"The Space Between Us is a stirring story of growing up, maturing, first love, loss, and second chances. Nothing would make me happier than to hear about a follow up to this story. Although I have no complaints about the story and its ending, I feel like there is so much more in store for Charlie and Asher and I would just love to read what's next for these two. This may have been my first Anie Michaels novel, but I know for a fact that it will not be the last." ~ Michelle, Nose Stuck in a Book
"The Space Between Us is a fantastic novel, told over time- with a well thought out plot and lovable characters- and interesting secondary characters as well." ~ Allison East, Three Chicks and Their Books
