Summary from

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.

I really enjoyed Kasie's previous contemporary YA, The Distance Between Us, and I like her writing and characterisation. I've been looking forward to On the Fence for a while - I have it pre-ordered on Kindle - and I hope it'll be just as good. Tomboys and boys next door... count me in!

I'm reading On the Fence right now, and it's really good. It took me a little bit to warm up to Charlie, but now I'm hooked.

I don't like it as much as The Distance Between Us, but I don't think you will be disappointed in the slightest!
