An enjoyable teen romance for middle grade and up.
Fiction, young adult
4 out of 5 stars
Read it in one setting. Kasie West writes entertaining novels that feature teen characters working to discover who they truly are. I liked this story, and the growing relationship between Autumn and Dax, but felt that Dax wasn’t as well-developed as a character. That is partly because the story was told from Autumn’s point of view, but some of Dax’s changes felt unexplained and not realistic.
Overall, By Your Side is an entertaining read and suitable for middle grade and up who are looking for a romantic story.
