This is a story about a girl called Madeline who has a severe immune disease that leaves her unable to leave her house as she would die. Maddie lives with her mum who is a doctor . Her father and brother died in tragic circumstances a long time ago and Maddie does not really remember them. Maddie's house is her prison and safety net , she has a daily nurse who monitors her throughout the day but her days start to be less boring when a new family move in next door and one member of the family , the son Olly , catches her eye.
They find ways to communicate without coming into contact and gradually open up to one another finding comfort in each other .
Maddie's life soon begins to feel constrictive and she begins to want more which is where her problems begin.
This was one of those stories that captures you, you lose track of time reading this and you care about the characters , Olly and Madeline are both are struggling in life and reading this you could see the comfort they got knowing they had each other even in the smallest of ways. What surprised me the most was the ending , I was stunned , then tried to see if I could have seen it coming but no. It was written so well ! The story really captured my heart and made me appreciate life even more as Maddie was such a gutsy female who aimed to live her best life! A very uplifting book!
