On the Fence by Kasie West

Pages: 296
Goodreads Rating: 4.01/ 5 stars
My rating: 4/5 stars
Genre: YA, Contemporary Romance

Summary (goodreads):

For sixteen-year-old Charlotte Reynolds, aka Charlie, being raised by a single dad and three older brothers has its perks. She can outrun, outscore, and outwit every boy she knows—including her longtime neighbor and honorary fourth brother, Braden. But when it comes to being a girl, Charlie doesn't know the first thing about anything. So when she starts working at chichi boutique to pay off a speeding ticket, she finds herself in a strange new world of makeup, lacy skirts, and BeDazzlers. Even stranger, she's spending time with a boy who has never seen her tear it up in a pickup game.

To cope with the stress of faking her way through this new reality, Charlie seeks late-night refuge in her backyard, talking out her problems with Braden by the fence that separates them. But their Fence Chats can't solve Charlie's biggest problem: she's falling for Braden. Hard. She knows what it means to go for the win, but if spilling her secret means losing him for good, the stakes just got too high.

My Review:

Review also posted on my Goodreads page.

When I've read The Distance Between Us, I know I should get another Kasie West's books. She is such a great contemporary romance author and I'm hooked with her writing style.

On the Fence is a light, and quick read. The story is really cute, although it didn't give me much of giddiness every time I read romance novels. It's still an enjoyable one. I like how it focuses on the character developments, and family. 

I find Charlie a bit annoying at first because she's whiny and childish. Her transition throughout the book gets better. She's more mature and refine. Somehow, I could relate to her because she is one girl who doesn't know much about the girly stuff (I learned applying/using make-up when I was in College.) and is into sports. If I will have a guy best friend whom I can date in the future, it will be Braden. He is so adorable and sweet. He is definitely a keeper.

Overall, this is an enjoyable one.
