Is it possible to die from too much cuteness?
Summary from Goodreads
For sixteen-year-old Charlotte Reynolds, aka Charlie, being raised by a single dad and three older brothers has its perks. She can outrun, outscore, and outwit every boy she knows—including her longtime neighbor and honorary fourth brother, Braden. But when it comes to being a girl, Charlie doesn’t know the first thing about anything. So when she starts working at chichi boutique to pay off a speeding ticket, she finds herself in a strange new world of makeup, lacy skirts, and BeDazzlers. Even stranger, she’s spending time with a boy who has never seen her tear it up in a pickup game.
To cope with the stress of faking her way through this new reality, Charlie seeks late-night refuge in her backyard, talking out her problems with Braden by the fence that separates them. But their Fence Chats can’t solve Charlie’s biggest problem: she’s falling for Braden. Hard. She knows what it means to go for the win, but if spilling her secret means losing him for good, the stakes just got too high.
On the Fence by Kasie West is a YA contemporary novel that made me feel like I was floating on a cotton candy cloud!
My rating: Five Stars
Look, I love YA contemporaries. I love how my heart feels like it could burst from so much sweetness. This book was no exception.
“We can’t let boys define how we feel about ourselves. You have to know who you are before you should let any boy worth anything in.”
This book had all of my favorite things; great family relationships, a perfectly developed romance and a heroine to root for. Kasie West knows how to write the best characters. I never hate anyone in her books and that is rare for me.
There is not much else to say about this book because it was simple and so great! There’s nothing to analyse or tear apart because it was just a feel good novel about teenagers going through their life. Braden had me swooning and Charlie had me laughing.
If you ever find your self bored, and wanting a book that is simple, give On the Fence a shot.
This review is really short but there’s not much else to say about this book other than it kept me engaged the whole time 🙂
Until next time, Sam.
