When Gia Montgomery's boyfriend, Bradley, dumps her in the parking lot of her high school prom, she decides to do the unthinkable...convince the cute guy waiting to pick up his sister to pretend to be her boyfriend for the night. The task is simple: two hours, zero commitment, a few white lies.
The problem is that days after prom, she can't stop thinking about her fill-in boyfriend. But can Gia turn her fake boyfriend into a real one without exposing her lie and possibly destroying her friendships and her newfound relationship?
Smartly observed and wonderfully romantic, Kasie West's talent shines in this tale of one girl's unexpected quest to find love...and possibly herself.

Yes! Shannon McMannus is an amazing narrator and Kasie West's writing is fantastic.
Kasie West "the distance between us" it's a similar slow burn YA type of feel book
Everything - her clear delivery, perfect interpretation of the text, the voices and pacing were all top quality.
I have not read the the print edition - but I liked the book and in general I feel that the audio version just add a little something, and leave no confusion as to intonation or intent.
I really favored the evolving relationship between the lead character and the object of her desire's younger sister.
She was an excellent choice to narrate this book, and she really brings a certain realness - a definite human element, and reinforces the youthfulness of the main character - and clarity to her emotions.
It was a feel good story, you really wanted things to work out for the main character - and sometimes you wanted to shake her and ask her why some things were such a big deal.... I definitely felt a strong dislike for her "frienemy"
Definitely worth the listen! whether a credit or a purchase, I would definitely recommend this book:)
