The Distance Between Us by Kasie West | Book Review

The Distance Between Us by Kasie West 

Reading Group: High School+

Personal Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars

Given Summary: Money can't buy a good first impression.

Seventeen-year-old Caymen Meyers learned early that the rich are not to be trusted. And after years of studying them from behind the cash register of her mom's porcelain-doll shop, she has seen nothing to prove otherwise. Enter Xander Spence—he's tall, handsome, and oozing rich. Despite his charming ways and the fact that he seems to be 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 just when Xander's loyalty and attentiveness 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. With so many obstacles standing in their way, can she close the distance between them?

Cover: I feel like this cover is a little misleading because both characters are so well dressed.  Not that people who don't have a lot of money can't have nice clothing, but I think the cover would be more effective if Caymen was wearing jeans or something more casual.  

My Review: I enjoyed this book.  It can be a struggle to date someone who isn't in the same financial situation as you because there are just things your families do differently, especially these two because their financial situations are so different from each other.  Also, there is nothing like a family secret that gives a book a good plot twist.  Ironically, the plot twist in this book has to do with money!  And Xander is the one to uncover it!  Craziness.  This book was a nice read and a quick read.  It would be a nice one to read on the beach or outside somewhere.  It was kind of a Romeo & Juliet themed book because Caymen's mom doesn't want her involved with the rich and be at risk of getting close to her grandparents.  And I feel like rich people mingle amongst the rich so for Xander to bring this poor girl as a date to anything is not something that was going to go over well with everyone in his family.  However, you don't always chose who you fall in love with and at the end of the day it doesn't always matter what your family thinks, if they're being unreasonable.
