    Roadside Assistance is one of my favorite books Ive ever read, I freaked when I heard about a sequel for it, then finding that the sequel would have another book making it a trilogy, I was, needless to say, excited. I had many emotions while reading Miles from Nowhere. (Most of the times I wanted to shake Chelsea to wake her up, but since that really wasnt possible...) It was hard for me to read about Chelsea doing things I know she normally wouldnt do and since I couldnt relate to the peer pressure, my rating was lower. But that doesnt change that I still enjoyed it! How Miss Amy Clipston does it Im still not quite sure, but whenever I read her books they always have me exclaiming or sighing or running around the room. ;)

    *BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.

    I received a copy of this book from Z-Squad in exchange for my review.

    Miles From Nowhere, is a story written about a Chelsea, a girl who has it all. It is the summer after her senior year, she has a supporting family, boyfriend and friends. She was given an opportunity to work on the community play. She hopes to get a recommendation from her work with the production. As Chelsea works on the set costumes, she is faced with the pressures of working her last summer, when she wants to make it count before she heads to college. She meets this new guy on the set and then is faced with the peer pressures that come with life in general. Hanging out with the new guy, redefining who she is while isolating herself from her true friends is where Chelsea finds herself trying to fit in. When an accident wakes her up and reminds her of who she is and what is important she seeks forgiveness for her actions. What a great story of some of the challenges we may face, of how the truth will set us free when we fail and how forgiveness is a necessary and needed part.

    For Chelsea Morris life is perfect. It is the summer between high school and college and things couldn't get any better. She has great friends, a part-time job she likes, a wonderful boyfriend, and to top it off, she was just named head costumer for the local theater's production of Grease. She even has an assistant!

    Things begin to change though when Chelsea's friends and boyfriend are stuck working a lot of hours at their jobs and she finds herself alone or at the theater. There she meets Dylan, one of the actors in the play. Dylan could be described as the bad boy of the theater and he sets his sights on Chelsea. Even though she is warned about Dylan's reputation from many people she is drawn to him. What starts out as an innocent friendship soon changes into a summer Chelsea won't forget. The once responsible Chelsea soon finds herself making decisions she knows aren't right but can't seem to stop herself. Her family and friends notice the change in her but she shrugs it off to have her summer of fun. Can she stop her downward spiral before it's too late?

    I was given an advanced copy of this book to read and must admit I was a little hesitant at first. After all, I'm not exactly a young adult and I wasn't sure if I would enjoy this book much or at all. Just a few pages in my mind was made up--I loved this book! This book captured my attention from the first page and I couldn't put the book down. When life interrupted my reading I couldn't wait to get back to reading to see what was going to happen next.

    Miles from Nowhere is a great story told as just the right pace to keep the reader interested. The characters are well developed and authentic. The book has a good message that is delivered in a way that isn't preachy or overbearing. Amy has a way of writing that makes you care about the characters and what is happening in their lives.

    Miles from Nowhere is a good read for the young adult and not-so-young adult alike.

    I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion which I have provided.f

    This review was written for Miles From Nowhere.
    This best selling author, Amy Clipston, of Amish Fiction , the "Kauffman Amish Bakery series, also writes the BEST young adult books!! Although classed as for youth, I thoroughly enjoyed this book! It is truly a winner for all readers!! I am certainly NOT young, but I loved this book!

    The main character, Chelsea has always been a dependable , responsible girl who was working diligently on her dream of becoming a fashion designer. Her arrival in New York City to start college will be a time of great excitement. In her last summer in North Carolina, she has settled into her role as the lead designer for the local summer stock theatre group easily and eagerly, ready to tackle a challenging yet worthy job. The one down side to the summer was that her best friend, Emily , was always busy working late and spending time with Zander. The tensions with Chelsea's boyfriend, Todd , were running high. It appeared that her summer was NOT going to be all that she had imagined. Her plans were falling flat!

    Then, entering the scene, is the handsome, popular Dylan, who joined the summer theatre group. He's a college boy who makes Chelsea feel free and alive. Chelsea believes the best thing to do is to break up with Todd and soon she is doing the unthinkable kinds of things for this fine Christian girl. She is sneaking out at night to meet Dylan at parties that are certainly not of the kind that a decent young woman would attend. Before she knows it, her late nights and other activities are interfering with her job, her role in the play as well as her family and friend relationships. Chelsea is wandering farther and farther from God and His plan for her life.

    The summer becomes wilder than she had ever dreamed. Will Chelsea realize her dreams are falling apart. Will she listen to the quiet voice trying to lead her in the right direction???

    The characters in this book were so realistic and typical of this day and age, that I easily identified with them. They became my children, who I wanted to at times, shake them , encourage them, hug them , as well as give them some advice. As I am the mother of a young person, I am fully aware of the temptations out in the world and in this book, felt I wanted to take the parent role!!

    The plot moves quickly and keeps the reader engaged throughout the book. You feel the struggles and mixed emotions that Chelsea deals with. This is the world that our young people deal with on a daily basis. I had no idea which path Chelsea would choose to follow. Her adventures were somewhat frightening however excellent learning experiences. But would she use them as such??

    This was a fantastic read, not only for young adults but for parents as well. A good book for discussion with your teens involving keeping your Christian values as well as how your decisions can affect your future.

    This book was provided by the author in exchange for a fair and honest review.

    "I know Youre disappointed in me, Lord. I feel like Ive gotten in too deep, and I dont know how to get out. I dont know who I am or where I belong. But I know one thing for sure, God. I miss my close relationship with my mom, and Todd, and You. Please lead me back to You. Amen."

    Book: Miles From Nowhere by Amy Clipston, Zondervan Publishers, 2014

    Genre: Realistic Fiction

    Target Audience: Girls 13-19

    Subjects: Family relationships, dating relationships, prayer, Gods Will, Alcohol

    Summary: Its Chelseas last summer before college! Its time to live a little! Thats what Dylan the super hot guy that seems really in to her, and Kylie her new friend and partner in the costuming department of the theater, keep telling her. And it does seem as though her parents are being unreasonable and Todd, her boyfriend is never available anymore. So why not have some fun? Its just some parties, a little bit of alcohol. Its no big deal. Shes still making all the costumes, still working at the diner a lot, still going to church on Sundays, still helping take care of her little brothers. Nothing is changing at least not all at once.

    Notes: A powerful story of a teen girl struggling to find her identity, Miles From Nowhere is a companion story to Destination Unknown and Roadside Assistance. This one tells the story of a friend and neighbor of some of the characters from the last stories. This one pictures a girl who gives rebellion a chance. Sneaking out after her parents are in bed, lying to her mom, getting drunk, offending her boyfriend by flirting with someone else, till he breaks up with her, performing poorly at her job, and failing to follow through on her agreements Chelsea goes all out. Choices have consequences for good or for bad and Chelsea is going to find out what some of the consequences of bad choices can be. There is also a spiritual emphasis as Chelsea recognizes that her choices are drawing her farther away from her relationship with God as well and desires to turn that around.

    Spiritual Content Recommendation Scale: 4/5

    Reviewer: J:-)mi

    Romans 1:21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened.
