Praise for The Distance from Me to You
“A wilderness adventure dashed with romance and danger . . . readers should find it easy to relate to McKenna’s desire to take risks, prove her independence, and finish the trail at all costs.”–Publishers Weekly
”Gessner writes vividly of the trail and hiking . . . She brings McKenna and Sam to life as well-rounded characters, gradually building their relationship to a satisfying and realistic level. The star of the show here, however, is the Appalachian Trail and the adventures the teens experience on it.
Good romance, great wilderness.”–Kirkus Reviews
“Readers will enjoy the compelling, well-paced depiction of the adventure and lore of the AT, and they will be glad to find such a tough-minded, capable heroine in a realistic novel.”—BCCB
” A great add to YA collections, especially for those with a taste for the outdoors.”–SLJ
“[Gessner] has created a romance and adventure tale in one.”–VOYA
“This story combines adventure and romance in a great read, especially for anyone with an interest in hiking. Readers will enjoy this page-turner..”–School Library Connection
