I'm a 19-year-old college student! I used to be an avid reader, but I sort of fell out of it during school. However, I've fallen for reading once again! Hobbies: Singing, Playing Guitar, Reading, Writing
God this book!!
I read the book over a year ago, a good bit before the movie was released. I recently reread it just a few weeks ago. My opinion hasn't changed one bit.
The book is such a lovely read! It's a very easy read. The writing style is very personal, so it was very easy to be immersed into the story.
It's hard not to fall in love with the characters and feel as passionately as Madeline.
This book sends you on a rollercoaster ride of emotion, but will definitely give you that warm and fuzzy feeling.
Very Basic Synopsis:
The story follows an 18-year-old Madeline Whittier, who is housebound due to a severe illness, SCID. Therefore, the only world she's ever known was her mother and her nurse, until a family moves next door and she observes them from her bedroom window. Eventually, she starts to contact the son of the new family, Olly and her world suddenly appears bigger.
I give it a rating of 5 stars!
[I also recommend checking out the movie as well! It's amazing!!]
