Twin sisters Kelsey and Michelle Maxfield look identical -- but they couldn't be more different. Kelsey is the captain of the dance team and loves her cute college boyfriend, Davis. Michelle is a free-spirited artist and flits from one guy to the next, the latest a soldier recently deployed to Afghanistan. Despite their differences, Kelsey and Michelle can't live without each other--until, in an instant, everything changes.
When Michelle dies in a car crash, Kelsey is left without her other half. As the only one who knows about her sister's boyfriend, Peter, Kelsey takes it upon herself to find him and tell him what happened to Michelle. But when she finally connects with Peter online, he thinks that Kelsey is Michelle and says that seeing her is the one thing keeping him alive. Caught up in the moment, Kelsey can't bear to break his heart with the truth, so she lets Peter believe that she is Michelle.
Kelsey keeps up the act, pretending to be her sister, and soon she can't deny that she's falling, hard, for the one boy she shouldn't want.
Lara Avery delivers a breathtaking story of love and loss that is guaranteed to sweep you off your feet.

About the Author:

Lara Avery is an editor at Revolver and the author of Anything But Ordinary, which Booklist praised for its "tender and lyrical prose." Raised in Kansas, where A Million Miles Away is set, she now lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 9 Up—Kelsey Maxfield's identical twin sister, Michelle, is killed in a car crash during their senior year just after Michelle's boyfriend, Peter, has been deployed to Afghanistan. While coping with the loss and trying to get back to normal, Kelsey stumbles upon a Skype session with Peter. Not sure how to tell him about Michelle's death, she decides to keep it a secret and leads him to believe that she is Michelle. Kelsey carries on the long distance relationship. Eventually, she gets up the courage to relay the message through a video, only to find out that Peter never receives it, which leads to more problems. While the story holds true to the deception between Kelsey and Peter and is somewhat romantic, other issues are introduced when Kelsey finally comes clean, making the plot feel uneven and disjointed in places. The adult characters are forever absent and more wrapped up in themselves than the teens. Wondering how Peter will react to the deception will keep readers interested. VERDICT Those who are looking for something similar to Nicholas Sparks will appreciate this light romance.—Karen Alexander, Lake Fenton High School, Linden, MI
