Description
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.
