Goodreads Choice Winner, Best Young Adult Fiction of 2019

In this #1 New York Times bestselling novel that's perfect for fans of John Green's The Fault in Our Stars, two teens fall in love with just one minor complication??they can't get within a few feet of each other without risking their lives.
Can you love someone you can never touch?

Stella Grant likes to be in control??even though her totally out of control lungs have sent her in and out of the hospital most of her life. 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. Six feet apart. No exceptions.

The only thing Will Newman wants to be in control of is getting out of this hospital. He couldn't care less about his treatments, or a fancy new clinical drug trial. 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.

Will's exactly what Stella needs to stay away from. If he so much as breathes on Stella, she could lose her spot on the transplant list. Either one of them could die. The only way to stay alive is to stay apart. But suddenly six feet doesn't feel like safety. It feels like punishment.

What if they could steal back just a little bit of the space their broken lungs have stolen from them? Would five feet apart really be so dangerous if it stops their hearts from breakin

"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. ( )

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.

This review can also be found on The StoryGraph.

I wanted to read this for a while after I read The Fault in Our Stars (a book similar to this one) and not long after, I finally read it. When I finished it, I had a lot of thoughts on the story, for one it left me feeling what I would best describe as gutted, but simultaneously I felt a disconnect from the characters and I could never fully relate to them. Now with that out of the way, the novel starts with the main characters Stella Grant, or Stella (wait a minute, I've heard of that name) and Will Newman, or Will, living in the hospital for their entire lives since they have a terminal illness. The first aspect that irked me was the instant love. Come on. They only met each other for a little while and then suddenly they start a relationship (That reminds me of The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon.) Really? The dialogue was also unrealistic since I felt like I was listening to a conversation between two philosophers instead of teenagers, which is a shame since if that was fixed the story would've been slightly better. This novel also talks a lot about cystic fibrosis but here's the catch: I don't have CF. It's not clear on whether the narrative is an accurate portrayal or a misrepresentation, but I'd suggest reading reviews from people who have this condition. Did I mention the emotional manipulation is off the charts? There's so much talk about death, like how Stella lost her sister in a cliff diving accident, and another character died. I get that Stella was sick and tired of being controlled all the time but that doesn't mean she can be as reckless with her life (to the point where she almost died) as she wants. The ending is a somewhat high note and I enjoyed reading that. Wow. ( )

Actual rating - 4.5/5

What I liked:

- A BEAUTIFUL LOVE STORY THAT IS SURE TO MAKE YOU CRY
- ABSOLUTE DELIGHT TO READ WITH AN EASY LANGUAGE
- ALSO FOCUSES ON FRIENDSHIP AND FAMILY
- A HEART BREAKING TALE WHICH DOESN'T END IN TRAGEDY SO THAT'S GOOD.
- A VERY SUBTLE TAKE AT THE LIVES AND FEELINGS OF KIDS BORN WITH TERMINAL DISEASES.

What I did not fancy:
- UNRELATED TO THE STORY BUT I CANNOT FIND A BOOK WITH THE ORIGINAL COVER. EVERY WEBSITE HAS THE ONE WITH THE MOTION PICTURE COVER AND I HATE IT!
- DEATH AND DISEASE CAN BE A TRIGGER
- I'M DEHYDRATED FROM CRYING BUT THAT'S ON ME. ( )
