FIVE FEET APART BY RACHAEL LIPPINCOTT

A girl with Cystic fibrosis named Stella, is determined to live for her parents, her older sister Amy, and best friend Poe. Eventually, Will comes along, a fellow “C-F” and they fall for each other. The irony of the situation is, they can’t get within six feet of each other for fear of contaminating the other.

LANGUAGE

A** (other forms), S***, d***, f***, God’s name in vain.

SEXUAL SITUATIONS

Will let’s his friends use his hospital room for certain affectionate purposes. Stella and Will openly talk about never having slept with someone else. Poe has a boyfriend named Michael. Stella swims in her underwear while with Will in the hospital pool.

VIOLENCE

Not really any violence, other than Poe dying. It isn’t mentioned in detail.

RELIGION

Stella and Will openly contemplate afterlife and what they believe will happen.

MORALS

Supports protecting people and others you love even though it can be hard at times.

ATTENTIVENESS

I read this book in less than a day; 8 hours total. I had been wanting to read this book for so long, I jumped at the chance to read it. Five Feet Apart held my attention from the first sentence, to the closing.

MY THOUGHTS

I simply loved this book. Even though I did not approve of some of the content, the overall plot line I adored. I recommend for older readers who can handle a few tears and a depressing ending.

Rating: 4 out of 5.
