About this deal

and although this story does touch on that message, that is surprisingly not why i enjoyed this book. Obviously I’d heard of it, but I didn’t realise that I only knew vaguely what it was prior to reading this book. I read TFIOS years ago, and I remember thinking it was ok, I wasn’t blown away, sure it was sad, but I felt it tried too hard to be sad…. It’s a beautiful story about love, friendship, hope, fear, despair, anger, weaknesses and responsibility. As they are sixteen-eighteen years old, the writing is simple and to the point, very readable and entertaining.

The authors of this book could’ve written a love story between a CFer and a healthy person (a relationship that would have conflicts of its own), or simply a story that doesn’t revolve around CF but starring a character with CF! 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. Title: Five Feet Apart Author: Rachael Lippincott with Mikki Daughtry and Tobias Iaconis Genre: Young Adult Contemporary Published: 2018 Format: Paperback (bought) My rating: 3.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. Staying six feet apart from others is something that everyone can empathize with at this moment, due to COVID-19, making the story easy to relate to even for those without cystic fibrosis. It also gives us an interest in them, because now we have a connection to it, through the characters.

As their friendship deepens into something more intense, they face more obstacles than they can handle. At this point, what Stella needs to control most, is her distance from anyone or anything that might pass along an infection and jeopardize the possibility of a lung transplant. 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. While this adage holds true in many aspects of my life, in this case it applies to my penchant for reading tearjerkers yet being surprised when I'm sobbing (once again on a plane, no less). 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.As their connection intensifies, so does the temptation to throw the rules out the window and embrace that attraction. Just because you’re terminally ill doesn’t mean you’re gonna learn a bunch of valuable lessons about life or that you’re going to be deeper and more intelligent. cepacia, the bacterial infection that Will suffers from alongside his CF, is very real, and incredibly dangerous. The story might be considered to be a little bit corny or cliche for some but for me I totally fell for it and devoured it in two sittings.
