Five Feet Apart by Rachael Lippincott, Mikki Daughtry, and Tobias Iaconis | Book Review

I read Five Feet Apart to prepare for the film, not realizing this novel was written AFTER the screenplay. Thankfully, this actually expands upon the screenplay and adds much needed detail, extra emotion and nuance, and makes subtle changes. The story revolves around two teens, Stella and Will. They both have cystic fibrosis (CF), with Will having… Continue reading Five Feet Apart by Rachael Lippincott, Mikki Daughtry, and Tobias Iaconis | Book Review
