This is Waiting on Wednesday hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine.


Title: The Distance Between Us
Author: Kasie West
Expected Publication: July 2, 2013
Publisher: Harper Teen
Genre: YA Contemporary

Seventeen-year-old Caymen Meyers studies the rich like her own personal science experiment, and after years of observation she’s pretty sure they’re only good for one thing—spending money on useless stuff, like the porcelain dolls in her mother’s shop.

So when Xander Spence walks into the store to pick up a doll for his grandmother, it only takes one glance for Caymen to figure out he’s oozing rich. Despite his charming ways and that he’s one of the first people who actually gets her, she’s smart enough to know his interest won’t last. Because if there’s one thing she’s learned from her mother’s warnings, it’s that the rich have a short attention span. But Xander keeps coming around, despite her best efforts to scare him off. And much to her dismay, she’s beginning to enjoy his company.

She knows her mom can’t find out—she wouldn’t approve. She’d much rather Caymen hang out with the local rocker who hasn’t been raised by money. But just when Xander’s attention and loyalty are about to convince Caymen that being rich isn’t a character flaw, she finds out that money is a much bigger part of their relationship than she’d ever realized. And that Xander’s not the only one she should’ve been worried about.

I read Pivot Point by Kasie West not too long ago and loved it! When I saw she has a YA Contemporary coming out next, I knew I have to read it. I know this will be a little different than Pivot Point, but I enjoyed her writing and relationships so much. I have a feeling The Distance Between Us is going to be great!

What about you? What are you waiting on? Does TTBU sound like something you’d like?

        I’m in the valley, but Sequoia NP is practically my backyard. King’s is just a tad north. Yeah, love it up there, though. We used to ditch school and go hang out by the river. lol
