Sabrina Carpenter (Girl Meets World) is set to star in and produce a film adaption of The Distance From Me To You.
The book written by Marina Gressner starts out as a romance story but quickly becomes a thriller when two teens, who meet and fall in love, on the treacherous Appalachian Trail. Recent high school grad McKenna, 17, is determined to hike the entire trail, from Maine to Georgia, even when her best friend Courtney backs out of their trip.
Meanwhile, Sam is on the same trail, hiking neck and neck with McKenna and escaping an abusive family. They fall in love and when their punch-drunk love leads them off the trail, McKenna has to persevere in a way she never thought possible to beat the odds and save both their lives.
Carpenter who is known for both her singing and acting recently appeared in the critically acclaimed YA to film adaption The Hate U Give.
