Five Feet Apart is a novel about two people who suffer from Cystic Fibrosis who fall in love. Now with CF, you need to stay six feet apart from another person with CF. I don’t usually read romance or contemporary if it’s not queer. However, I’ve been watching the frey life on YouTube for a few years now, and I found their videos as a comfort whenever I was sick or not feeling right.
Since Mary Frey has Cystic Fibrosis, I watched her battle it daily. So, I always on the lookout for things related to it. Now that I heard about this movie called Five Feet Apart which by the way, is coming out in theaters 15th March. This film is based on a book with the same title, and I just finished reading so here are my thoughts.
In this story, we meet Stella and Will who like I said, in the beginning, both have CF. They fall in love while being admitted to the same hospital ward. The writing in this is fantastic, so I’m looking forward to watching an excellent movie and while trying to learn more about this condition. One other book that has the main character with CF is Three Amazing Things About You by Jill Mansell (review here) If you haven’t guessed yet, I gave this book 5 stars out of 5.
