Also a major motion picture starring Cole Sprouse and Haley Lu Richardson! Goodreads Choice Winner, Best Young Adult Fiction of 2019 In this #1 New York Times bestselling novel 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 a few 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 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.

    This is a highly recommended book

    This book was written by Rachel Lippincott. This is a romance book. This book is about two teenagers with the disease cystic fibrosis. This is a disease where you have too much mucus in your lungs and it causes you to have breathing problems. If you have this disease you cannot get within 6 feet of someone else with this disease or it could cause death. These two teenagers met at a hospital and they didn't really get along at first. Will would try to talk to Stella but she never talked back. After a while they became friends and Will ended up falling in love with Stella. After a little bit of time Stella ended up falling in love with Will and they started doing everything together. One day they decided to go on a walk to the city when they stopped at an iced over pond. Stella got a call from the hospital saying that her new lungs were ready but she didn’t tell Will because she didn’t want to go back. They were messing around on the ice when Stella fell through. Will managed to pull her up from the water and had to give her mouth to mouth. The hospital found them both laying on the ice very sick. They got back to the hospital and Stella got her new lungs and neither of them were sick but Will decided to go and never see Stella again for the safety of both of them. I really like this book because it is a really sweet book but it is also really sad. It shows the difficulty of some people's lives. I think it is a great book. I would recommend this book because it has a lot of ups and downs and it kinda keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole time.

    Fantastic book! So touching.

    If you are looking for a heart-shattering and tear provoking book this is book is a great fit for you. The authors did a great job hooking readers onto the story early on with powerful metaphors and deep and meaningful personification. While reading this book I was constantly shocked by the way the authors portrayed this awful condition. Although it was portrayed relatively accurately, I thought the severity of this illness was not shown enough as this condition claims many lives. The love story portrayed in this book is one I hope to see a happy ending to. The 2 lovesick teenagers that are plagued by their common illness are something similar to The Titanic. By the end of this read my heart was broken but my hopes were still high for the wellbeing of the characters.
