Publication Date: July 2, HarperTeen

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Seventeen-year-old Caymen Meyers studies the rich like her own personal science experiment, and after years of observation she’s pretty sure they’re only good for one thing—spending money on useless stuff, like the porcelain dolls in her mother’s shop.

So when Xander Spence walks into the store to pick up a doll for his grandmother, it only takes one glance for Caymen to figure out he’s oozing rich. Despite his charming ways and that he’s 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 Xander keeps coming around, despite her best efforts to scare him off. And much to her dismay, she’s beginning to enjoy his company.

She knows her mom can’t find out—she wouldn’t approve. She’d much rather Caymen hang out with the local rocker who hasn’t been raised by money. But just when Xander’s attention and loyalty 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. And that Xander’s not the only one she should’ve been worried about.

I was looking for a book cover with a romantic feel to it for valentine’s week, and isn’t this a pretty one? The synopsis reminds me a little of Pretty in Pink. And isn’t it unusual that the mom wants the daughter to go after the rocker dude?  Wonder who else Caymen should be worried about besides Xander?

I really like the eye-catching type treatment, and the way the sun breaks through the cover. Looks like a perfect summer read to me.

  6. The cover is definitely eye catching. I like the girl’s dress sense, pretty red dress and black heels. It also sounds pretty interesting. Rich boys always interest me in novels to see how they’re portrayed.

    Great pick, Lucy! 🙂

    I love your choice so much!! I read Pivot Point by Kasie West and loved it so much, so I want to read this just because it’s by her as well! But also the story sounds super cute! 🙂

  8. I never heard of a story that kinda revolves around money/being rich… it sounds pretty intriguing! Great pick 🙂
