Summary (cr: goodreads)

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.

 My Review: (also in goodreads)

This was an entertaining read from Kasie West. After reading 'The Distance Between Us', it took me months to try another book from this author and this was a very entertaining read. What amused me is the slight cameo of Caymen and the mention of Xander from the last novel. I loved the fact that she was the only girl in the family and that her brothers were overprotective and at the same time hilarious. Though the plot was cliche(having a boy you've known your whole life suddenly seen more than just a brother), this read was still an entertaining romcom in the making. I especially love the witty banter between Charlie, her brothers and Braden.

Till the next read...
