Hey guys here is a book review of ‘Five Feet Apart’. Aswell as a drawing inspired from the front cover.
Title: Five Feet Apart
Author: Racheal Lippincott
Genre: Young Adult/Romance/drama
Rating: 5/5 stars
Stella Grant 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. At this point, what Stella needs to control most is keeping herself away from anyone or anything that might pass along an infection and jeopardize the possibility of a lung transplant. Six feet apart. No exceptions.
The only thing Will Newman wants to be in control of is getting out of this hospital. He couldn’t care less about his treatments, or a fancy new clinical drug trial. Soon, he’ll turn eighteen and then he’ll be able to unplug all these machines and actually go see the world, not just its hospitals.
Will’s exactly what Stella needs to stay away from. If he so much as breathes on Stella she could lose her spot on the transplant list. Either one of them could die. The only way to stay alive is to stay apart. But suddenly six feet doesn’t feel like safety. It feels like punishment.
What if they could steal back just a little bit of the space their broken lungs have stolen from them? Would five feet apart really be so dangerous if it stops their hearts from breaking too?
I loved this book, it is adorable. I love to relationships between the characters. I love the way they showed cystic fibrosis by explaining 3 different ways teenagers deal with this disease. Showing how Stella for example feels left out from her friends and being a control freak. Poe dealing with relationships friends and partners outisde of CF. Will with his acceptance of dying and how it changes. It also shows some limitations of having cystic fibrosis.
I enjoyed reading the different relationships. Stella’s and Poe’s friendship both having CF and having to stay “6 FEET” away from eachother. I adored Will’s and Stella’s romance and how it blossomed.
~ I HATE THE ENDING FOR STELLA AND WILL. I guess its cute that they love eachother and wanna protect eachother. I was hoping for a better happier ending then that.
This is such a beautiful book. It was written so beautifully written and made me cry on the inside and out. I love these sort of cute books if you liked fault in our stars then this would definitley be your kind of book.’
