    4.5 Stars!

    Taking a chance on an author and a subject that you know little to nothing about, is always a risk and in some cases, its a chance, a risk, worth taking.

    As is the case with Five Feet Apart. Beautifully written, heartfelt, emotional, and a read that will stick with you until the very end, Five Feet Apart is a novel that grabs you around the heart and refuses to let go.

    FIVE FEET APART by RACHAEL LIPPINCOTT was such an endearing, engaging and a sweet Teens & YA novel featuring two teenage main characters, Stella and Will who are both patients in the hospital with Cystic Fibrosis that fall in love. I was totally taken with this story and this tale of these two star-crossed lovers, Stella and Will as they totally consumed my thoughts and my heart.

    This book immediately grabbed my attention with that gorgeous cover and I knew it was a book that I had to read. Although I was a little bit worried because it is marketed for the Teens & YA genre but I needn’t have worried though as I was immediately drawn into this touching and heartbreaking story and I couldn’t put it down. This story was so sad to read at times but yet at other times it was so hopeful. It had me smiling and feeling such warmth and love for these two characters.

    RACHAEL LIPPINCOTT delivers an intriguing, emotional, well-plotted and well-written read here with relatable and likeable characters that I couldn’t help but to fall in love with. The story is told in alternating perspectives between Nell and Will and I thoroughly enjoyed both narratives equally. They complimented each other so well and I really felt for them. Both of their situations and feelings towards each other rang true and I loved how I learned so much more about Cystic Fibrosis.

    The story might be considered to be a little bit corny or cliche for some but for me I totally fell for it and devoured it in two sittings. I am a total sucker for emotional and sweet romance novels.

    Learning that this book is already being made into a movie I just had to watch the trailer and I know that it is a movie that I am definitely putting on my list of movies to watch.

    Norma’s Stats:

    Cover: Eye-catching, gorgeous, intriguing and a beautiful representation to storyline.

    Title: Such a meaningful, emotive and fitting representation to storyline.

    Writing/Prose: Well-written, effortless, genuine, light and beautiful.

    Plot: Engrossing, interesting, heartfelt, steady-paced, and entertaining.

    Ending: An open-ended ending that left me feeling hopeful and totally satisfied.

    Overall: The story is a tender, light and easy read that just simply pulls at the heartstrings. Would highly recommend!

    Thank you so much to Simon & Schuster Canada and Rachael Lippincott for providing me with an advanced readers copy of this wonderful book.

    bitti.

    şu an fragmanı açıp aa- şurası ilk tanışma, şurası Will'in doğum günü, şurası face-time sahneleri, şurası ilk buluşma falan diye diye manyak gibi izliyorum...

    fragmanı görüp, bu kesin kitaptır dediğim kitap oluyor kendisi.. ve EVET HERKESİN MERAK ETTİĞİ ŞEY

    evet. bu durumda ne söylesem spoiler oluyor ama şunu bi açıklığa kavuşturmak lazım... Aynı Yıldızın Altında'yla zerre alakası yok. Bi' film daha vardı Bella Thorne'un oynadığı... onunla da alakası yoktur -izlemedi

    şu an fragmanı açıp aa- şurası ilk tanışma, şurası Will'in doğum günü, şurası face-time sahneleri, şurası ilk buluşma falan diye diye manyak gibi izliyorum...

    fragmanı görüp, bu kesin kitaptır dediğim kitap oluyor kendisi.. ve EVET HERKESİN MERAK ETTİĞİ ŞEY

    evet. bu durumda ne söylesem spoiler oluyor ama şunu bi açıklığa kavuşturmak lazım... Aynı Yıldızın Altında'yla zerre alakası yok. Bi' film daha vardı Bella Thorne'un oynadığı... onunla da alakası yoktur -izlemedim- eminim. Bu hikayeyi ithaf ettikleri Claire ve tüm CF hastaları falan... hikaye de biraz gerçeklik payının da olması...

    güzeldi ya.

    ilk defa bir kitabın filmini seveceğimi düşünüyorum. çünkü aynı şekilde işlediklerine, çektiklerine, sahneleri değiştirmediklerine inanıyorum.

    kitap Türkçe'ye çevrildikten sonra ben eminim ki çoğu kişi sevmeyecek ve filmin fragmanının altına atılan Aynı Yıldızın Altında benzetmelerini onlar da yapacak.

    ama üzgünüm. benzemiyor.

    ana konu bir hastalığı işliyor diye ön yargıyla yaklaşılması canımı sıkıyor.

    ben bu hikayeyi, Stella'yı ve Will'i cidden çok sevdim.

    birbirlerini sevme aşamasının fazla hızlı olduğu gibi bir düşünce geçti aklımdan kitabı okurken... sonra durup düşündüğümde, kendimi onların yerine koyduğumda falan

    olabilecek, kaçınılmaz bir olay yani bu. Hızlısı, yavaşı yok. İkisi de hastaneye bağımlı. Stella 6 yaşından beri o hastanede, Will onlarca hastane değiştirmiş...

    ilk karşılaşmalarında Will, Stella'nın hastanesine bir haftadır gelmiş oluyor. 1 haftadır orada yani,

    yanlış anlaşılmayla başlayıp, tam sevdiğim şekilde biten bir roman oldu.

    ben böyle sonlara bayılıyorum ya. (sonunun nasıl olduğunu söylememek için ellerini yumruk yapıyor...)

