Why You NEED The Distance Between Us
You know how sometimes there are books that make you so happy you just want to squeeze them and cuddle them and have tea parties with them at night when no one else is watching?
Okay, it's just me then.
Well that's what this book did to me. I laughed out loud often and may have cried once or twice. It's adorable and I love it and NOW it is out so you can love it to!!
Are you as happy as you should be about this? Good. :)
Here is more about the book and not just how I feel about it...in case that matters to you:
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.
Dude...it's awesome. This is Pretty in Pink meets Pride & Prejudice. You want it and since it's officially out in the world now, this is where you can get it:

Also, if you are in Utah, you can come to the Escape Reality Tour at Provo Library on (tomorrow) July 9th at 7pm and get a signed copy from Ms. Kasie herself. Plus...I hear other cool people may be there. ;-)
