BOOKANISTAS: The Distance Between Us

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.

Sometimes you just want a really fun, sweet romantic comedy. (Or all the time, if you're me.) If you're ever in that sort of mood, pick up this book. It's exactly what you're expecting when you're looking for a boy and girl from different worlds fall in love sort of story, and it's so much fun to read.

What really made this book stand out for me was the voice. Kasie West has a fantastic, funny voice, full of wit and back and forth banter that actually had me laughing out loud at some points. I had a blast reading this book because these characters, particularly Caymen, were just so much fun. 

The relationship and romance between these two characters is just adorable, too. I had a smile on my face every time they were on the page together. I read the whole thing in one sitting, just because I didn't want this romance to be over with. So cute and adorable.

Sometimes you just want a tasty piece of candy that is just what you expect it to be. This book is that piece of candy. It will leave you with a smile on your face when you're in the mood for something sweet.
