Description-

  • Money can't buy a good first impression.

    Seventeen-year-old Caymen Meyers learned early that the rich are not to be trusted. And after years of studying them from behind the cash register of her mom's porcelain-doll shop, she has seen nothing to prove otherwise. Enter Xander Spence--he's tall, handsome, and oozing rich. Despite his charming ways and the fact that he seems to be one of the first people who actually gets her, she's smart enough to know his interest won't last. Because if there's one thing she's learned from her mother's warnings, it's that the rich have a short attention span. But just when Xander's loyalty and attentiveness are about to convince Caymen that being rich isn't a character flaw, she finds out that money is a much bigger part of their relationship than she'd ever realized. With so many obstacles standing in their way, can she close the distance between them?

About the Author-

    Caymen is 17 and on the cusp of college when she meets Xander and discovers there's more to a guy than his bank-account balance. Caymen and her mom are barely making a living with their porcelain-doll shop. They live in a town where there are the rich and those who cater to them. When Xander comes into the shop one day and "beckons" her over, he confirms her opinion of the wealthy. Xander, however, is charmed by Caymen's rapier wit, and she finds herself moved by his Ken-doll looks. He courts her with muffin deliveries, and the ride in his private jet is exhilarating. Xander chafes at his parents' mandate that he take over the family hotel chain, and Caymen is indecisive about her future, so they begin a series of playful career dates and gradually overcome their preconceived notions of each other. There are a few hiccups and misunderstandings but plenty of gooey romantic stuff, too: "He tastes good, like salty chocolate." Meanwhile, the shop is failing, and Caymen's mother is acting dodgy. When her mom is hospitalized, and Xander unveils a gigantic surprise, Caymen has to give some consideration to Xander's encouragement: "You have as many options as you give yourself." An antidote to dystopian and post-apocalyptic fiction, this Cinderella story is sweet and hopeful. (Fiction. 12-17)

    Gr 8 Up-Seventeen-year-old Caymen Meyers works in her mother's shop selling porcelain dolls to wealthy patrons. Even though she and her mom know that the rich can't be trusted, they rely on them to keep the store afloat. Then charismatic Xander walks into the store and seems to understand cynical and sarcastic Caymen better than anyone else, and she begins to wonder if maybe she and her mother were wrong. That is, until she's mistreated by Xander's friends and, after reading a tabloid, discovers that he may already have a girlfriend. Ultimately, however, Caymen realizes that she has a love worth fighting for, and the star-crossed lovers end up together. Despite the predictable ending, the charming story is beautifully written, and the characters are well developed. Similar in feel to books by Susane Colasanti, West's novel is sweet and captivating.-Candyce Pruitt-Goddard, Hartford Public Library, CT
