Publisher's Summary

An irresistible story from Kasie West that explores the timeless question: What do you do when you fall for the person you least expect?
When Autumn Collins finds herself accidentally locked in the library for an entire weekend, she doesn't think things could get any worse. But that's before she realizes that Dax Miller is locked in with her. Autumn doesn't know much about Dax except that he's trouble. Between the rumors about the fight he was in (and that brief stint in juvie that followed it) and his reputation as a loner, he's not exactly the ideal person to be stuck with. Still, she just keeps reminding herself that it is only a matter of time before Jeff, her almost boyfriend, realizes he left her in the library and comes to rescue her.
Only he doesn't come. No one does.
Instead it becomes clear that Autumn is going to have to spend the next couple of days living off vending machine food and making conversation with a boy who clearly wants nothing to do with her. Except there is more to Dax than meets the eye. As he and Autumn at first grudgingly, and then not so grudgingly, open up to each other, Autumn is struck by their surprising connection. But can their feelings for each other survive once the weekend is over and Autumn's old life and old love interest threaten to pull her from Dax's side?

If you could sum up By Your Side in three words, what would they be?

Sweet, Hopeful, Insiteful

What was one of the most memorable moments of By Your Side?

When Dax pulls the alarm to help Autumn...

Have you listened to any of Caitlin Kelly’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Lots!! I love her so much...she is one of my faves!!!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Autumn finally admits to her friends she has an anxiety disorder...

Any additional comments?

** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **

This is a YA love story, no sexy times, but super sweet!! Autumn accidentally gets locked in the library over a long weekend...thinking she is alone, she is surprised when she runs into Dax...he is a foster child and his foster family had kicked him out for the weekend...a common occurrence...They become fast friends...well it turns out Autumns parents have been searching for her, thinking that she may be Dax pulls the fire alarm to get Autumn rescued...this triggers Autumns anxiety disorder and she passes out...

Jeff, Autumns long time semi boyfriend was involved in a bad accident, and Autumns friends have thought she was with him, and possibly dead...they are unaware of her anxiety disorder...and this is causing misunderstandings...she eventually has to come clean with them and be honest with herself..and this helps, and we get a very sweet HEA!!
