The relationship between Stella and Will progresses as Stella climbs all the way to the roof, risking her life to help Will in his endangered situation. (In this part, Stella also realizes she forgets to wear a mask) Will also meets Poe for the first time, sharing how he has B-cepacia and CF. They both bond over both their relationships with Stella, but also how nothing major has gone down between them as CFers always have to keep six feet apart. (Poe thinks Stella likes Will and that the feeling is mutual) Continuing, Stella shares about her app development. Her app helps to remind CFers/patients when they need to take their medications, and since her recent hospitalization she has been testing it out. Stella encourages Will to take his treatments seriously, skyping Will every time (helps Stella relax, to ensure Will is doing his treatment daily) they need to put their vests on or take medications.
I think that a potential idea for my literary analysis essay is to write about how this book Five Feet Apart is not based on a real story but instead inspired by a documentary series Baldoni (Baldoni is the director of the original Five Feet Apart movie) was working on. It features people who have faced a terminal illness (such as CF), who during their medical journey have strived to make a positive impact. Also, how Baldoni learned about CF from a woman he was working alongside during this time. The book Five Feet Apart is actually based on the movie that was produced, as the director tries to raise awareness of the dangers CF patients face with cross-contamination, as during the production they took notes from real-life patients and got medical advice and tips from professionals.
