Book Review- By Your Side

Ah, anoBy Your Sidether month, another YA novel. Sometimes I feel like I have a unhealthy reliance on YA Romance to support my happiness, but it is my happy place. Leave me be.

This is the first book I’ve read by Kasie West, and as far as first impressions go, it doesn’t get much better than this one. I was intrigued, and the gripped, and then emotionally attached on an almost unhealthy level. Seriously though, it was a real heart-throb and I couldn’t get enough.

Autumn Collins, a quiet but sociable teenaged girl, likes Jeff. For months, they’ve been going back and forth and she finally feels like they’re getting somewhere. Until she gets stuck for the weekend in the local library with Dax Miller, a boy with a rep. As they go from cold silence to understanding, Autumn finds herself more happy and relaxed than she’s ever been. But what happens when they leave the library, and she gets back to her old life, her old love?

I thought this was an extraordinarily good book, one of the best I’ve read in 2019, so if you like YA romance, then I recommend this.

This book in three words: Commitment – Secrets – Self-Confidence

Thanks for reading!