    Will ve Stella..

    ikisi de aynı hastalığı, CF'i paylaşıyor. ama Will'in B. cepacia adında bir bakteri kapmasından dolayı ikisinin asla yan yana gelmemesi gerek. Yani şöyle...

    Will, Stella için ölümcül.

    her şeyi anlatmak isterdim ama içimde yaşicam... biriniz okuyun gelin de five feet apart storming falan yapalım.

    bu arada hikayeyle isim de cuk diye oturmuş. iyi oturtmuşlar. ehhe.

    puan kırmaya gerek yok.

    sevdim.

    Plot wise, it was captivating. I was instantly interested in what was happening. The medical part wasn’t too medical-y for me to follow and even though I knew it wasn’t going to be all sunshine and rainbows, it felt fairly light. I have two main complaints: I definitely wanted more from the ending {even if it was sort of satisfying} and

    Overall, it was a quick read with characters I was rooting for right from the beginning. And I’m definitely here for the movie.

    Although that novel stands on a pedestal of its own as far as emotional depth is concerned, I craved more complexity from

    Nevertheless, it is still an enjoyable read, and I’m sure there are many readers who will adore it!

    Two teens who are in love, but are unable to physically touch one another is such a great concept. The longing for something that is so close yet so far, is invigorating, and pulled my heart strings! This idea is so damn beautiful, and wonderfully illustrated between Stella and Will. How they show their affection through non-physical means makes for such a unique relationship, and I devoured it. The banter between them, as well as that which arises among other characters, is quite sweet and never fails to lighten the mood. The only complaint I have regarding the romance is that it’s fast. The whole novel takes place in less than two weeks, and I find it a tad unrealistic that these two fell in love in such a short period of time. I also admired how the author incorporated the two teens’ parents into the story. While their characters might’ve been flawed at the start, watching them leap over hurdles of grief and misunderstandings to form deeper bonds with their children, is absolutely lovely – even if it was vague, and not explored as much as it could’ve been.

    The simplicity of this book truly was unfortunate, since I love the idea of the plot and characters. It’s a short narrative to begin with, and it’s a shame that everything merely happened. There wasn’t sufficient time for grand developments to unfold, and I felt as though each event in the story began and finished only to be checked off like an item from one of Stella’s to-do lists. I’m quite excited to see how this story is adaptated next year, because I think that could solve a few of the issues I had with the pacing and overall flow of the narrative.

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading this one, and love all the little aspects that composed it. I wished for a bit more complexity and emotional depth from the main and side characters, but still found that they had nice enough arcs. The trailer for the movie adaptation looks absolutely amazing by the way, and I love the actors –

    If you’re looking for a quick, sweet read, then I would definitely recommend this one!

    3 1/2 stars.

    I absolutely love love stories between teens with a terminal illness.

    I absolutely love love stories between teens with a terminal illness. It always makes for a heartbreaking story, and room for more education into these illnesses, more novels between teens that aren't of perfect health make for a more diverse romance selection, especially considering these books tend to be super successful with its target teen audience. (And, even before this book is released it's already a movie. Clearly, there's a demand).

    We know that Stella and WIll are doomed from the start, not even able to touch eachother, and that's what makes this book so bittersweet from start to finish. The question is not if they'll make it, but how will it end? This is what keeps you reading, plus the utter cuteness that is their relationship. This was a romance I actually enjoyed.

    I think there were a lot of moments where I felt this book could have been ended, but now I'll say that I'm happy with the final words of the book. The last few chapters of the book are heartbreaking, as expected, but also pretty hopeful in nature. I liked this mix, I like not knowing what'll happen next, knowing that in some way this can't end well, but we never see explicitly how terribly this will end, I think that was executed very well and although it doesn't make me cry, this book had just the right amount of heartbreak and yet not too much, I think it benefited the story overall.

    Will is an interesting character, I really liked the character development in this book. At first he seems like a douchebag, but as we get to know him, he becomes a more complex character with a soft interior.

    And Stella, who's established from the start as a control freak and a goody-goody, learns what it feels like to truly live and not buy borrowed time before she dies. Both these characters learn from each other and arguably come out better people after their experiences together.

    One of my biggest critiques of this book is that it's an easy read, it wasn't very intricate and it didn't take very long to read due to it's simplicity. Maybe this is just me speaking from reading The Fault In Our Stars (a book EXTREMELY complex, which, to the fair, is criticized for), but it seems as though the romance between two sick kids should automatically be more complex than this story was. This is just me, however, and I'm open to others critiquing me about this.

    The moral of the story is that I'll be watching this movie. Duh.

    I like the idea here: exploring the complications of being a young person living with CF. But a queer person of colour dies quite randomly from CF complications right after deciding to get back together with the love of their life and that death motivates one of the protagonists to start living for themselves. It just doesn't sit right. I'm going to let these thoughts steep and possibly come back and update this, but my gut reaction upon finishing this is an icky feeling.

    This book is literally a ‘honey trap’ as we say in clandestine service. Who the hell is

    Anywhooo. The movie is coming out next year and they cast

    ??

    You mean

    COLE fucking SPROUSE?

    YEP ladies and gentlemen,

    it’s COLE SPROUSE.

    I wonder why they didn’t name the book Honey Trap Alert and be done with it??

    PS. I always have him pegged as Noah fucking Shaw but I guess we’ll have to share now since he’ll be in this...
