Everything, Everything

Everything, Everything - Nicola Yoon I read this to see if it was appropriate for a 13 year old & I say it isn't. My 13 year old is not your 13 year old so you have to make that decision on your own. The characters in the book Madeline (college age) who lives in a sanitized house she may never leave. Olly (high school senior) who lives next door with his abusive father & battered mother. Are easy to like & relate to believably. Their story isn't complex but it is complicated. I really enjoyed the way the story was told with graphics to go along. It's not a stretch for a young woman or man who spends their days needing entertainment to create it; thus the pictures. I would say if you're looking for a fun, quick & enjoyable read this is definitely your book!
