“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. 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.
            This is my second book I´ve read by Kasie West, and I´m starting liking her fresh, sweet style. However, in this book I could find some writing issues, as a lot of she says, he says thing, guessing paragraphs out of context, abruptly changing of scenarios, communication problems which is understandable among teenagers, nevertheless it was hard to bite the magical solution for all of them.
            Yes, it was a couple aspects that could be better, but there were others really great that made me enjoyed it, laughed and sighted. For start, the author has a gift to create well done characters, everyone on the story is unique, I could feel how they jumped out of the pages until turning into something real; especially Caymen she was such great, powerful character that was easy to connect with her, I just loved her! All the -not so good- things I said about the book were forgotten because of her.
Plus there are hilarious dialogues full of sarcasm and entertainment. There isn´t a line of boredom in this book. Also there is friendship, family love and a delightful romance built page after pages until my favorite part - the happy ending-.
            Therefore 4 stars for “The distance between us”.     
            It is recommended for everyone who is looking to spend an afternoon with a fresh and light romance reading. Also for readers who like Jenny Han, Katie Macgarry, Huntley Fitzpatrick and Stephanie Perkins.
