Summary (from Goodreads):
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.
The other day, I walked into a bookstore and was so happy to discover copies of The Distance Between Us on the shelves. But then, it hit me. How could I possibly be holding the book in my hands? After all, it wasn't July yet! Far from it. And then I came to a very sad realization: I WAS DREAMING. Oh, the sadness that followed when I woke up... As you can now probably tell, I'm really looking forward to reading Kasie West's romantic contemporary novel The Distance Between Us! (And seriously, how perfect is this book cover? I absolutely love it!)
