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.

It's been a while since I've bought a book without even reading  what it was about. It had gotten quite a few good reviews on Goodreads and the cover was absolutely stunning so I just had to buy it - and I do not regret it. I think I need to do more impulsive buys because I always end up liking them!

The first thing I really enjoyed about the book was the illustrations. It was a cute concept, and I really felt like I got to know the main character, Madeline a lot better. We got to see more of her world and how she was as a person. Because let's admit it - Madeline is one hell of a strong character. I'd go absolutely crazy if I could never leave my house for 17 years. I may enjoy being inside, watching tv-series, reading and all that, but 17 years with only two people to accompany you, I think I'll pass.

Madeline was also one of the characters that really evolved throughout the book. I admired that by her, because even though she has been living in a bubble practically her whole life she is wise and kind, and she is in some way different. For me she did not feel like the whiny YA characters you often bump into when you read Contemporary YA books.

When it comes to Olly, I may have a new fictional character crush. The way he cared for Madeline, and how protective he was towards her made my heart actually do a flip from times to times. I was absolutely "not" getting love sick from reading about those two lovebirds. I also liked their late night conversations. It always made me giggle like a school girl. Their humor was spot on, and it was just a delight to read.

All in all it was a great story. I really liked the idea, the fact that a girl has been trapped in her own house for 17 years because of a incurable disease. There was also a few unforeseen events happening that made my heart skip a beat. And not to mention that one page that almost made my heart stop.

The reason I did not give it a full 5 star was because when I got halfway through the book, I started to feel like the author was writing as fast as she could just to finish the book. Things was rushed, and it all started to feel less real. I couldn't exactly step back in the story because everything just went by in a hurry. But that did not stop me from enjoying the book as much as I did.
