I remember days where Scott would tell us the side effects of the drugs were wearing him down faster than his limited breathing. with happiness and joy and loss and heartbreak in it, a beautiful love story between two people who can't even get close enough to touch one another. What if Will and Stella could steal back just a little bit of the space their broken lungs have stolen from them? When she’s not writing, she is watching old black and white movies, listening to Doris Day on repeat, or reading ancient Greek plays.

Most everyone with CF goes through a period of not wanting to do their treatments but it’s not something I’ve seen talked about before outside of the CF community.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. There are also lots of sites, stories and social media written by first-hand CF sufferers that will be far more meaningful than my thoughts and comments. My husband begged me to stop because all the neighborhood’s army of dogs joined me and began howling. They don’t vomit, they don’t throw up mucus, their coughing always stops when it’s convenient, they’re not underweight. Stella suffers from a genetic disease Cystic Fibrosis (CF),and is doing to keep up with her meds until she can get a new pair of lungs.

On the one hand I think it’s important to raise awareness for diseases like CF and on the other hand I know that a kind of forbidden love sob story might not be the right way to do so. Obviously I’d heard of it, but I didn’t realise that I only knew vaguely what it was prior to reading this book.I’m hopeful that this book will at least get people to pay attention to a disease that has largely been unknown.

Leer una historia de amor entre dos personas que, literalmente, no pueden tocarse porque sus vidas corren peligro es de lo más duro que he hecho últimamente. One day, Stella is on her way to visit the NICU when she walks past a room and notices someone new, that would be Will Newman. Will has been in and out of hospitals all over the world, and he's tired of it all, especially his mother's single-minded crusade to help him beat a dangerous bacterial infection. Will, a reckless boy also suffering from CF, is doing his best to stir up problems and refuse to take his meds. Instead Lord addresses the intricacies and messiness of mortality in a genuine and heartwarming way.Can't really say much about the plot itself because nothing happened (which is fair, I only read like 80 pages). And of course resemblances with John Green’s “Fault in our stars” ( they caged me after reading this book and sent me to rehab for ugly criers!
