This is a weekly meme, hosted at Breaking the Spine, spotlighting upcoming releases that we’re anticipating.

Title: The Distance Between Us
Author: Kasie West
Release Date: July 2nd, 2013
Publisher: HarperTeen (HarperCollins)
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. Goodreads

Words cannot describe how badly I want this book. I mean, you already saw me gushing about the cover, and the author’s debut novel… but that paired with the glowing early reviews… PLEASE. Gimme this.

    1. Looking forward to this too! I'm ready for a cute contemporary read haha and I did enjoy Pivot Point so I have hopes for this one! Plus the cover is so pretty.

    2. Yesss, she showed in Pivot Point that she could rock a contemporary for sure. So when I saw this one I was massively excited. Still am. I want it now!!! 🙂

      This cover is too beautiful. I want to hug the font and the colors and THE PRETTY. And of course I'm also really excited about the book. Duh.

    4. Hahaha, yeah, it's hard to say if I'm more excited about the cover or the contents. This is one book I'll be reading ASAP after it comes out 🙂
