Goodreads Summary: 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 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.

Cindy's Review: 
At a Glance/The Cover: 
So far, I think this book is my favorite of all the Kasie West books. But I have really high hopes for The Fill-in Boyfriend. :) On the Fence is kind of a companion book for The Distance Between Us. There are characters you see in both books, especially Skye. Also, On the Fence took place a little bit after TDBU. 

The Characters/My Opinion:
The storyline for this book is the "I'm in love with my best friend" thing. I love these kind of stories because I like how the main characters already know almost everything about each other. It's cute. I love how they grew up together and shared childhood memories. :) 

Charlie - Charlie is an absolute tomboy. She has 3 older brothers and 1 complimentary one. She's tall, strong, and grew up playing football with her brothers. But she can have a girly side. When she started working at a local mall, she finally got some girlfriends and learned about makeup and checking out boys. But that's when she felt her real feelings for Braden.

Braden - Braden literally sounds like that golden boy that never exists in real life. Charlie described her brothers as hotties, but she obviously can't lust after them because that would be disgusting. Then there's Braden, whose just as hot as the bros, if not even hotter. 

Basically, Charlie and Braden just have to figure out their love life together. The night talks along the fence helps them get even closer, but in a different way. It's cute. They're cute. Everything about this book is cute. Everything Kasie West writes are cute. :) 

Overall Thoughts:
CUTE CUTE CUTE. Looking for a simple, summer read with bubbly romance? On the Fence is definitely a must-read. :)

The Rating :(1-10): 9.5~

Happy Reading~
