The Distance Between Us by Kasie West

Pages: 320
Goodreads rating: 3.94/5 stars
My rating: 5/5 stars
Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary Romance


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.

My review:
I've been eyeing for this book for months because I was so curious with the title itself and it was surprisingly good! I mean really good that I'm willing to stay up late at night for reading. I love the story, the characters and the romance. It was really cute and a fast paced read. I'm thankful for this book as well for taking away my reading slump and consider one of the best YA Contemporary novels I've read.

I love Caymen's sense of humor and sarcasm. I couldn't help smiling and laughing like crazy while I'm reading this. I also love her sweet moments with Xander Spence. Gosh, I love him. He's one attractive oozing rich, swoon worthy guy!

One thing is for sure:Whether you are rich or poor, it will never be a hindrance when you love someone. Fight for him/her and just be honest to what you truly feel.

I highly recommended this!
