Book Review: Five Feet Apart

Layla Rathsack, Section Reporter

The book Five Feet Apart by Mikki Daughtry, Rachel Lippincott, and Tobias laconic is about two teenagers Will and Stella who have been struggling with Cystic Fibrosis but find a connection with each other in spite of their disease. Cystic Fibrosis is a lung disorder that causes persistent lung infections and limits the ability to breathe over time. Because of the infectious nature of their disease, Will and Stella are unable to be closer than five feet to each other. 

This is probably my favorite book. It’s the one book that I’ve been able to read all the way through. it’s not the type of book where it is hard to get into. It’s a little boring at first but once you start reading it you don’t wanna stop. My favorite thing about them is that they are two completely different people but they still find each other as the best people and fall in love. Will is a rebel who doesn’t care about any of his meds or treatments and Stella’s the complete opposite but they still try and better each other. It’s my favorite part of the book.

I’d recommend this book to teens or anyone who loves a romance adventure. I liked how you never knew what was going to happen like there was always a random plot or adventure you could never really guess what would happen next and that was my favorite part. The one thing I wish was different was the ending but other than that I wouldn’t change anything about this book. I would rate it 5 stars and recommend reminds me a lot of movies just because of the big plot but it’s very different in a lot of ways. The book is way better than the movie because it’s more interesting and there’s a lot more detail. So I would recommend this book rather than the movie.
