had been to the exact places that were discussed in this book. The attached picture is one I took of Black Rock. Whatever the case may be, this book made me stop and realize that life is short and precious. We take so many things in life for granted and it's nice to have a reminder every now and then.
"Everything's a risk. Not doing anything is a risk. It's up to you."
This was my first read by Nicola Yoon. I loved her husband's drawings that were added. The writing was perfect, captivating and really made me feel. I also liked the plot twist added towards the end. I wasn't expecting it. I was actually expecting a different ending, but the twist, while while sad made for a better ending to me. If you like YA then I would definitely recommend this one.
A lot of people knock this book because of insta love, but once again I don’t get that feeling from this book. I mean the two main characters, Maddie and Oliver talk for months over the internet.
I really love that Nicola Yoon always has interracial couples in her novels! I love even more that its not your typical ethnicities either. For instance, in this novel Maddie is African American and Korean. Oliver is Caucasian.
Maddie’s mom is super crazy. I’m not even sure that accurately describes her. I don’t understand how she was not exposed before for the things she was doing. You have to be really damaged to do what she did. I honestly feel no sympathy for her. I actually grow to not like her as a character. That may make me heartless, but when you look at the bigger picture you could understand why I feel this way.
Poor Oliver, he really has a lot going on in his life. Unfortunately we only get to see it from Maddie’s windows. I was so happy when he finally convinced his mom to get out!
I want to talk about here why I took a star off of the rating. I did that because I actually guessed the big reveal before it happened. I just had these suspicions because of some of the smaller details that I was paying attention to. I will say that Nicola Yoon almost had me fooled with Maddie got sick.
I did have a minor problem with the book, but I cant really talk about it in too much detail because I might give some things away. But Maddie sure if reckless with her life and I find that kind of far fetched. I do understand why it was crucial to the plot though. I don’t think there was any other way to have things flesh out the way they did without her being that way.
In this book, we also have an ending that isn’t happy and also isn’t tragic. It just kind of leaves of like “life goes on“. I hope this is a trend that she will keep in all of her future books because, in my opinion, it is really refreshing to have that type of ending.
I really hope Nicola Yoon is already working on her next book because I cannot wait to see what wonderful thing she comes up with next!
