Goodreads Synopsis: 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 breaking too?
My Thoughts: Not gonna lie I decided to read this because I wanted to see the movie! I’m so glad that I read this first. It was so damn adorable and the relationship between Will and Stella was so cute and it didn’t seem like it was rushed or that it happened at a weird pace. I think that the medical side of the story was done really well. I think all of the characters were developed well. I laughed, smiled and cried at points while reading this. I really loved it and I can’t wait to see the movie now.
