On the Fence-Book Review

18298225For 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.

MY THOUGHTS

“Sometimes we expect more that people are capable of giving at the moment” 

I gave Kasie West another chance and this book is my favorite of her, It has everything I love in a book especially YA.

Charlie is a tomboy and sporty girl, she is the only sister of 3 brothers and Bradon who is neighbor of 12 years, so she practically grew up in a family of guys. She is all about sports. I love her bonding with guys and I love the way it is written. Not only by words how they physically fight and all those guys dumb pranks and stuff. It was so cool and refreshing to read something different.

“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.”

The way she started to change or say started to acting like Most of the girl, reactions of her brothers were Hilarious and literally made me LOL. Bradon and her friendship was so sweet, and the way she struggled when she realized her feelings toward Bradon.

All of the characters were well developed and interesting. My favorite thing is family bonding, you already know now that family bonding is an important factor for my likeness towards a book.

The ending was predictable but good predictable.

“I knew why I cared. Why this mattered so much. Why his opinion was the only thing that mattered. I was more than crushing on him. I loved Braden.”

  4. Sounds great, I was never girl (still not really) as a teen. I was part of the cadets which was 95% males. My best friends were lads and I was used to being one of the lads, only in my late teens did I start wearing make up, etc. Such a Lovely review.
