Five Feet Apart by Rachael Lippincott
Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers
Publication Date: November 20, 2018
Stella and Will are teens living with cystic fibrosis (CF) who happened to land in the same hospital for various treatments. Their lives are held hostage by the disease and the need to stay alive by staying at least six feet apart from anyone who could infect them with germs that will worsen their condition. When these two meet and feel the bond between them, they have to decide how close they are willing to risk coming in contact with each other, both physically and emotionally.
