About this deal

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. 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. Will is just waiting until he turns 18, so he can walk away from the hospital and the drug trial, and live (and die) on his own terms. 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. I don't know as well as I do know why I kept comparing this one with The Fault in Our Stars movie (sorry to say that I haven't read the book by John Green yet, forgive me) and yes, somehow it reminded me of Turtles All The Way Down by John Green here and there.

But no matter how much control she tries to take, she can't avoid frequent extended trips to the hospital—and try as she might, she can't protect everyone around her.Each and every person with CF experiences this disease in our own way, from its severity to our symptoms, to how we feel about the disease and its impact on our lives. It also gives us an interest in them, because now we have a connection to it, through the characters. I know Claire Wineland was a great help in the making of this story and I know many CFers are grateful for the representation in media. When she's not writing, she is watching old black and white movies, listening to Doris Day on repeat, or reading ancient Greek plays.

I was totally taken with this story and this tale of these two star-crossed lovers, Stella and Will as they totally consumed my thoughts and my heart. Although they do get things right about CF (the treatments, especially), the ugly symptoms are conveniently brushed away. Both of their situations and feelings towards each other rang true and I loved how I learned so much more about Cystic Fibrosis.I know I'll sob in the theater just as I did on the airplane (thank goodness the lights were off), and I'll think about how much I take for granted. When she’s not writing, she is watching old black and white movies, listening to Doris Day on repeat, or reading ancient Greek plays. En A Dos Metros De Ti nos encontramos con la historia de Stella y Will, dos chicos que tienen fibrosis quística y que han vivido la mitad de sus vidas en hospitales y en medio de tratamientos para ganar un poco más de tiempo. They actually say to each other that they are in love so much so that Stella is willing to give up her lung transplant for a brooding hero she’s known for some weeks. She's a big fan of to-do lists (she loves crossing things off) and she hosts her own video series about CF on YouTube.
