Reese is a programmer and tech geek who was confined to a wheelchair at a young age. Since then she has locked herself away from the outside in her virtual world - until a chance meeting with an ex-punk rocker girl, Sarah, teaches her that her world is not defined in five feet or less.
This is set in the same world as Music of the Soul but is a standalone book.

If I were to pick a rank it would definitely be at no. 2, karaoke queen being no.1, But this one came close i'll tell you that. the emotions that it gave me were something that i couldn't explain. whenever I would read the book it never fails to make me bawling like a child. the character development was something else. and now to hear it, with such a talented narrator, I cried so much as I did with Karaoke Queen.
I don't think I can compare this book to another. each book has an element of uniqueness to it and by simply comparing two books to one another makes it seem more of a competition rather than simply enjoying the wonderful stories, the artists put down. this book is unique in it's own right, a hurt/comfort story, with something more in between.
In this book specifically I loved how she voiced Sara's Mom, Anne. I loved the deep and spunky voice Hollie had given her and the way she talked was amazing, especially the scene with the phone.
Reese of course, other than the fact that she is the main character. I loved the fact that she is strong and that strength helps her each day to continue on. I love that she can feel weak, because everyone, and I mean EVERYONE needs a break sometimes and to let others help them in that weakness, it gets tiring holding the weight of the world on your shoulders all the time, a little rest is not bad.
As I've said on the Headline, remember to bring tissues because this is one hell of a ride. Five feet or less is something different, and unique. The characters have their own personalities and color that they are not boring and bland. If you've read the book, I recommend you to listen to this because if reading the book made you cry, then listening to it would be a different story. and If you haven't read the book, then what are you waiting for? if you enjoy a good read with loads of emotions then make sure to pick up Five Feet or Less.
as always erik wrote an amazing book. and Hollie did a super job reading it. i own almost all of the audio books that have been written by Erik and i will probably buy the ones i don't have as soon as i have the funds. i really can't wait till audible has all of them and all of the series in the works are finished. i work over night and audible is really the only thing that keeps me from going crazy!
I loved it the first time I read this book. This story does not diminish with hearing it. Great story, Reese is a wonderful lead character. Thanks Eric Schubach and Audible for getting our favorites out in audio.
I have MS and LD and make spelling and grammar mistakes, please forgive the handicap.
