The Distance from Me to You

The Distance from Me to You
By Marina Gessner
G. P. Putnam's Sons, 2015. 339 pgs. Young Adult

McKenna, newly graduated from high school, has plans to spend a good portion of her gap year hiking the Appalachian Trail with her best friend Courtney. However, shortly after Courtney gets back together with her boyfriend, McKenna is on a solo hike. She prepared well with all of the gear that she will need for the adventure, however she didn't know she would need to prepare her heart for who she will meet on the trail.

This was a fun novel featuring a strong female character with a determination to see the hike through to the end. It was nice to see McKenna mature throughout the book and discover for herself what she was capable of.
