WoW [14]





Waiting on Wednesday (WoW) is a weekly event hosted by Jill @
Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.


This week’s WoW feature is:
The Distance Between Us
Expected publication: July 2, 2013
Publisher: HarperTeen

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 CAN'T WAIT...
The reason I can't wait to read this...Kasie West. I also can't wait for her first book Pivot Point to come out either. From reviews alone I think I found my new favorite author. I love how both books seem so different. I love a great comtempo and this one seems like it won't disappoint.

So what are you all waiting on? Please share.

  1. Her mother rather have her be with a rocker than a rich guy? What kind of mother is she? Weird. Sounds really good. I didn't know it was by West. Anticipating this a little more.
