Book Blog- Pivot Point by Kasie West
Pivot Point by Kasie West is fun YA novel that's part paranormal, part mystery-thriller and part romance. Told in dual points of view from the same narrator, the novel explores two alternate futures of Addison Coleman, a girl with the gift of divergence- the ability to see two alternative futures when faced with a single choice. After learning of her parents' divorce, Addison must choose to stay with her mother in their secret community of people with paranormal abilities or go with her father to live among the "norms." The novel alternates between both possible futures, each with their own benefits and consequences. Addison can choose only one to be her reality, but what will she have to give up in the process? One choice can change everything...
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.
