ello everyone! Me and BookNerd have made lots of progress on Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon and I think it's safe to say that we are both enjoying the book. We have stopped at the chapter Upside Down, but we are going to continue reading and discussing tomorrow. I really like the book so far and I love Madeline's personality! This book keeps me laughing and rolling my eyes, it's so good! I'll let BookNerd take it from here.
Love,
Steph


Bailey the BookNerd (bn021206) Hi! Yes, I am loving it so far. I wish there was an Olly chapter though. And the characters names are so adorable!
Right now Madeline is having trouble with her mother because she cancelled on their Friday night movie plans. Although I get where the mom is coming from, I want to shake her and tell her to give her daughter some space! She doesn’t need to always hang out with her!


Bailey the BookNerd (bn021206) I have just finished this one and it was BEAUTIFUL!! That twist was so unexpected and there was a lot of betrayal. I still can't believe that happened!

Same! I really liked this book and loved the twist too! Becca, do you have some questions for us?

TOO MANY QUESTIONS! everything, everything made me feel um I have no idea lol. i was all of the above. Amused by the humor from Olly, upset with THE MOTHER WHO FLIPPING LIED TO MADDY :(, never bored, also angry with the mother and Maddy for letting go of Olly, intrigued for sure! I was unable to put it down! Yes, I am glad I read it'

Bailey the BookNerd (bn021206) I guess I answer the next question(s)??

2. How do you feel about how the story was told?

Ummm...okay...lots of questions so... The story was told pretty well. I think (view spoiler) happened too fast though. I (of course) wish it was told from Olly's perspective but also her mom's to see her reasoning behind her lying. It didn't jump around too much. It was really good.

Sure!
3. What did you think about the main characters?

I loved Madeline and Olly. So cute! I think they were believable...
No, I didn’t originally approve of Madeline going outside, but then I found out that her mom was a LIAR. I realates to Maddie the most, I guess. We both ❤️ to read, and we are both outgoing and smart.
