Waiting On Wednesday: The Distance Between Us

WoW is weekly meme created by Jill at Breaking The Spine in which bloggers can share books they're excited to get soon :)
 
 
 
THE DISTANCE BETWEEN US
by Kasie West
 
 

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.
 
 
Y'all I love this synopsis. I love love, that's why I read so much Contemp.
 I can't wait to watch Xander & Caymen's relationship bloom.
 
(and who else hates porcelain dolls?! *shudders*)

  2. This hasn't been on my radar until I read Pivot Point by Kasie West. I LOVED it and I especially loved the contemporary world she wrote about in that novel so I am excited to read this one!

    1. I haven't read Pivot Pivot YET. Some early reviews I read weren't digging it so I kind of forgot about it, but now...
