Waiting on Wednesday: The Distance Between Us


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.

Here is my WoW pick this week (click title for the Goodreads page):

The Distance Between Us
Release date: July 2nd, 2013
Publisher: HarperTeen
Pre-Order: Amazon | Book Depository
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.

Kasie West has a Contemporary YA book coming out! I was really giddy when I found out about this. One of the things I loved about her debut, Pivot Point, was the contemporary feel to the story despite it being a Paranormal. Now that Kasie has plunged into the contemp YA, I am more than excited to get my hands on her upcoming book.

  4. I LOVED Pivot Point, and now that you have me thinking about, I realize that PP did have a distinct contemporary feel to it! Now I feel even more confident that The Distance Between US will rock :) Thanks and great pick.
