On the Fence
Praise for THE DISTANCE BETWEEN US: “THE DISTANCE BETWEEN US shines! This book is rich with sparkling dialogue, clever wit and sweet romance.” (Daisy Whitney, author of THE MOCKINGBIRDS and WHEN YOU WERE HERE)
“An antidote to dystopian and post–apocalyptic fiction, this Cinderella story is sweet and hopeful.” (Kirkus Reviews)

Praise for PIVOT POINT “An expertly plotted, deliciously clever story.” (Kiersten White, NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author of PARANORMALCY)
“PIVOT POINT is at once tense and romantic, challenging and engaging. It’s a truly remarkable debut.” (Robison Wells, author of VARIANT)
“West’s premise is a winner, and Addie is the kind of heroine readers would want as a best friend—loyal, unpretentious, and thoughtful.…What truly makes West’s story memorable, however, is Addie’s wry humor…and the book’s fascinating exploration of how life can change with one simple choice.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))
“West’s debut showcases riveting storytelling.” (Kirkus Reviews)
“With superb storytelling, a masterful blend of paranormal and normal, a helping of wit and humor, and a mouthwatering romance, PIVOT POINT is one of the most delicious books I’ve read.” (Elana Johnson, author of POSSESSION)
“West has created an intricately woven story of two possible futures. This debut novel…is a welcome change.” (School Library Journal)
From the Back Cover
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 a 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.
