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 Waiting

Gahhh have you read the synopsis? I have never read a book about a girl allergic to the world and that just already seems like an awesome concept. If there is a guy involved as well I would love to see how that plays out. (Actually, I've already read this book but guess what? These are my initial thoughts and questions when I first decided I wanted to read this book [I really enjoyed the book in case you're wondering]) People have also been raving about this book, it's gotten pretty good ratings, and the cover is beautiful. 

So tell me: Have you heard of this book?
