Title: The Distance Between Us
Author: Kasie West
Series: n/a
Publisher: Harper Teen
Publication Date: July 2, 2013

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.


Why I'm waiting:  I loved Kasie West's debut novel Pivot Point, which, despite being a science fiction novel, had a distinctly contemporary vibe.  And since I already know the author can rock the contemporary, as well as the sci-fi, I am sure this novel will be pretty awesome.  The star-crossed lovers/kids from opposite sides of the track kind of romance always appeals to me, too, so I can't wait to see how that plays out.

What are you waiting on this week?  Feel free to share it in the comments or leave a link so I can stop by!

  19. OMG I want this book! Especially after finishing Pivot Point and loving it so much. EEP! I hope it is just as good. :)

  20. This sounds fabulous! I love plots where both characters don't instantly fall in love and this plot is a little different than I've read before. I also like the cover. I don't really care for the covers where there are two faces about to kiss. I like these types of covers much better. Thanks for sharing and stopping by my WOW! Another book for my tbr. :)

  22. Somehow in the back of my mind I knew that Kasie West had a completely different genre of book coming out. Cool!

    You do notice that I have not done a WoW since you stole my luck. I am plotting to get it back….

  23. This one seems to be a popular one isn't it?! Whoo I'm excited though. I really do like the cover too.

  25. YESSS!! I can't wait to read more from Kasie West! That woman is a genius and I'm sure this book will be just as amazing as Pivot Point! Even though Pivot Point was paranormal-esque, it really felt like a contemporary, so I just know that Kasie will rock a pure contemporary book.
