Five Feet Apart by Rachel Lippincott with Mikki Daughtry and Tobias Iaconis

I purchased this book from Amazon to read. All opinions are my own. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Five Feet Apart by Rachel Lippincott with Mikki Daughtry and Tobias Iaconis. Cystic Fibrosis is a very serious medical condition that has been romanticized in this book. The nursing staff in this book is too lax with rules etc. However that aside I found the book moving. Two teenagers that struggle to fight for air everyday, keeping up with medical treatments, and hide personal feelings from everyone begin to have feelings for one another. Will is fighting his mother who keeps looking for a treatment instead of spending her time looking at her son. Stella is fighting to hold together her family after her parents divorce. The two end up on the same floor of a hospital for different forms of treatment for the same disease. Cystic Fibrosis. Life is fragile and everyone’s outlook is different both Will and Stella begin to understand fighting can mean two very different things for them both.

***please if you are going to use this book as reference for the disease Cystic Fibrosis do your research. Don’t just assume everything in here is fact or that this is how hospitals are run or nurses are “not following rules” every person, Every treatment, Every disease effects everyone differently. Do not just assume everything here is fact.***
