Cover Crush: Miles Away from You by A.B. Rutledge

Miles Away from You by A.B. Rutledge has a simple yet complex cover when you look closer…I feel like this may also be the case for the story as well. I have a feeling this book is going to wreck me, but maybe in a good way. I love the white background and the dark image, and the way the silhouette has even more depth to it. This debut is tackling subjects of loss, grief, suicide, and love. It feels weird to say I am looking forward to reading this novel, but I am. Be sure to add Miles Away from You to your TBR for it’s release on March 20th, 2018.

It’s been three years since Miles fell for Vivian, a talented and dazzling transgender girl. Eighteen months since a suicide attempt left Vivian on life support. Now Miles isn’t sure who he is without her, but knows it’s time to figure out how to say goodbye.

He books a solo trip to Iceland but then has a hard time leaving the refuge of his hotel room. After a little push from Óskar, a local who is equal parts endearing and aloof, Miles decides to honor Vivian’s life by photographing her treasured Doc Martens standing empty against the surreal landscapes. With each step he takes, Miles finds his heart healing—even as he must accept that Vivian, still in a coma, will never recover.

Told through a series of instant messages to Vivian, this quirky and completely fresh novel explores love, loss, and the drastic distances we sometimes have to travel in order to move on.
