The Distance Between Us is a classic tale of average (on the verge of struggling) meets rich when Caymen meets Xander in her mom’s doll shop. Due to her mother’s disdain for the rich lifestyle, Caymen views the rich similarly, though there is something about Xander that she cannot let go of. Soon the two begin hanging out and Caymen learns more about herself, and her past, and well… you can’t help who you fall in love with, can you?
This book is a very light and cute read. For myself, it was easy to kind of relate to Caymen’s character and the relationship she has with her mom as well as the struggles her and her mom go through. Though the only difference is that my mother is as sarcastic as I am… that’s where I got it from!
I think what I enjoyed most was the sarcastic banter between the characters. It helped to lighten up parts of the story and just made it fun to read. But overall, I would say this is more like a book that I’d read once, and that’s it. It wasn’t anything that really sticks with me, but I definitely would recommend this book if you’re looking for a light read!
