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.
Cover: Look at it. There can be no doubt that that is one of the most stunning covers.
I have heard a lot about this one. So was excited when I was accepted to read it on NetGalley.
Covering the subject of bubble baby syndrome really drew me in.
But I was slightly disappointed.
I feel the romantic element was sudden and rushed. It could have built to something intense and beautiful, but I feel it kind of fell flat.
The twist- I unfortunately saw coming. It was definitely a fantastic twist, but I feel it was made too obvious.
It was definitely a fast paced read.
I don't know if the galley I read was formatted incorrectly but it was quite hard to follow, disjointed even.
I think I will buy a finished copy and re-read to compare it at some point.
3/5 stars, Definitely worth a read.
