On the Fence

On the Fence
by: Kasie West

Should you read it?: Yes
Category: Young Adult

From Amazon: She's a tomboy. He's the boy next door.

With three older brothers, Charlotte Reynolds, aka Charlie, has always been more comfortable calling the shots on a basketball court than flirting with the opposite sex. So when her police officer dad demands she get a summer job to pay for the latest in a long line of speeding tickets, she's more than a little surprised to find herself working at a chichi boutique and going out with a boy who has never seen her tear it up in a pickup game. Charlie seeks late-night refuge in her backyard, talking out her problems with her neighbor and honorary fourth brother, Braden, sitting back-to-back against the fence that separates them. Braden may know her better than anyone. But there's a secret Charlie's keeping that even he hasn't figured out—she's fallen for him. 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.

Things I Liked: 
I loved the fact that Charlie wasn't a normal heroine in the book. She's tough, she's not obsessed with her looks & she's independent.

I also loved the relationship between Charlie & her family. They struggled with the loss of her mom and they weren't perfect, but they truly love each other and I just thought it was really sweet.

I also really enjoyed the relationship development between Charlie & Braden. Seriously so fun. Kasie West always does such a good job of developing the relationships between her characters.

Things I Didn't:
I honestly can't even remember anything I didn't like. If there was something, it couldn't have been major!

Overall: Just read it because it'll make you smile.
