The movie adaptation of Nicola Yoon’s best-selling YA novel Everything, Everything opens this week. When it was first published in 2015, Yoon’s romance charmed readers with its story of Madeline, a girl who is so allergic to the world that she lives her entire life in the bubble of her home, and Olly, the new neighbor who seeks to know her. Moviegoers will recognize Amandla Stenberg, the actress playing Madeline, from her role as the young Rue in the film adaptation of The Hunger Games, while Olly is played by Nick Robinson, seen in Jurassic World and The Fifth Wave.
The novel stayed on the New York Times best seller list for over a year. The coming weeks will demonstrate whether the movie has the same popularity and staying power. If you’re looking to compare the two, you’ll find Yoon’s novel Everything, Everything in Patten’s collection, as well as her highly praised 2016 release The Sun Is Also Star.
