This book was quite sad and it made me so grateful to live in a warm house with all of family together. I loved this book so much and I would definitely recommend it to teens.

Five Feet Apart

Five Feet Apart by Rachel Lippincott


Five feet apart is about two teens with diseases that keeps them from doing all the things that they want to do. They both have to live in a hospital. Stella is an organized control freak who plays everything by the rules. Will, on the other hand, is the complete opposite. He brakes all the rules and never takes his medications that keep him alive. One night, Will is on the roof looking like he is going to jump. Stella runs up the stairs to save him and they make a deal to keep each other alive. They have to stay 6 feet apart from each at all times. But when their paths begin to cross more often the 6 feet distance that keeps them alive starts to shrink. Will they stay within 6 feet? Will the head nurse catch them? Find all the answers in this fantastically romantic book, Five feet apart.

My rating:

This book was so amazing I could hardly put it down! It was a bit of a sad book, but it was full of wonder and many small adventures. I would recommend this book to teens who are interested in romance books. Caution: There is quite a bit of swearing in this book.

Five stars out of five.
