Publisher's Summary

This innovative, heartfelt debut novel tells the story of a girl who's literally allergic to the outside world. When a new family moves in next door, she begins a complicated romance that challenges everything she's ever known.
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 17 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.

Bubble Girl Meets Boy

Maddy has rare immune disease and must live in a sterile environment with minimal contact to the outside world. Enter new family next door with curious new boy, dressed in black, attempting to communicate via the window and bundt cake (it's a funny reference if you read it). Her mother is overprotective (no spoiler there); Olly's home life isn't ideal; and Maddy becomes more daring, wanting to experience the great big, wide world.

Sweet is an overused word, as is cute, but they fit. Maddy is innocent and likable, Olly is humorous and patient and I'd love to know where I can get a Carla (Maddy's constant companion/nurse). With an easy, mellifluous style, the story carries you away and it's over too soon. The mark of an enjoyable read.
