The Boy Next Door by Janet Quin-Harkin
In THE BOY NEXT DOOR, Amber Stevens was having a great life in New York. But then her parents decide to move from the big apple to her ill grandfather's farm in Wyoming. In New York, Amber had a new boyfriend and great friends. But to Amber's dismay, she soon falls in love with Rich Winter, her handsome like-cowboy neighbor. But when Amber's friends come to visit her, everything goes wacko and Amber must decide whether to go back to New York or to stay in Wyoming with Rich. This was a very fascinating book that grabbed my attention very quickly. The part that I enjoyed the most was how Amber chose to stay in Wyoming with Rich and not go back to New York with her friends. I also liked the development of Amber and how she went from being well off in New York to surviving with the bare minimum in Wyoming. Chessa H.
