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. The narrative unfolds via vignettes, diary entries, texts, charts, lists, illustrations, and more.

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.

Why I’m Excited:

I’m excited because of this sentence: The narrative unfolds via vignettes, diary entries, texts, charts, lists, illustrations, and more. I absolutely adore novels that are told in unconventional ways. This sounds romantic and sad and different and very, very cool. I cannot wait to get my hands on this one. I’m charmed by that cover, too.

  1. I haven't heard of this before but it sounds amazing! I love the fact that it's told in an unconventional way. That always makes a story more interesting. 🙂

  2. This sounds so different, I'm going to have to add it to my list. With the illustrations, etc., though, it sounds like this is one I should get a physical copy of instead of getting it on my Kindle. Great pick! ~Pam
