About The Author

Kasie West

Kasie West lives with her family in central California, where the heat tries to kill her with its 115-degree stretches. She graduated from Fresno State University with a BA degree that has nothing to do with writing.

A stay-at-home mom of four children, three of them girls, ranging in age from twelve to four, Kasie West hears lots of melodramatic versions of large-than-life events.

Her novels, published through Harper Teen are: PIVOT POINT, its sequel SPLIT SECOND (Feb 2014), and THE DISTANCE BETWEEN US (a contemporary novel). She also has two more contemporaries: ON THE FENCE coming out July 1, 2014, and THE FILL-IN BOYFRIEND coming out the summer of 2015.

I can’t wait for her next book(s) – at this point I think I can read pretty much everything from this author!

Random facts about Kasie:

“I earned my masters in Junior Mint eating (which is awarded after eating your millionth King Size box….I’m now working on my PhD). I love sappy alternative rock ballads and reading way past my bedtime.

The Fill-In Boyfriend
By Kasie West

To be honest, I was absolutely sure that I would love this story, even with the funny (though a bit unfortunate) title.

Gia is very immature. Her problems …

Book #2 in Pivot Point Series
By Kasie West

This story was pretty intense There was so much action, plenty of ‘take my breath away’ kind of moments, also there were many turnarounds that I barely got to wrap my head around. It was just as insane as the first one and the need to switch between dual POVs just as strong as before (it is true that I …

On the Fence
By Kasie West

That's it, I found a book I want to live in! For me this book was perfect: perfectly-awesome dynamics, perfectly-sweet romance and just a perfectly-bit of sadness to make up for the perfectly-amazing 'giggleness'. Yes, I am a also a 'perfect' dork in love with romantic stories, but what can I say? I just loved this story so very much! …

The Distance Between Us
By Kasie West

I am not much into rich vs poor stories. It’s that I don’t get them fully, I don’t understand the characters’ struggle and it’s hard to believe the resolutions presented. Still, some stories are meant to be fun, they offer a nice ride toward a happy ending and their only purpose is to entertain you. This is the …

Pivot Point
Book #1 in Pivot Point Series
By Kasie West

Can someone please come and erase my memory such that I can fall in love again with this story in 2014? I really have a hard time believing that I will be able to sit still and wait a whole year for my favorite part of this story. I am even scared. I saw Addie fall in love 2 times …
