Waiting on Wednesday #19

 
Is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, which spotlights upcoming releases were eagerly anticipating.

The book I'm most excited about this week is..

The Distance Between Us The Distance Between Us
by Kasie West
Publication Date: July 2nd 2013
Publisher: Harper Teen
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.

I can't wait to pick this up! I loved Kasie West's paranormal story, Pivot Point  So I'm sure she'll amaze us with her venture into contemporary!  Sounds like a "vanilla queen's dream"!

So what are you waiting on?  Link us up, we'd love to know. :)

  3. I love the cover for this one, although it sounds a little like the novels by Abbi Glines which always feature this typical difference in societal status. It really does seem up your alley though, Rachel, so I hope you enjoy it! :)

  16. I have yet to read Pivot Point but this one does sound good. I always find it interesting when authors branch out into different genres. Doesn't always work out right but I think it's awesome. :) Great pick!

  17. Mh, I didn't much care for Pivot Point, but this is a contemporary and I noticed in PP that West has huge talent precisely for that. Plus, the gorgeous cover sure doesn't hurt.
    Great pick!

  18. Contemporary isn't always my thing, but you've certainly caught my attention with this one, Rachel.

    The idea of the rich and the studying she takes interests me. Thanks for bringing this onto my radar, Rachel! :)

  26. Ooh, I;m loving this one already. I love that her mothers warning is that rich people have less attention span. That;s hilarious, and I can't wait to read more.
