“Everything’s a risk. Not doing anything is a risk. It’s up to you.”


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.

Personal Experiences

I love Romance novels. Even the kiddish ones. This book is similar to The Fault in Our Stars  in that it has people with diseases and romance. I loved how Nicola incorporated drawing into her writing. It is short, sweet, and beautiful.


  1. This book is a “soon-to-be Major Motion Picture” coming out in 2017
  2. I am in the process of making a book trailer for this book, so look out for it the near future


“Maybe growing up means disappointing the people we love.”

Spoiler alert: Love is worth everything. Everything.”

“Life is a gift. Don’t forget to live it.”

“Sometimes I reread my favorite books from back to front. I start with the last chapter and read backward until I get to the beginning. When you read this way, characters go from hope to despair, from self-knowledge to doubt. In love stories, couples start out as lovers and end as strangers. Coming-of-age books become stories of losing your way. Your favorite characters come back to life.”
