Publisher's Summary

Soon to be a major motion picture in March 2019!

In this moving story 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 five 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 18, 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 breaking, too?

It's just missing something

The story idea of the story is great, and I like to plot in retrospect, but it falls short. These are life and death characters and I feel as if they could be developed more. Terminal illnesses are supposed to be something with more raw emotions and this story just doesn't do it. The performance of the audiobook was well done, but the storyline was always missing something. It could have been done better. The idea is great, but I wish there was more I'm not sure what but something inspiring. Something big.

It’s cute.

I really wanted to like this story but it falls short.

The pacing is as slow as the dialogue. The secondary characters are flat and the plot- despite the ‘high stakes’ of life or death is boring.

It has some cute moments but it misses the mark for me.

Such a lovely story!

I just finished listening to this book on audible and I am more than happy with this beautiful book. A lot of the book is based on the romance of two teenagers with Cystic Fibrosis, but the story also focusses on representing the life of someone with CF. Before reading this book, I had not clue what the outcomes or struggles of CF were besides having problems with one's lungs, but this book gave representation to a genetic disorder that a lot of people are affected by. I loved the characters and found them relatable and well rounded. Overall, a really great book that I am glad I read before seeing the movie come out in March.

Don’t tear up...NOT!

Oh, this is just too beautiful and something about Love that keep them going in such a different way. Who says Love is complicated...life goes on and you do your best to see how to live. Will and Stella breaks my heart in so many pieces and put them all back again in such a different light. Must read!!!! It’s just too beautiful- by reading this, there is a whole new level for what the true meaning of love is. The audio narrators are awesome!
