The Distance Between Us

The Distance Between Us - Kasie West betty's a bombshell she just got paidcrossing the street on passionate gatesbilly's a looker he's from upstatehe ran into betty and he took her on a dateI love this song.The book is like the song.I do not like the book.It's a conundrum, folks. Conundrum! With a drum! Banging on your head!What I liked:~Caymen, Sayde, the Toad, Tick and Xander. I loved their personalities and especially Caymen's dry humor. ~I’ve just never seen eyes as green as yours. I thought maybe they were colored contacts.This is cheesiness you could BITE into. However, besides these iffy dialogues, the romance was pretty cute.What I didn't:~The writing was just bad, primarily in the first half. It also seems to need another round of editing:I wish I would’ve brought some gloves.~What was up with the strange man whose name I can't remember. It was pretty half-assed, the way things were left hanging.~The rest of the story was anti-climatic and lacked cohesiveness. ~The entrance of le grandparents didn't sit well with me and the ending was way too abrupt.YET, I can't stress enough how much I liked the characters and the cuteness. It's worth it to read the book just for that.Overall rating: 2.5
