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.

Studies show there are only 12 different types of storytelling that are possible, and this one is now one of my favorite books. Similar the book Aristotle and Dante Discover the Universe, I will re-listen/read this book because the effective storyline and strong relatable characters. The characters are given solid backgrounds and throughout the story. I hope you enjoy this book as much as anyone else who has shared a positive review about this book!

I loved this book, I knew I'd be hooked from the start and I was. the characters were well thought out and the story, though on face-value, seemed slightly fare-fetched, was very believable.
I wish it had been longer, I want to know if Madeleine completely recovers, does her mother? What happens to Carla?
Definitely recommend this book.

Despite a few doubtful elements in the plot, the story held my attention from beginning to end. Young adults should love it.
