Maddy is allergic to the world; stepping outside the sterile sanctuary of her home could kill her. But then Olly moves in next door. And just like that, Maddy realizes there’s more to life than just being alive. You only get one chance at first love. And Maddy is ready to risk everything, everything to see where it leads.
My View (no spoilers)
A delightfully easy book to read. Written in a simple style, short snappy diary styled segments, this is easily a book that can be consumed in one sitting.
Written for teens, it is about first love, desire, trust and wanting seemingly impossible things.
Unfortunately, although paced, and the romance between the two characters was sweet and was nurtured well, the situations in it become unbelievable and I was disappointed in the ending which could have been grittier. In the end it targeted it’s audience (teen / young adult) at the the expense of a more though provoking or challenging ending.
Great lockdown reading though. Doesn’t take much brainpower.
