She's a tomboy. He's the boy next door.

With three older brothers, Charlotte Reynolds, aka Charlie, has always been more comfortable calling the shots on a basketball court than flirting with the opposite sex. So when her police officer dad demands she get a summer job to pay for the latest in a long line of speeding tickets, she's more than a little surprised to find herself working at a chichi boutique and going out with a boy who has never seen her tear it up in a pickup game. Charlie seeks late-night refuge in her backyard, talking out her problems with her neighbor and honorary fourth brother, Braden, sitting back-to-back against the fence that separates them. Braden may know her better than anyone. But there's a secret Charlie's keeping that even he hasn't figured out-she's fallen for him. 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.

On the Fence is a sweet and satisfying read about finding yourself and finding love where you least expect it.

    I received an ARC of On the Fence from Harper Teen Australia, this in no way influenced my review.

    First Line: The engine whined against my attempt to go faster.

    I had never read a Kasie West book before I picked up On the Fence and I am hating myself for not doing it before. She is such an amazing writer, captures emotions so well.

    Charlie is a tomboy, there is no denying it. She doesnt wear makeup, she dresses without much care and she hangs out with boys and, you know what, I loved her. Its rare that I read a book with a girl protagonist that isnt worried about what she wears, or if she is wearing makeup. It was different, but nice.

    I loved the writing style of Kasie West. It was interesting and it intrigued me to keep on reading. The book started off with a bang and just kept on getting better and better as it went on.

    I thought it was be a sappy contemporary romance instead novel, but it was so much more. It turned into a mystery novel somehow, it was so good. Yes, there were still those snappy romance moments, but it made them so much more glorious.

    I loved Charlies brothers. Yes, they may have been over protective, but, once you find out why, you kind of understand why they were protective. Each one of them were from the other, but they all related to Charlie in some way. It was different seeing sibling interaction, as again in YA there isnt much of yet when there is they arent the best relationships. So it was nice seeing good sibling relationships.

    She even had a pretty okay relationship with her father. I didnt mind her father at all. Yes, he was a little strict, but I can again understand why. I normally dont like parents all that much in Young Adult books, so that is another thumbs up to Kasie.

    Branden, he is just amazing and not to mention the boy next door. Charlie and Brandens Fence moments were just so cute and moving and heartbreaking. Just everything all at once.

    On the Fence was funny and cute as well as very moving. Charlie struggles the whole book with the death of her mother and she doesnt know how to be a girl. She cant get over her mothers death and as the book goes on we see why.

    On the Fence reminded me a lot of Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry in the sense of suppressed memories. Which intrigued me a lot. Its an interesting concept that no matter how many times its done it always seem different.

    I laughed, I cried and I swooned. On the Fence was simply just gorgeous. Kasies writing is brilliant and beautiful. It was entertaining and the banter between Charlie and her brothers and Charlie and Braden just added so much to the book. The heart-warming family moments also added so much depth to the book.

    The romance between Charlie and Braden was simply beautiful--the true nature of friends becoming more. They were totally adorable together and the scenes on the fence were just so brilliant.

    Over all On the Fence is a book of self-discovery, love, friendship and family. The tales of a girl becoming a girl, finding love and friendship. On the Fence is mesmerizing, moving and funny.
