Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Destiny Faraday makes a point of keeping her distance from her classmates at Hedgebrook Academy. Her number-one rule: Don't get attached. But one day, unexpectedly finding a car at their disposal, Destiny and three of her classmates embark on an unauthorized road trip.

They're searching for one fair day — a day where the good guy wins and everything adds up to something just and right. Their destination: Langdon, a town that Destiny's unsuspecting companions hope will hold simply a day of fun. But, as Destiny says, "Things are not always what they seem." Only she knows that Langdon holds far more than that — a deep secret she has never shared with anyone.

The Miles Between explores the wonder and magic of a very real world where chance, mystery, and secrets abound.

Beginning this book, I was unsure whether I would continue it or not. I'm not usually into the whole 'rebellious teen' thing, but I pushed myself to finish the first few chapters. I didn't stop after that. This book is very well written and put together with a good flow. The twist at the end (which I refuse to further explain because I don't want to give away the book's ending!) was so surprising, I actually gasped out loud. I definitely recommend the book.
