In this irresistible story, Kasie West explores the timeless question of what to do when you fall for the person you least expect. Witty and romantic, this paperback original from a fan favorite is perfect for fans of Stephanie Perkins and Morgan Matson.When Autumn Collins finds herself accidentally locked in the library for an entire weekend, she doesnt think things could get any worse. But thats before she realizes that Dax Miller is locked in with her. Autumn doesnt know much about Dax except that hes trouble. Between the rumors about the fight he was in (and that brief stint in juvie that followed it) and his reputation as a loner, hes not exactly the ideal person to be stuck with. Still, she just keeps reminding herself that it is only a matter of time before Jeff, her almost-boyfriend, realizes he left her in the library and comes to rescue her.Only he doesnt come. No one does.Instead it becomes clear that Autumn is going to have to spend the next couple of days living off vending-machine food and making conversation with a boy who clearly wants nothing to do with her. Except there is more to Dax than meets the eye. As he and Autumn first grudgingly, and then not so grudgingly, open up to each other, Autumn is struck by their surprising connection. But can their feelings for each other survive once the weekend is over and Autumns old life, and old love interest, threaten to pull her from Daxs side?...

By Your Side Reviews
I'm not a huge fan of YA contemporary anymore-- i've found lately that I feel like i'm reading the same book over and over-- but i'm reading a really dark book at the moment and needed something light as a reprieve from it. I'd gotten this in a book box a couple of months back and decided now was the perfect time to try it out!
The premise really intrigued me and I knew it would go by quickly, so I dove into this. I was right, I finished it in two days. What I wasn't expecting is it had ...more
Kasie West is one of those authors who I will read anything she writes. I preordered this book and found time to read it. I enjoyed this story, but she's given us better. I do think lots of teens will relate to the characters in this book, the MC with her anxiety disorder, and the love interest in foster care. But I felt she could have gone a bit deeper, everything felt very surface level when dealing with issues. Like a teen afternoon special on TV.
I have to get one thing off my ches ...more
“Figure out what you think. Figure out what you want.”
•Okay, so you probably remember how much I enjoyed The Fill-In Boyfriend, do you? If you do, you can easily guess how excited how was for By Your Side, even because the premise sounded like the supreme dream of every avid reader: being locked in a library for a whole weekend. I mean, was I really supposed to resist to that? Sadly, it didn't turn out as good as I expected and hoped.
•The characters felt really flat, especially the supporting on ...more
Ahhh I really don't want to write this review. I mean, seriously, who wants to write a negative review about one of their favorite writers, one of those authors who never ceases to make you happy and put a smile on your face. Well, sometimes its necessary-especially when this is one out of three of your top anticipated releases for 2017. And, might I mention, two so far have been absolute TURDS. Alas, Kasie West was no exception.
I can't quite put my finger on why this book was so drab, so dull, ...more
Kasie West is an auto-buy for me, so I downloaded this book after screaming when I saw it. I went in only knowing that the MCs were locked in a library.
I love love loved Autumn and Dax. They're so different and so similar and I loved reading them together. I also really loved Autumn's family. It's so rare to see present and positive parents. I love that they were open and listened to her. And the banter between Autumn and her brother Owen was some of the best.
This was a lot angstier than other K ...more
Not for me.
A Kasie West romance set in a library and the boy and girl are trapped together yes please i wish this was me.
(Of course she has an almost boyfriend. C'moooon Kasie)
You know who’s my favorite? Kasie West.
You should probably already know this about me, but I’m just reminding you.
Kasie West consistently delivers sweet, fun, swoon-worthy stories. She manages to tell a story that touches on serious, relatable topics without making it the sole thing that the story is about.
In By Your Side, Autumn finds herself locked in the library… no way to get out and unable to contact anyone. Then she realizes she’s not alone… Dax Miller is in the library too, only it look ...more
