{My thoughts} – I have got to admit that I’d went to see the movie before I’d read this book. I couldn’t help myself. It was a must watch movie on my list of movies I’d been waiting to see that were coming out. The movie made me cry, and I have no shame in admitting that one little bit.

Stella is a sweet girl that has a lot going on in her life. Her parents are divorced, she’s learning how to accept that life doesn’t always turn out how you’d want. She’s been sick her whole life and she’s made it to this point, to the point where she’s on the list and waiting for a new set of lungs. She’s missed out on so many trips with family and friends because she is always sick.

She likes to be in control. She has to know that things are being done the way they should. She has to know that everyone is trying their best. She has to know that she did everything she could to hold everyone around her together. As you read the book you will learn she seems to be the glue. She keeps her family together, she keeps her friends together, without her, will they all still be together?

For as long as Stella can remember she has been going to the same hospital and having treatments with many of the same people. Poe a friend of hers that also has Cystic Fibrosis is also in the hospital the same time she during the duration of the book. They catch up and we learn all about their routines. Although something is different during this stay. During this stay there is a new guy in the halls. His name is Will and he is really really sick. He lost his spot on the transplant list and is doing a clinical trial.

Stella and him end up getting close. They get to know each other and they become close friends. They become more. Then end up falling in love. I’m not sure I quite understand how they could fall in love so quickly as the book takes place over the course of a couple of weeks, but they do. However, the things they do after they meet, its just like wow, what am I reading here? Why would they do that? Why would she do that?

I found this book to be incredibly well written. It pulls the reader directly into the world of Stella, Poe and Will. It makes you want to know more, it makes you want to know what happens to them after everything is said and done. The end of the movie didn’t really sum up what happened to them after everything. The books has two final chapters that tells you what happened. I love having a sense of closure and reading the book helped to give me something that I didn’t get from seeing the movie. I have always said and will continue to say in cases like this – THE BOOK WAS BETTER!

About the Book:
Kyle and Kimberly had the perfect relationship, finally as graduation hits they are excited to start their new chapter at UCLA. Until the unthinkable happens. Losing Kimberly paid its toll on Kyle to the point where he didn’t know how he was going to live without her. Then there was Marley. Marley changes Kyle’s life for the better and helps him find his way to enjoying life again. Until she disappears and Kyle’s life is forever changed, again.

Review:
This book had me saying WTF like 20 times. You go from feeling for Kyle and his grief to falling in love with the connection he makes with Marley. There are a bunch of twists and turns in the end that had me reading and reading until it was over. It definitely threw my heart for a loop. I would 100 percent recommend.… (més)

Students love books about kids who are sick and fall in love, so I ordered this novel. As an adult, I did a lot of eye rolling, but so many students are going to really love this novel.

Stella is dying. She's been dying her entire life, for she has CF (cystic fibrosis) and is now down to 35% lung capacity and in hopes of a lung transplant. A type A personality, Stella developed an app to help people with health conditions to know when and what medications to take. She has lists everywhere for tasks she wants and needs to accomplish. She even planned the senior trip to Cabo for her classmates. Unfortunately, Stella develops a sore throat and must check into her home away from home, the hospital, instead of travel with her friends. She does everything she is supposed to do for her CF. She knows that her parents will not survive her death, so she is determined to live for as long as possible. Her best CF friend, Poe, ends up in the hospital with her, so she has someone to talk to. She knows every inch of the hospital, for she really grew up there. She's well known and well liked.

One rule that cannot be broken concerns staying six feet away from other CF patients. Stella and Poe abide by this rule religiously. A new CF patient, Will, comes onto the ward, but he has B. cepacia in addition to CF. This condition is serious and has no treatment. Will's mom has taken him all over the world for new treatments. He was supposed to get a lung transplant, but the B. cepacia ended any hope of lungs. Will is two weeks away from his 18th birthday and plans on living life until he dies. No more traveling the world via windows in hospitals. This is the last trial drug he is trying and then he's finished.

Stella finds Will annoying. He doesn't do anything he's supposed to do. She eventually gets him to do all of his protocols by explaining that she stresses out. He doesn't want her upset, so he follows his regimen and actually feels better. Problem is he and Stella start liking each others. In no world can they ever get closer than six feet apart. Stella decides that she is claiming twelve inches and they'll stay five feet apart. The novel is more than a romance; you also learn about their families and how CF affects everyone, all relationships. It's all very dramatic.

There are mature scenes and topics discussed, so I would recommend this novel to our more mature middle school readers.
