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.

Beryl Young is the author of several critically acclaimed books for children, including Wishing Star Summer, Charlie: A Home Child’s Life in Canada, Would Someone Please Answer the Parrot!, and Follow the Elephant. In addition to the Chocolate Lily award, which Young won in 2011 for Follow the Elephant, her books have been nominated for several awards, including the Red Cedar (BC), the Red Maple (ON), the Diamond Willow (SK), the Hackmatack Award (Atlantic Canada), the Silver Moonbeam Medal for pre-teen fiction (US), and the IODE Violet Downey Book Award for Canadian Children’s Literature. Born in Yorkton, Saskatchewan, Young now lives in Vancouver. She has three grown children and four grandchildren.

With the feel of books like Little House on the Prairie, this book is actually based on a true story. It is a story full of heartache and struggles, depicting life on the prairies in a small town. It is also the story of two best friends who learn through trial and error about life, family and best friends. Beryl Young painted a realistic insight into life in rural Canada. Miles To Go is a story that captivates the reader and makes you think. A story that stays with you.

- Goodreads

What [Maggie and Anna] have to learn is hard, heartening, and profound. Young, who lives in Victoria but comes from Yorkton, has crafted a story that shows young people’s vulnerability but doesn’t let them off easily.
