This is a rare example in which both partners are manic pixie dream girls/boys to each other, changing their partner’s outlook and making them better people/enjoy life more EVEN THOUGH THEY’VE KNOWN EACH OTHER FOR SOME WEEKS! Stella Grant likes to be in control--even though her totally out of control lungs have sent her in and out of the hospital most of her life. The need to go 'over the top' is such a Hollywood trait and I hate how it's translated to influence today's fiction. He looked like the galaxy stealing away my galaxy, like the star shower when he was tearing up and then he left me blind taking my whole galaxy away when he left. Will is more headstrong, determined to live his short life to the full and battling against his mother and the hospital staff regarding his treatments.

im such a sucker for love stories about two people who demand more from life than what they are given. Stella finds out that Will is NOT doing his treatments, she decides to download the app that she created on Will's phone, Stella and Will facetime everyday to take their medicine together.

and although this story does touch on that message, that is surprisingly not why i enjoyed this book.

I love Will so much for doing the right thing and for letting Stella go so she could build a life with her new lungs. They always made sure that the other was alright and even when they were angry at each other they still tried to find a way to talk it out. They are described as out of breath and coughing but no description of the ick factor that is so common for those with CF. 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.

its one of those books where you walk away, knowing its missing something that could have made the story truly great (maybe because its based on a screenplay and not an original novel? not an emotional impact from a loving story, like i thought, but a new perspective of how often i take my health for granted. I didn’t feel any other than Stella and Will were particularly rounded out, but I can appreciate that the focus is on the impossible circumstances.

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. A youtuber who reaches out to the rest of the world sharing about the condition and keeping updates as she goes on struggling with the frequent hospital stay and vigorous treatment routine. I'd much rather experience a truly poignant romance that evolves over time during the plot of a good book. It also gives us an interest in them, because now we have a connection to it, through the characters. So I could be in left-field here (however I take anxiety drugs and have a chronic pain condition, so I'm doubting much has changed); but anytime you have many drugs involved in your system there are side effects.I could understand Poe’s fear of a normal relationship, because no matter how much you want to sugarcoat it, in the end his boyfriend would have always had to deal with CF too. So, yeah, it seems CF is finally getting the treatment as an illness to be exploited for feel-good media that cancer has been enduring since the 70s and Segal’s Love Story.
