The reason that I eager to read this book was after I watched its movie trailer. Seriously, I love the trailer and I saw in the trailer stated that " based on the best-selling novel ". After I saw the trailer, I went crazy. I've searched for this book from The Borders E-Curve to The Times Citta Mall and my searching was end at MPH Bookstores Subang Parade. It's not that Borders or The Times don't have the book. But, they have in store was the movie cover page. I want the original novel cover page. Luckily, MPH has it. Love you, MPH !!! Hihihi. 

I guess my reviews will be short and simple. =)

Live life in a bubble?
Risk everything for love?
Maddy is allergic to the world.
She hasn't left her house in seventeen years.

Olly is the boy next door.
He's determined to find a way to reach her.

" My disease is 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 mum and my nurse, Carla.

But, then one day, a moving truck arrives next door. I look out on my window and I see him. He is tall, lean and wearing all black - black Tshirt, 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. "

Why I love this book? :

Obviously, I really adore Olly and Madeline love storyline. Nicola nailed it by writing the story simple yet beautiful. I can feel Madeline feeling towards Olly and vice versa. 

All started when Olly's family move next door. Ever since, Olly's move in, Madeline world totally change. Madeline has a new friend!! She really excited about it. Then, Madeline started to watch or stalk Olly's daily schedule. For me, she is so cute yet funny. It is because Madeline never been outside. Her daily life or friends only her Mum, Carla ( her nurse ) and her teacher. She even has to home-schooling due to her sickness. 

Then, they having their first conversation through an email and IM's, then leads to meet up. In the beginning, all they said was "ONLY FRIENDS". But, later it becomes something really beautiful. 

Argggghhh~ I just don't know how to express all of it in words. And, I also don't want to be a spoiler. Hahaha. So, you have to read it by yourself. Okay? =)

Truthfully, when I read this book it seems that I'm in their world too. Seriously, love is in the air. <3

The stalking action ... hihihi

Totally fangirling towards this one. They started to have a conversation through email then IM's. Their conversation really funny, sweet and I just don't know how to express it in words. ( Oh wait, did I just repeated that? Hahaha )

It is because when I read their IM's, this part totally makes me reminisced the moments when I was in a secondary school/university. You know when you have someone you crush on? Then you chat with him/her until late night? Don't tell me that you never encounter those moments. Hahaha. I guessed everyone must have right? hi hi hi. So, this part really makes me smile alone. =p

Her diagrams make this book much more interesting to read. Most of the diagrams told Maddy's story or feelings in a cute simple sketching pictures. Seriously I love it!! Nicola you really creative to make the book so interesting. <3

This one is cute!!!

When you want to impress someone you like or love, it's time for shopping. hihihi

She is funny and cute

She is funny and cute

Hahahaha... by looking to the diagrams can you not even like the book? <3

When Madeline and Olly went to Hawaii. It was the first time Maddy step out from her house. 

I will not explain about this. You should read the books unless you want me to be a spoiler then let me know. Hahaha

Every word has their own meaning from Maddy's feelings or situations. Some of it I totally agree!!! Hahaha. <3

As you know, Madeline life and friends only her Mum, her nurse Carla and her teacher. But, everything changed after Olly's appearance.

Truthfully,  we all know that nothing can beat parents love. Parents always wanted the best for her children, right? This situation same goes to Madeline's Mum. She is so over-protective towards Madeline due to her sickness. But, there are secret that her mum keeps for 17 years suddenly been reveal by itself. How is that possible? 

The situation getting worst because of Madeline the one who knows the secret by herself. Then, the secret makes Madeline and her Mum relationship totally change. I will not story further here because I'm afraid I will be a spoiler.  Hahaha. You have to read the book until the end. =)

It's true, no matter what happen family is really important. Once you lose your family members your life seems upside down like the world will end tomorrow. That's what is happening to Madeline's mum. She still shocked from the day she lost her husband and son in a car accident. Since that day, she realised that she need to protect Madeline by herself.

Love is beautiful,
But, Love also can ruin us as well.

When I finished reading this book, I screamed " Omo, I want more~!!! " hahaha. 

I totally highly recommended you to read this book if you like a simple, sweet yet funny love story. Seriously, you won't regret. Once you read the first page, you won't put down the book at all. You just wanted to finish it for instance. 

I love this book the most!!!!

Rating: 5/5 

Oh, the movie of this novel will be releasing on 18th of May 2017 in Malaysia.  I can't wait to watch it~!!!

I totally advise you to read it before you watch the movie okay.
