Madeline and Olly have a great meet-cute through their bedroom windows…but that may be all they’ll ever have. Madeline is allergic to, well, everything. She’s got a medically approved house that keeps her safe and visitors from the outside world are strictly controlled. She’s never let herself want something from the outside. Until Olly. Now that he’s in her world, she wants to experience all the things she’s been missing. But what price is she willing to pay for her everything?
I really enjoyed the unique perspective Madeline had on life. This book will make you think about the risks you have to take to get what you want out of life. You’ll see that no dream is too big to try for, or too small to be important. There’s a bittersweet feeling to this book, but I liked that about it. Read Everything, Everything if you want romantic tension, characters who take chances, and a sudden twist that changes what you think you know.
Hey all, Teen Read Week is coming! October 18-24 is the week we celebrate all the great stuff out there for teens to read. But why stop at just a week? I’m trying to make Teen Read Week into Teen Read Month at Winfield Library. Come in to check out a book from the displays in the teen corner and in the main display case. Grab a bookmark with one of 15 new book lists from the display, or go to the book lists page on the blog. If you want books about Star-Crossed Love, Historical Fantasy, Muslim Teens, True Teen Stories, Horror Stories, and more, be sure to check out the book lists. Come in and grab a book to read this month. I’ll be posting book lists, new books, and some book reviews on the blog this month, so be sure to come back and help me make it a great Teen Read Month!

Back to school isn’t just for you guys, but for me, too! Summer reading kept me pretty busy, so I haven’t read as many teen books as I used to. But now that September’s here, I’ve got my homework just like you do – but luckily for me, mine is probably more fun! Check back soon for teen book reviews written by yours truly. Is there a book you want me to review? Comment me and let me know! Have a great start to the school year!!
