I loved Carol Lynch Williams’s The Chosen One. Miles from Ordinary is a different sort of novel but it, too, is an absolute cracker.
One summer’s day, Florida teen Lacey and her mother set off together: Lacey to a volunteer position at the library, and Angela to work as a supermarket check-out chick. It’s a big event that could improve their lives immensely.
The day does not go well.
This Gothic psychological thriller could almost be considered horror if it wasn’t so believable. Short and snappy, this riveting read is five-star quality. Buy now and save to read during a summer night’s storm.
