Now 60 years later I read about Stella, Will and Poe, normal teenagers, except there is nothing normal about their lives. They are in a hospital struggling to stay alive. The center of the novel is a love story. Stella and Will fall in love for the first time in their lives and grapple with the fact that it can be fatally dangerous to touch each other. But it’s also a story about friendship and it’s these friendships that are deeply moving: the friendship between Stella and Poe, who have spent months and months of their lives in adjoining hospital rooms, between Stella and her friends Mya and Camilla, who come to plan for their senior trip, which Stella won’t be able to attend, between Will and his friends Jason and Hope, who get an hour of private time in Will’s hospital room, and finally between Poe and his friend and lover Michael, who Poe pushes away because he doesn’t want him to get hurt. These friendships are special because they have nothing to do with pitying a person with a fatal disease. They are friends because they are important to each other. I love the kids and their story and I hope that there never will be another Ellen, who is an outsider because people are afraid that she’ll die on them.
(Also added pictures of book without cover for my fellow book worms who like the authenticity of a fresh plain backed book, love you guys!)
I sort of flew through this book. I had high expectations going in from the cover alone. With that being said, I did enjoy some parts. Stella was a sort of neat freak, controlling in a good way, character that meant well. Will was your cliche, I don’t care, rebel but he had his reasons behind it.
I didn’t like the writing style of this book. I felt like some phrases and idioms were used over and over, possibly for emphasis but I found it annoying. Especially with it being 3 authors behind the book, I definitely expected better. The story itself fell a bit short for me toward the end. I won’t give spoilers but in certain situations, there wasn’t enough detail given. Fingers crossed the movie is better.
