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.

Pivot Point is a jaw-dropping debut from Kasie West. This book surpassed all of my expectations. I was literally blown away.

Addie is a Searcher, meaing that she can see the future only if she is faced a choice. Addie has to make a decision which parent she wants to live with. This book takes a unique take on two possible futures. The real question is: which one will she pick?

The two futures were completely different. I loved how both of the futures had a small connection to each other.If I had to choose for Addie, I would have chosen the life with her Dad. Mainly, because I loved Trevor. The other future was more suspenseful, which was one of the perks of it. But the main reason why I didn`t like it was because of Duke. I didn`t like him. He was just too suspicious and there was nothing to like about him at all.

This book was absolutely brilliant, well-plotted and breath-taking. Filled with twist and turns, you'll be dying for the second book. Pivot Point is a must read!
