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.
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. @goodreads
Holy freaking hell! How do I write a review for this book without
spoilers! I can't give out spoilers! This book must be read!! Oh. My.
God. I CAN NOT believe what Maddy goes through. And the ending! I
thought I was going to have a panic attack reading what happens!!!!
Whittier (Maddy) has SCID, basically meaning she is allergic to
everything and has been sealed inside of her house since she was
four-years-old or she will die. Her mother is a doctor and they have a
woman named Carla that watches her when her mom is out. She has to take
her vitals every few hours. They stand in an air-lock at the door until
they are safely decontaminated. The house has filters, well you name it.
This girl is 18 and doesn't know the real world.... until.... Ollie
moves in next door. He's hot, he's sweet and he is really good with
You know that they are going to fall in love and it's so sweet, it's so sweet and so damn sad. I can't take it!!!!!
what else can I say... shit... let me just say a little about the end
but not too much. Maddy decides she wants to get out and see the world.
She lies to Olly, gets him to go on a trip and things happen and she
almost dies, but if these things didn't happen... if Ollie didn't come
into her life.... she wouldn't have found out the biggest thing she
needed to learn about her life. And it made me cry damn it!!
I love this book. Kudos to the author!
