Five Feet Apart

A beautiful and compelling story. The book is about two inseparable teens who suffer from cystic fibrosis, and they long to touch each other, but they must stay the dreaded six feet apart at all times, because two people with cystic fibrosis can not go closer then that. They can't even get a few feet closer without risking their lives. The perfect story for anyone who likes a spinning romance with loving characters, and an exciting but emotional plot. Once I started reading, I couldn't put the book down! I even skipped my dinner that day just so I wouldn't have to stop reading!

I think the most compelling fact about the book is how Will and Stella's relationship first starts out of like, and how their love for each other grows/changes throughout the course of the book. I also like how there are separate chapters for both characters point of view. It makes it very interesting and compelling to hear both sides of the same story. I love how the ending of the book is kind of in the middle; not really a cliff-hanger, nor a complete ending for each character. It was in the middle, which made me very satisfied when I finally closed the book.
