Dear Reader,

It’s really hard to write a letter like this when you love a manuscript so much. You want the letter to do this book justice. To make the best first impression possible. Because you’re taking this incredible piece of art that a writer has trusted you with, a story that the two of you (and also, in this case, the fun and fantastic minds at Alloy) have worked on socloselytogether that it’s no longer fiction, but a living, breathing entity. You share this heartfelt, emotional read with your colleagues, who love it just as much, and now, accompanied by what you trust is the right tagline, the catchiest copy, and the most beautiful package you can envision, you send advance reader’s copies out into the world and cross your fingers that Maddie’s story finds its way into the hearts and minds of other readers, hoping that it charms and moves them, just like it charmed and moved me the first time I read it (October 2, 2013).

In this book you will meet Maddie, a girl who is allergic to the outside world. Her house is a sterile, protected environment that she’s never allowed to leave—never even
wants
to leave, until she sees Olly. And then … everything changes.

Everything, Everything
is the kind of book we always dream of finding at Delacorte Press. And now, a little more than a year after we found it, we are ready to let it go—to let it leave its protected bubble of love at Random House and venture out into the world, into your hands, where we hope that with your help, we can make this book everything, everything.

My best,

Wendy Loggia
