... Pivot Point by Kasie West!

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.

I loved this book! It is so unique and very cleverly written in two viewpoints, so that interesting subplots are revealed in jigsaw pieces of events. I love the idea of being able to look into the future and see the outcomes of different choices- I would like to have this ability when I have a difficult decision to make!

So I'd love to know- what was the best book you read/ reviewed this month? Link it up here! 
Already written up a monthly wrap-up post? Why not link it up here!?

Just let me know- Who gets your bananas?

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I've been wanting to read Pivot Point. It sounds so good! :D

  2. I've heard so many good things about this, but it just doesn't appeal to me. Maybe I'll have to suck it up and give it a go anyway!

  3. I've never heard of Pivot Point before but the premise intrigues me - any time travel-esque is something I want to know more about!

  4. Yay! I was hoping Pivot Point would end up as your Best of the Bunch and it did! Yipee! I loved it as well. :)

  5. Wow, haven't read this yet, but now I'm intrigued! I'm a newbie blogger, and just joined yours last week. Love it!

  6. I loved Pivot Point! Really glad it made your best of the bunch! :)
