Equal parts romance and thriller, the novel, which is published by Penguin, tells the story of two teens who meet and fall in love whilst hiking along the Appalachian Trail. However, they soon discover that greater than the physical danger of the treacherous hike is the danger of their lives going in very different directions… 

 

While Gessner’s first and currently only novel was met with both mixed and generally positive reviews on Goodreads from fans in response, most of the ones that reside in the negative revolve around the fans’ disconnect due to lack of interest in camping, hiking, and other activities of the like, so if you want to read the novel before seeing the upcoming film because of its outdoorsy elements, then this is the book for you!

 

 

Girl Meets World star Sabrina Carpenter will both produce the film and star in the lead female role of McKenna Berney. Since the Boy Meets World continuation ended in early 2017, Carpenter has starred in the adaptation of Angie Thomas’s hit novel The Hate U Give, and will be in the upcoming films Short History of the Long Road and Work It. She is currently voice-acting on the Disney XD cartoon Milo Murphy’s Law.

In fact, Danielle Fishel, who starred alongside Carpenter in Girl Meets World, as well as producing the Disney Channel hit sitcom, will also help out behind the scenes as the movie’s executive producer, bringing the two actresses together again.

Sabrina Carpenter fans: if you thought Maya Hart was a wild child, then you have yet to meet McKenna Berney…
