Waiting on Wednesday: Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.  Its purpose is to spotlight eagerly-anticipated upcoming releases.

This week I’m eagerly awaiting:

Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon

Expected Release Date: September 1, 2015

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.

The buzz on this one has been good so far, and I think it looks really interesting.  I love the exploration of a girl allergic to the world and how she has to navigate that as she gets older (it reminds me–probably rightfully so–of The Boy in the Plastic Bubble).  At any rate, this is one that I’m genuinely excited about.

What are you waiting on this week?

    1. I think I have an ARC sitting somewhere but I haven’t gotten to it yet. Maybe I should bump it up on my list.

      1. Definitely worth it!! So many books have similar themes, but this one’s unique, which I love!
