Waiting on Wednesday: 04/22/15

This bookish meme tells the blogosphere what we're waiting patiently (and sometimes not so patiently) for! It's hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine!
Everything, Everything
Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon


     This innovative, heartfelt debut novel tells the story of a girl who's literally allergic to the outside world. When a new family moves in next door, she begins a complicated romance that challenges everything she's ever known. The narrative unfolds via vignettes, diary entries, texts, charts, lists, illustrations, and more.
     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.

Expected Publication: September 1, 2015

Why I'm Waiting: This book seems so interesting to me because my sister is actually one of those people that are allergic to so many things. She's not as bad as the MC in this one, but she has had the pinprick test that tells what you're allergic to five times and she carries an Epi-pen. I feel that this would be something me and my sister would enjoy. Something she could relate to and enjoy. Because of that, I cannot wait to see more about this story.
