Author: Rachael Lippincott
What if you fell in love with someone but could never physically touch that person? That’s the big question at the heart of the new YA novel Five Feet Apart by first-time author Rachael Lippincott, written with Mikki Daughtry and Tobias Iaconis (Simon & Schuster) which debuted on the December 9 New York Times bestseller list after its first week on sale.
The book is Lippincott’s adaptation based on Daughtry and Iaconi’s screenplay for the feature film of the same title, set for release on March 22, 2019 from CBS Films and Lionsgate and starring Cole Sprouse (Riverdale) and Haley Lu Richardson (The Edge of Seventeen).
One big bump for the title is surely the official movie trailer, released November 2, with nearly 5.5 million views on the CBS Films upload alone in addition to views on other YouTube uploads. Other early sales drivers include social media graphics used by S&S to promote the book, a three-week author blog tour for Lippincott, a launch event at a local bookstore, and a mention for the book in the December issue of Seventeen magazine.
The New York Times attention has helped push Five Feet Apart into its fourth printing for a total of 110,000 copies in print to date. S&S will additionally publish a movie tie-in edition in February, which is currently scheduled for its own 90,000-copy initial run.
This book I really liked, is very easy to read and can know more about this disease FC and a typical love story, and the story can be a cliché for how it ends, there is not as much drama as previous stories and is also easy to understand , the end did not please me much, could finish another way and a little happier, but as always sometimes not all pink. If you like love stories and suffer a little, this book you might like, but if you don’t like that don’t read it! You may be wasting your time on it.
The cover is so gorgeous, I love it so much! The colors and the illustrations.
and of course I’ll watch the movie, see what if it’s true to the book.
