SPOILER ALERT!

Pivot Point by Kasie West Review

Pivot Point - Kasie West

Goodreads 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.

 

 

Review:

 

I've been so MIA with reviews lately, college and work are taking over my life! But I've finally read Pivot Point by Kasie West and although I wasn't the biggest fan of some of her stand alone books this book completely made me a fan of hers!

 

 

I loved the world of a secret society with mind powers and how the two paths ran parallel to each other so we could see the connections throughout and got two stories in one. I liked that Kasie labelled her chapters so we knew which path we were reading about without having to flick back and check. I absolutely loved Trevor, their relationship wasn't insta love as they became friends first which I appreciated and he took finding out about Addie's abilities and about her community really well, but I guess it helped that he reads comics haha :P

 

However, I didn't really like the ending.....*spoiler* I dunno it just didn't make sense to me as we didn't get an explanation as to why Bobby wanted al these powers (besides assuming the obvious of him wanting to be the most powerful that we usually see in villians) and although we knew he was a creep from the start it was only Addie who knew this because of her ability, why didn't anyone else pick up on it? I know Kasie was going for the shock factor but it would have been a much better story progression if Poison had been the killer as although he would have been the obvious choice, because we didn't get to know his character or see any redeeming qualities in him, it just seemed the logical choice.

 

I still really enjoyed this book more than I thought I would and can't wait to pick up the sequel as I'm excited to find out what happens next!
