Five Feet ApartFive Feet Apart by Rachael Lippincott
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

“And I realize I’m doing the one thing I’ve told myself this whole time I wouldn’t do. I’m wanting something I can never have.”

 

📚 Series:  No.
📚 Genre: Young Adult Romance
📚 POV:  Alternating third person.
📚 Cliffhanger: No.

⚠ Content Warnings:  (maybe inaccurate) Cystic Fibrosis descriptions. Death and dying.
⚠ Read if: you are a fan of TFIOS, I guess.

I read Five Feet Apart because I wanted to watch the film. And I am a firm believer of books first, before movies.

The story revolves around Stella and Will, both suffering from CF. This story revolves on how they deal with the disease, its effects to their families, hope, grief, loneliness, love, and the possibility of death.

I know this book is quite short and that it is based off the screenplay, so I guess the movie will not disappoint.

What I liked about this story is the awareness it spreads about CF, as well as the importance of treatment and treatment availability for diagnosed patients.

On the romance standpoint, I loved how things turned out. and how some decisions they made were actually quite mature and selfless. There were a lot of cutesy moments in there, too.

Overall, I liked the story. It’s not remarkably awesome, but it’s not bad either.

⚠️⚠️ Initial Review ⚠️⚠️

I want to read this before I watch the movie. Because I’m crazy like that.

Also, I am doing this thing ONLY for Cole Sprouse.

Nicole (aka MEEEE) loves Cole. 🥰
