Everything, Everything First Lines: Nicola Yoon starts off the novel with the perfect lines for a fellow bibliophile.  Madeline is immediately relatable, even if she's living in a bubble.  I do love Yoon's use of various media to tell this story.  More in my review here. 

Side note: I finally finally finally watched the film adaptation of Everything, Everything.  I have a new philosophy on film adaptations--I have to remind myself that they are a different version than the book.  Because otherwise I can't stop comparing the film to the book.  Overall, I thought it was a good adaptation though I had two major qualms about it (SPOILER ALERT): Olly does not do any parkour whatsoever.  Why? It's such a visual thing that they left out.  Also, Maddy in the book is Japanese and African-American with her mom being Japanese-American.  In the film, her mom is African-American.  I guess they didn't feel like explaining her mixed heritage? 

 Yoon starts off  Everything, Everything  with a quote from  The Little Prince.
