Book Review – On the Fence by Kasie West

Discussion Questions – and Answers! – from Something Beautiful

I’m doing something a little different today! Every so often, I’m going to snag a Monday post to talk about Something Beautiful, my upcoming YA contemporary release! I’ve got a little over two months to go, and my ARCs are out in the world, so I thought I better get started!
