Review: The Distance Between Us by Kasie West
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
Caymen could often get on my nerves.
Yeah I started with that because its true, she often got on my nerves. I get that her sarcasm is supposed to represent how she really feels about many things (Trust me I use sarcasm a lot too) but she just over used it and simply became annoying.
Or maybe I found it annoying because I am annoying with sarcasm as well.. And sarcasm and sarcasm together is just... not good xD
If I look past that though, its a good read. I like the cuteness that the story has, its a good book to read between epic books.
I didnt feel so strongly about the book at first, I found it a bit boring but THEN a whole bunch of stuff started happening and its like DAMN, cant you just like... CHILL a bit now XD the last half or quarter of the book really kept me on the edge of my seat, I like speed read the last part of the book xD it redeemed itself at the last minute.
Like REALLY got super intense towards the end, it really made up for the first half of the book, made it trully worth it.
With that said, I would actually really look forward to reading more by West, she wrote a good plot, a character that even though I found annoying, I sure remembered xD and I am simply a sucker for love stories
mmmmm yes, you have to give it a chance and then youll get really into it.
