Today I am reviewing miles from nowhere, the third book in the roadside assistance series by Amy Clipston.
Here is a brief synopsis:
Her heart, her dreams… or none of the above?
Chelsea Morris has always been responsible, dependable, and focused on her dreams of fashion design, a dream that will officially begin come fall, when she leaves for college in New York City.
As she settles into her role as the lead designer for the local summer stock theater group, she decides to make the most of her last summer in North Carolina. But with her best friend Emily busy working late and spending time with Zander, and tensions with Chelsea’s boyfriend, Todd, running high, the summer she envisioned seems to be falling flat.
Then Dylan joins the latest summer production. There’s something about the college boy that makes her feel free and alive, and soon she’s broken up with Todd, and is sneaking out late to meet Dylan at parties and breaking rules at the playhouse.
But before she knows it, her exciting nights are interfering with her job, her role on the play, as well as her relationship with Emily and with her parents. Worse, Chelsea finds herself feeling more and more estranged from God.
As the summer becomes wilder than she ever dreamed, Chelsea must decide if her heart is leading her in the right direction after all.”
This is the third story I’ve read in this series… and I enjoyed it every bit as much as the others!
WOW! Chelsea is the dependable, responsible sort, but when her best friend is too busy for her, and things aren’t working out the way she had hoped with Todd, her boyfriend, her summer has some unexpected twists and turns.
This story will definitely appeal to young adults – who are probably going through the very things Chelsea is dealing with in her life. It will also appeal to adults, as it reminds us of our own youth.
Amy Clipston does a remarkable job writing young adult stories… I don’t want to give anything away, but believe me, this is a wonderful series for young and old alike.
Amy is an amazing writer!
I’m hoping in the years to come that Amy will be able to publish more YA novels… teenagers need to read and hear her sage advice, hidden inside her novels.
God bless you!
