The Miles Between

Pearson, Mary. The Miles Between. New York: Henry Holt and Company, 2009.

Destiny wants a perfectly fair day, a day when the good guys win and all is well in the world. And she gets it - Destiny and her three friends escape their boarding school and begin a journey across the state. Throughout their journey, Destiny learns secrets about each of her friends, but will she be willing to share her secret with them?

Those of you familiar with the story I Am the Cheese will recognize the surprise ending technique in this story. No, Destiny is not locked in a mental hospital, but what she does reveal will surprise you.

This book is a good read. It was enjoyable, it was entertaining, and I am almost convinced I need to purchase a lambadoodle. Almost.
