Pivot Point by Kasie West

Pivot Point by Kasie West
2013, HarperTeen
Series: Book 1 of Pivot Point

Synopsis: Knowing the outcome doesn’t always make a choice easier . . .

Addison Coleman’s life is one big “What if?” As a Searcher, whenever Addie is faced with a choice, she can look into the future and see both outcomes. It’s the ultimate insurance plan against disaster. Or so she thought. When Addie’s parents ambush her with the news of their divorce, she has to pick who she wants to live with—her father, who is leaving the paranormal compound to live among the “Norms,” or her mother, who is staying in the life Addie has always known. Addie loves her life just as it is, so her answer should be easy. One Search six weeks into the future proves it’s not.

In one potential future, Addie is adjusting to life outside the Compound as the new girl in a Norm high school where she meets Trevor, a cute, sensitive artist who understands her. In the other path, Addie is being pursued by the hottest guy in school—but she never wanted to be a quarterback’s girlfriend. When Addie’s father is asked to consult on a murder in the Compound, she’s unwittingly drawn into a dangerous game that threatens everything she holds dear. With love and loss in both lives, it all comes down to which reality she’s willing to live through . . . and who she can’t live without.

The Good: I really enjoyed Pivot Point. I like reading about people with different types of clairvoyance and Addie's version is especially interesting. I liked experiencing both versions of this huge life decision. I didn't expect half of what happened throughout the novel and was very pleased with the ending. Pure shocker. I loved the compound and they wholly different lived the paranormals lives away from the norms. Both Duke and Trevor were great characters and it was different seeing a love triangle of sorts built in this way.

The Bad: Nothing. I enjoyed everything about this novel.
