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. On the Fence is a sweet and satisfying read about finding yourself and finding love where you least expect it.

On the Fence is a very sweet romance that stars Charlie, the tomboy, and Braden, the boy next door. Charlie has always been surrounded by men such as her dad, her 3 brothers and their friend Braden. Lately, Charlie has been having nightmares about her mom’s car accident and finds solace in talking to Braden who has also been struggling with his own issues. They would spend hours talking under the moon and between the fence. Those nights together were perfect but once it was daytime, it was as if nothing ever happened. Charlie should be fine with it, except that for the first time ever, she has been seeing him as more than just a friend. But can they truly achieve that if they don’t start talking without the fence? This is a light-hearted novel that would leave you grinning ear to ear. Charlie is probably very relatable to teenagers everywhere as she struggles with changes and self-identity. The plot was well paced and had a very satisfactory ending that leaves nothing to be desired. Rating: 4/5

On the fence, in my opinion I would give this book a five out of five stars! I really like how this book mentions certain characters from the book the distance between us. It is a really cool story and I really like how the Charlie has four brothers and how she is really into sports, when she gets her first real job it's so cool how she finds a new and different side of her self.

Another great book by Kasie West! Each of her books keeps you on your toes and wondering what will happen next. This story people can relate to because it is partially about a girl figuring out who she is as we all go through a time in our life such as this. Recommend definite read! Also another very cute romance!

i love that charlie learned to break the rules a little bit instead of doing everything her mom told her to do. i love that the Garrets (basically the opposite of her family) lived right next door. She found her little escape next door and fell in love too. Her mom and Clay made me so annoyed but at the end it was awesome. Greta book for rebellious YA readers.

Charlie is a bit of a bad ass tomboy feeling a little lost in the world. Feel-good, easy to read book with a little bit of romance and coming out into the world. Teenage girls, get onto this.
