About this deal

In a short number of pages I became totally invested in these characters and their lives, even though I knew ultimately there would be some sorrow involved. It’s also scripted well and the actors’ additional emotional performances impressed me more than the words of the book.

Stella finds out that Will is NOT doing his treatments, she decides to download the app that she created on Will's phone, Stella and Will facetime everyday to take their medicine together. Will has been to different hospitals around the world, but never actually got to see anything up close because the hospital always separated him from the outside world. As their friendship deepens into something more intense, they face more obstacles than they can handle. Stella suffers from a genetic disease Cystic Fibrosis (CF),and is doing to keep up with her meds until she can get a new pair of lungs. When they're both in the hospital together, they have to rely on texting, Skype, and talking through surgical masks and from doorways.

RACHAEL LIPPINCOTT delivers an intriguing, emotional, well-plotted and well-written read here with relatable and likeable characters that I couldn’t help but to fall in love with. I mean just think about it, they both had to deal with CF their entire lives and they might have friends at school and outside of the hospital, but it’s definitely realistic that they would get to know other patients in their hospital ward.

The story is told in alternating perspectives between Stella and Will and I thoroughly enjoyed both narratives equally. but when it comes to watch or read something heart wrenching tear jerker, I feel like somebody turns on my tear faucet. I don't want to give this a rating after not even having read 100 pages but I'm almost 100% sure this would've been a 1 star read. While masks play a role in Five Feet Apart they sure do seem to be conveniently left behind a good 80% of the time.not an emotional impact from a loving story, like i thought, but a new perspective of how often i take my health for granted.

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.

I decided for my bf and knew he probably wouldn’t live all too long (he’s my ex-bf now and still alive and well! I’m aware that opinions tend to differ when it comes to books like this one and there will always be as many pros as cons.
