So I guess I’ll do something interesting I’ll give three stars to this book after watching movie but I’m giving five stars to the script ( and also entire casting won my heart and earned their ten stars) and I will give 3. For the first time, I feel the weight of every single inch, every single millimeter of the six feet between us. Stella the good girl that went through with her regimen and always did what the doctors told her to do, and Will the rebel who didn’t give a damn about his treatments.

Will, a reckless boy also suffering from CF, is doing his best to stir up problems and refuse to take his meds. None of our teens seem to experience urgency to urinate, constant thirst, dry mouth, digestive issues, headaches, dizziness, increased chest pain, etc. The only thing that made me continue reading till the end was my own curiosity as to what happens to Stella and Will as CF patients. Leer una historia de amor entre dos personas que, literalmente, no pueden tocarse porque sus vidas corren peligro es de lo más duro que he hecho últimamente. All of those get put to the test when she meets Will, an impossibly charming boy who has the same illness.Stella Grant likes to be control – even though her totally out-of-control lungs have sent her in and out of the hospital most of her life. So, yeah, it seems CF is finally getting the treatment as an illness to be exploited for feel-good media that cancer has been enduring since the 70s and Segal’s Love Story.

Can't say I'm surprised I didn't enjoy this book but it was part of my "Goodreads Reading Challenge" so I did it. So while I didn't like a number of things (see list below); I cannot deny that Five Feet Apart is well written and has good characterization. When she’s not writing, she is watching old black and white movies, listening to Doris Day on repeat, or reading ancient Greek plays.In one week Will turns eighteen, and then he'll be able to unplug himself from all these machines and actually go see the world, not just the hospitals. As I'm sure we can all imagine not being able to breath is horrifying and induces an instant panic attack. I was totally taken with this story and this tale of these two star-crossed lovers, Stella and Will as they totally consumed my thoughts and my heart.

HOWEVER, the only character of colour (who is also the only gay character) dies and this seems to be the catalyst for the mc to realise she wants to live her life to the fullest (or essentially throw her whole fucking life away coz she's horny), which was not cool. I remember days where Scott would tell us the side effects of the drugs were wearing him down faster than his limited breathing. The illness is completely sanitized, and the hospital is portrayed as a playground where you can roam around freely and not, uh, a place to get better. I’m hopeful that this book will at least get people to pay attention to a disease that has largely been unknown. You’d think living with a chronic terminal illness would make you fed up with your chronic terminal illness, but turns out these characters always have the time and energy to ponder on the afterlife and the progression of their condition.There’s a high risk you might lose the person you love and not a lot of people would be willing to take that risk. One day, Stella is on her way to visit the NICU when she walks past a room and notices someone new, that would be Will Newman. If I take a closer look at the love story between Stella and Will I’ve to say that it worked for me. It also doesn’t mean you’re gonna be thinking about your condition and death 24/7, which is something our characters do ALL.

Stella likes to be in control, even though her totally out-of-control lungs have sent her in and out of the hospital most of her life. Will's refusal to participate in his own treatment is something she can't control, and that angers and saddens her. I went into this story completely blind, I recommend doing so because it definitely gives you all the feels not knowing anything until you read it.I'm sure I'm missing dozens of other things to point out and I would encourage everyone with interest to read more about CF from reliable health sites. Five Feet Apart is now a major motion picture on Netflix starring Cole Sprouse (Riverdale's Jughead) and Haley Lu Richardson (The Edge of Seventeen and Recovery Road)! I found the development of their love extremely fast, considering Stella’s coldness towards him in the beginning, but perhaps given their situation it would be quick to develop? It is easy to read, laid out in alternating chapters – changing between Stella’s point of view and Will’s.
