Now a major motion picture starring Cole Sprouse and Haley Lu Richardson!

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. It feels like punishment.

What if they could steal back just a little bit of the space their broken lungs have stolen from them? Would five feet apart really be so dangerous if it stops their hearts from breaking too?

A moving story about love and friendship under difficult circumstances A novel about teenagers with Cystic Fibrosis? When I was a teenager in the fifties, there was Ellen, a girl in my school who had “something wrong with her lungs”. I remember her coughing, sometimes breathing noisily and sitting on the bench when the rest of us had PE. I remember the adults whispering “So sad” and “She’ll die young”. We stayed away. Maybe death was infectious. Ellen died soon after I graduated. That’s when I found out that it was cystic fibrosis that killed her.Now 60…

Really good read I have a child with CF, and I bought this book because of all the hype that I was hearing regarding it. Yes there are some things they stretch regarding CF but I believe it just highlights and raises awareness for this horrible disease that we so need. Worth the read, and my 17 yr old son with CF enjoyed it also. (My son is waiting for a double lung and possibly heart transplant, this is a very scary time in his life, this book helped him feel not so alone, CFers can not “hang out” with each…

HIGHLY RECOMMEND 💜🎗️ So… The Hard cover’s paper slip cover is really odd. When you touch it, it leaves finger prints from the oils in your skin making contact with the type of paper or ink the cover has, but they’re removable by rubbing a cloth in a circular motion over them so that’s good! In all absolute honesty. I’ve read so many reviews on this book about how it will “send a negitive message to children with cystic Fibrosis to risk death for love” but as a 18 year old senior in highschool with Cystic…
