  • This book delighted me so much!

    4.5/5 Stars This book delighted me so much! I felt heart soar, I laughed, I felt my heart ache, and I felt so fulfilled at the end. I cannot stop reading Kasie West books! I think that I am hooked for good. I really connected with this book. Autumn, the main character, has generalized anxiety disorder and much of the book deals with her trying to handle her anxiety attacks. I have a social anxiety disorder that I have to deal with daily that I also take medications for so it was so easy for me to get in sync with Autumn's character. The only people that know about her anxiety disorder are her parents, brother, and the mysterious boy that experiences one of her attacks while they are locked inside the library over the weekend. Autumn has never told her friends about her anxiety issues because she didn't think that they would accept her, she didn't want to be treated differently, and she didn't want to make excuses for herself for having to take a step back sometimes. I thought that the representation of anxiety was very well displayed through Autumn's character. These characters were all fantastic! I loved Autumn, I loved Dax, and I loved her friends and family. I honestly felt that Jeff was annoying and immature in the beginning but I loved him at the end. He turned out to have such a big heart and showed that he really cared about Autumn. He even made me laugh at the end a few times with his carefree and charming personality. Dallin was irritating through most of the book, but I could understand his viewpoints throughout the book with his lack of knowledge of Autumn's anxiety issues. I loved Autumn's friendship with Lisa and her entire friend group as a whole. And I loved how they accepted her admission of her anxiety and supported her no questions asked. I loved the positive representation of family that was presented with both Autumn's family and Jeff's parents. I also liked the representation of not so great parents and the consequences and affects it can have on children through Dax's story. And on that note, I also liked the sensitive issues that were addressed apart from the anxiety disorder. Dax's story was heart wrenching and moving. I liked seeing inside the foster care system and seeing that things aren't always what they seem. I liked that West wasn't afraid to give Dax a sad backstory full of heartbreaking things. I really did love his character. Dax and Autumn both had amazing character growth in this book and it was a pleasure to read. The only thing that really irked me about this book was the unbelievable premise for the plot. The way that the plot develops is beautiful and I loved that, but in the very beginning, the fact that Autumn was trapped inside a library and had no way out and no way to call for help felt absurd to me. Strongly absurd. What library keeps its only telephones inside locked offices? And what doors refuse to open from the inside? Seriously? Apart from this huge oversight of unbelievability, I felt that the remaining plot points were played out beautifully. Overall, I felt that this was the most emotional Kasie West book that I have read yet. (My fourth book from her in total!) I loved seeing more emotional circumstances and issues with the characters. It really made them feel more real and story more impactful. I have no doubt that Kasie West fans will adore this book!

  • Couldn't Put It Down!

    By Your Side by Kasie West 5 Stars! - Wow!! I totally LOVED this book. It starts off by being trapped in a library!!! It had me hooked from right then! I have only read one other young adult book, and so I admit, I wasn't sure what to expect...but wow.. it was great! The flirty tension, fun dialogue, and wonderful lead characters just kept me longing to read. I did not want to put the book down! I am very glad my friend recommended this book to me. Well worth the read!!!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Cute YA romance novel...

    Sometimes you just need one of those feel-good movies, and other times you need one of those feel-good books. This is one of those books. It's a sweet story and I love to reread it when I have the urge to just read something that will make me happy.
