However, I’m also aware that an equally large number of CFers have raised concerns over the romantization of CF and the novel’s central topic. So, yeah, it seems CF is finally getting the treatment as an illness to be exploited for feel-good media that cancer has been enduring since the 70s and Segal’s Love Story. Will, a reckless boy also suffering from CF, is doing his best to stir up problems and refuse to take his meds. It’s a beautiful story about love, friendship, hope, fear, despair, anger, weaknesses and responsibility.

So while I didn't like a number of things (see list below); I cannot deny that Five Feet Apart is well written and has good characterization. Stella pretty much knows her way around the hospital, she knows all of the nurses, she even knows most of the patients, including her best friend Poe. Surely Stella’s sister had to die in a freaky accident while she was out living her life to the fullest unlike her terminally ill sister. Because your life is so much more than treatments and hospitals and life expectancies no matter your chronic health condition.Just because you’re terminally ill doesn’t mean you’re gonna learn a bunch of valuable lessons about life or that you’re going to be deeper and more intelligent. I don't want to give this a rating after not even having read 100 pages but I'm almost 100% sure this would've been a 1 star read. And of course resemblances with John Green’s “Fault in our stars” ( they caged me after reading this book and sent me to rehab for ugly criers! Stella has cystic fibrosis, which is a progressive disease that causes long lasting lung infections and limits the ability to breathe.

Sorry guys, I’m mostly sarcastic cow who pulls pranks on people, laughing at people who falls down (I also laugh at myself when my butt hit the floor. CF is bad enough on its own; you don’t need to try and manipulate readers into feeling bad for these characters.Overall, the reader in me enjoyed the story and the characters (I’m a sucker for an ill-fated romance). It's unbelievable to me that our teens are constantly enjoying pudding and milkshakes; yet no one discusses the nutritional issues that CF usually comes with.
