Description

I’ve never met someone else with CF -- never had a cup of coffee, grabbed dinner, or hugged someone who knows how brutal that disease can be.

Graceling and Daughter of the Forest both come to mind when I think of amazing love stories that develop in spite of the challenges and plot in the story; instead of the love developing because of the plot. I was going to start off by making a joke about the vine reference 'two bros chilling in a hot tub five feet apart 'cause they're not gay' (remember that vine?I know next to nothing about Cystic Fibrosis and it was so interesting to read about these two kids struggling but coping in different ways.

Obviously I’d heard of it, but I didn’t realise that I only knew vaguely what it was prior to reading this book. 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. They go through highs of deciding to screw the rules and be together (though maintaining the five feet thing using a pool cue), and experiencing what they can within the boundaries of a hospital.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. I'd much rather experience a truly poignant romance that evolves over time during the plot of a good book. Both of their situations and feelings towards each other rang true and I loved how I learned so much more about Cystic Fibrosis. 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.

This book immediately grabbed my attention with that gorgeous cover and I knew it was a book that I had to read.

Esas últimas páginas, esa montaña rusa de sensaciones y acontecimientos me dejó con muchísimas lágrimas en los ojos. 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.

They don’t vomit, they don’t throw up mucus, their coughing always stops when it’s convenient, they’re not underweight. 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. Every other 'panic' any CF teen i Five Feet Apart has is short lived, and is brought under control seemingly by sheer will.There are no less than 3 MAJOR moments in this book where things are revealed or happen that could easily have been removed and the book would still be tragic and romantic. What if they could steal back just a little bit of the space their broken lungs have stolen from them? It’s also scripted well and the actors’ additional emotional performances impressed me more than the words of the book. Whether it's at a critical 'tragic' moment or just our lead boy watching YouTube videos of our lead girl.
