Waiting On Wednesday (71) The Distance Between Us


Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.

My choice for this week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Paperback, 320 pages
Expected publication: July 2nd 2013 by Harper Teen

Synopsis 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.

I am a huge fan of contemporaries, and this one sounds absolutely perfect for me. And look at that cover! Gorgeous. Depending on how much I enjoy The Distance Between Us, I may have to pick up Pivot Point to read also.

What are you waiting on this week?

  3. I really can't wait for this. I really enjoyed Pivot Point (would recommend it even if you didn't enjoy this since they have different concepts). This sounds like a really romantic read as well!
