With three older brothers, Charlotte Reynolds, aka Charlie, has always been more comfortable calling the shots on a basketball court than flirting with the opposite sex. So when her police officer dad demands she get a summer job to pay for the latest in a long line of speeding tickets, she's more than a little surprised to find herself working at a chichi boutique and going out with a boy who has never seen her tear it up in a pickup game. Charlie seeks late-night refuge in her backyard, talking out her problems with her neighbor and honorary fourth brother, Braden, sitting back-to-back against the fence that separates them. Braden may know her better than anyone. But there's a secret Charlie's keeping that even he hasn't figured out—she's fallen for him. Hard. She knows what it means to go for the win, but if spilling her secret means losing him for good, the stakes just got too high.
On the Fence is a sweet and satisfying read about finding yourself and finding love where you least expect it.

Basically, Charlie lost her mom at a young age and she goes around with her three older brothers and a neighbor, becoming one of the boys. In this book, she starts to learn about being a girl and discovering feelings for Braden (the neighbor) that isn't at all sisterly-like. What I like best is how her dad tried to become mom and dad to her, and how he takes advice from a "co-worker" named Carol. I thought that was pretty sweet of him, and shows what a great dad he was.
"4.5-5 STARS!!" By Terrill Rosado 1 year ago
Wonderful YA romance. Funny, heartfelt, and much swooning. I don't think I laughed while reading a YA novel as much as I did with this one. The friendships and sibling relationships were spot on. I would recommend this to all romance loving teens and young adults.
