Review: The Miles Between
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.–From Goodreads
Destiny’s life has been anything but fair, but in Mary Pearson’s The Miles Between, she takes off with several boarding school classmates in search of just one fair day. This book is packed full of coincidences, confessions, and second chances. There’s apparently nothing like a good road trip for teenage protagonists to get to know themselves better, and Destiny’s trip will keep you curious about her secrets right up until the end.
Quotable Quote from The Miles Between
“Chance. It weaves through our lives like a golden thread, sometimes knotting, tangling, and breaking along the way. Loose threads are left hanging, but the in and out, the back and forth continues, the weaving goes on. It doesn’t stop.”
