On The Fence
Author: Kasie West
Summary: Charlie is a tomboy and likes being a to be a tomboy. She never cares about her looks or her social life. She cares about her family and basketball. Charlie is living with her father and her three brothers so you can basically say that she grew up in the life of a boy. Even though she has three brothers she considers her neighbor Brandon as one of her brothers as well. But what happens if she starts developing feelings for Brandon? Charlie is not only in this situation but she needs money. She needs money to pay of a ticket. She gets a job at a clothing shop and a beauty shop that screams “not Charlie”. You will see in this book how much Charlie progresses with her life. How she changes, and how being a girly girl can actually be a good thing. I enjoyed this read a lot. I am only complaining that it didn’t really get into what happened after Summer ended. There wasn’t even an epilogue! But I can’t complain almost every single contemporary will leave you wanting more.
My Review: I enjoyed reading this book. It is a really great book to read if you like contemporary books. I love Kasie West. I think she writes amazing books. This book and her other contemporary novel. I just wish she wrote series about these books. Every person has their novel that they think should’ve ended differently or they just want to read more about the characters and what happens after. This is the book for me. It ended on a good note it is just ughhhhh I NEED MORE. I really like all the characters in this book especially Brandon and her brothers. They are all so supportive of Charlie and what she does. I especially love that all her brothers give boys that even look at Charlie the look that says ” If you look at my sisters you won’t be alive tomorrow.” Just so you know not all of these brothers are older than charlie i believe that there are two that are younger than her and still care about her. I would say for you to give this book a try. if your in for a contemporary novel at the moment keep this book in mind.
