Amandla will star opposite Nick Robinson as Olly. Robinson is known for his work in Jurassic World and The Kings of Summer.
Nicola Yoon's young adult novel follows Maddy, a teen who has severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID), a rare disease that causes her to be allergic to practically everything. She has spent 17 years hiding out in her home, only seeing her mother and her nurse, Carla. But when a boy named Olly moves in next door, Maddy begins to fall in love.
Congrats Amandla! May the odds be ever in your favor!
