Finalist, 2019 Geoffrey Bilson Award for Historical Fiction for Young People

A powerful and poignant story of two young girls' friendship, family, loss, and loyalty, set in 1940s Saskatchewan.

"Beryl Young's novel Miles to Go is sparse, poetic and, at times, perfectly heart wrenching. It subtly captures the coming of age of two young prairie girls. The beauty of this story is in the little things, the life things. In short: it's wonderful."--Arthur Slade, Governor General's Award-winning author of Dust

"This is a tender story about two friends dealing with tragic personal loss. Beryl Young captures a snapshot of small town life in the 1940s. Lovingly told, realistic, sad, and, like life, often very funny."--Harriet Zaidman, teacher-librarian and writer, Winnipeg, Manitoba

Miles to Go is the story of a friendship between two twelve-year-old girls in a small Saskatchewan town. In the spring of 1948, each girl faces a heavy personal loss and challenges that threaten their friendship. Through a hard few months the girls learn the meaning of loyalty and the value of keeping a promise. Loosely based on the author's own experiences of growing up in rural Saskatchewan, this book's timeless themes and authentic emotion will speak to young readers.
