About the Book- On the Fence
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 a 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.
Our Review of On the Fence
Every time I had been in a reading slump, a Kasie West book had always been one of the key factors that had brought me back to my reading spree. Maybe we all have that magical genre or books that get us all back to reading. For me, it is Kasie West books. So far all the books that I have read from the author have been amazing and kept the scores perfect. 🤞The reason why I love Kasie west romances is that they are clean, simple, and uncomplicated. So maybe naturally that is why these books are like a refresher for me. Simple reads, cute that instantly absorbs me in.
If you ask me why you should pick this book, then I would say because of the siblings and the whole family bonding. I am sure anybody who had read this book couldn’t help but thaw at the cuteness and sweetness of the whole brothers and sister gang. I was giggling and laughing aloud through the book. This book has one of the cutest, fluffiest “I want to smother them with hugs” kind of family. I would switch my sibling for this gang ( Just make sure my sibling doesn’t hear about this…she can throw a mean punch for a skinny one). I am on a sugar rush right now, simply thinking back to the book.
If you are a hardcore romance fan, then you might want to not bring high hopes of teen angst into this book. This is not that kind of book. The book is all about your first crush and all the sweet complications that come with that. That is why I love Kasie West’s stories. She doesn’t complicate it. Even the complicated and heavy stuff is dealt with so softly and uncomplicated way and in a good and effective way. The book majorly, at least for me, was more about the sweet sibling bonding. The fun and the chaos that comes as part of the package. For me, the romance was just the added sprinkles on top of the cupcake.
If you hate romance then this is your book because it got none or at least you get more reason to hate it. Ok that The book is a sweet, easy-breezy read that absorbs you and gives you a light fluffy read. It is perfect for those who want to read something so cute that makes you melt. Something that can make you laugh like a maniac, giggle and cry happy tears. Do not come into this book looking for high stakes romance, and then crib later. This is more like a hallmark movie. A Disney movie. Sweet and Soft. A perfect weekend read that makes you feel good and happy.
