"Five Feet Apart" has been constantly compared to books such as "Everything, Everything" and "The Fault in Our Stars", and that's a pretty fair comparison. This book is about Stella and Will, two teenagers who have severe lung problems that keep them both in and out of the hospital on a regular basis. Then, of course, they meet, and their relationship begins to develop as they deal with feelings for each other, the constant feelings of missing out on life, and their own individual fears about their family.

I really enjoyed how modern and fresh this story was. Both characters felt like real teens living in 2018: they use Instagram and get those fomo feels, Stella has a popular YouTube channel she uses to talk about her condition, and they ACT like actual teens without feeling super dramatic in the way YA characters sometimes do. Stella especially was super enjoyable to read about. She's an intelligent, emotional, witty young woman who works hard for the future she wants. She's a gifted coded, too, and uses her skills to build an app that will help her and other users track their medications. Stella also cares deeply for her family and her communication and relationship with them felt genuine.

At first, I thought I was going to dislike Will- he's initially got those "bad boy who wants to die" vibes but quickly we learn there is more to him. Like Stella, he's struggling with missing out on life, but unlike her Will feels like there is less to fight for. His character development is less interesting; however, I liked seeing him and the others (Poe, Jason, Mya, etc) begin to form their group of friends and work with each other to encourage and keep safe their friends.

Lippincott has an easy way of writing, one that is descriptive but to the point and doesn't waste time keeping the plot moving. I felt like a couple scenes could have been beefed up a bit more, but that could also be me just wanting to spend more time with the characters! :D
This is a quick read, and if you enjoy witty contemporary romances then I would recommend this. It's a good wintery read that will leave you with some feels and most likely a desire to see the upcoming film.

i really like how much time on the page is given to the growth of the main character here, that this isn't about the relationship so much as grief and allowing yourself to become who you're meant to be. i enjoyed this.

Five Feet Apart by Rachael Lippincott, published by Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers tells the story of Stella and Will. Stella has admitted herself into the hospital she’s been treated in most of her life. She has cystic fibrosis and now she has a fever and sore throat that has landed her in the hospital again. The staff and other CF patients know her well but she meets a new patient, Will. Eight months ago, Will found out that he has a fatal illness to go along with the CF he already has and he’s in the hospital for a drug trial. He’s tired of being trapped in hospitals and just wants to enjoy life. Will seems to not care about getting better while Stella is compulsive about her strict medical routine. The more I read, the more the story revealed about Stella’s and Will’s lives and their families. The daily CF routines are difficult and time-consuming and if there’s no improvement, the patient struggles to see any benefit. Full of loyalty and friendship, Five Feet Apart lets us see deeper into the difficulties of having cystic fibrosis and the tragedy of young people knowing nothing else but medical treatments and a short life span hovering in their futures. Heartbreaking, hopeful and inspiring all at the same time, five stars! I think that everyone who needs a good cry and a way to hope should read this one. I didn’t realize how much I needed this book until after I finished it and the impact it has had on my life.
