Waiting On: The Distance Between Us by Kasie West (25)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Breaking the Spine

Title: The Distance Between Us
Author: Kasie West
Release Date: July 2nd, 2013
Publisher: HarperTeen
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.

 This sounds like your typical rich meets poor story but those last paragraph over there does A WHOLE LOT to make me interested. So does the cover. LOOK AT THAT COVER. I really like how the title of the book is The Distance Between Us and the two characters are standing so close together and holding hands on the cover. very telling, story. Very telling.


Have you guys heard of this one? Better yet, have you read PIVOT POINT, the Kasie West book that came out earlier this year? I haven't, but I hear GREAT THINGS about it, which gets me all excited to read both books! Let me know what you think in the comments below!
