The following book focuses on an escalating love story. In the book, is a girl named Madeline Whittier who suffers from a severe combined immunodeficiency. Due to this, she isn’t allowed to go outside at all. Throughout her whole life Madeline is forced to do everything inside her house, including school, since doing otherwise would put her life at risk. Soon, she starts to take an interest in a boy named Olly who moves into her neighborhood. They talk through Instant Messaging, where she falls in love with him and wants to leave her home to be with him. My favorite character is Madeline, because although she is struggling with her health, she is determined to take a risk to allow herself to be happy. I would rate this book an 8 out of 10, because it is just another love story.
