Waiting on Wednesday (17)

Waiting on Wednesday
is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that showcases
upcoming releases that people are very much anticipating.

I actually have an ARC of this author's first book, which is out soon, and I think it sounds awesome and can't wait to read it. And then her next book just got announced, and it sounds awesome, too! I'm looking forward to it, especially since the concept is different and super interesting. Be sure to check it out!

Title: The Distance Between Us
Author: Kasie West
Publisher: Harper Teen
Publishing Date: July 2, 2013
Pages: 320

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.

What are you waiting on this week? Tell me in the comments!

  2. Hadn't seen this book around but I like the sound of it. I've been really interested in the socio-economic status of my YA characters.

  3. I've seen this one around quite a lot! I really like the cover of it! :D Great pick.
