Stella Grant has Cystic Fibrosis, and is currently missing out on her class trip to Cabo because of it. But there’s nothing she’ll do to risk infection and the possibility of a lung transplant. She likes to be in control and she knows the rules, six feet apart from any other CF patient at all times. So when she meets Will Newman, a fellow patient who is completely out of control, she does the only thing she can; organise his med cart and help him with his treatments. Will is treading water until he turns eighteen and can discharge himself from hospital and go see the world before he has to leave it. But meeting Stella begins to change all that for him. With all that CF has stolen from them, they steal something back; 1 foot of distance, and begin to fall in love.
