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.

By your side, is a really good book one of my favourites by Kasie west. I would give this book 4.5 out of 5 stars! If you like books with some romance and happy endings this could be the book for you! In the book I really like the part when they are in the library and how the main character likes photography!

Pack "By Your Side" in your beach or overnight bag for a flirty light read. Two teens from completely different social circles are locked in the library over a three day weekend and bond in spite of themselves.
A tragic accident keeps them apart, but will love conquer all? A fun book set in Utah for a change.

Another very cute romance! Kasie West doesn't let you down again to keep you wondering what will happen.

I dont intend to read this book, but I read the summary and let me tell you this, the summary of this book reminds me of the one episode in Arthur where Francine and Arthur get trapped in the library together. 

This book is a classic romance novel, where the main character thinks she will not ever fall in love with the other main character, whom she is stuck in the library with. the become friends and promise to become nothing more because the main character thinks she is supposed to date another guy, who she soon realizes is not for her. I will not say anything more about this wonderful book, because I would not want to spoil it. with that being said, my last and final words are this: This book is amazing, and you should read it. Pay no attention to the comment by the TEENREVIEWBOARD. It is not true.

Unexpectedly, Autumn was locked in the library for the whole weekend. It wouldn’t have been too bad alone but she soon realizes that things will take a turn for the worse when she found Dax locked in with her. Many rumors swirl around Dax and all Autumn knows is that he’s trouble. In the beginning, the tension was high between the two, but eventually, they started working together and communicating. After the long three days have finally gone by, it was time for this unlikely pair to part. But once Autumn finds out about an accident concerning her friends, she seeks comfort in Dax and the two’s relationship grows even stronger than before. This was a sweet romance that contained lots of character growth. The two main characters learn to accept each other and we, readers, get to learn how that one fateful encounter can change one's life, forever. Rating: 4.5/5

Getting trapped in the library is a childhood dream come true for some people. Imagine the days spent in a building full of books, with no responsibilities, without your parents nagging you to finish your homework or chores. This situation is exactly what the main character, Autumn, went through. For some stupid idiotic reason, she managed to get herself trapped in a library. The author, Kasie West, managed to take an idea like this and spin it into some tedious, cliché filled novel. Everything about this book is so unrealistic and predictable, it was clear at the beginning who Autumn would fall for. To make matters worse, Autumn is such an irritating brat, I couldn’t even finish this book because she made me sooo ANGRY. Seriously, who’s stupid enough to get trapped in the library? Rating 1/5 Stars

Autumn is locked in the local library for the long weekend, with her is none other than the school troublemaker Dax. Not exactly her first choice when she could have been at a bonfire with her crush who has finally been showing her some interest. Autumn thinks it's going to be a long and awkward weekend until she finds out that Dax isn't as bad as everyone has made him out to be.
I only got through a couple chapters before deciding not to finish this book because the concept just didn't interest me, although I’ve loved all of the other books that Kasie has written. Just the idea of being locked in a public building with no way out for a whole weekend just seemed really unrealistic. Might try it again at another time but not for now.
