#61 for the year, Pivot Point by Kasie West.
Date Finished: 4/29/13
How Acquired: I came across this book on a book tumblr (I can’t remember which one!) and it was one of the many books I recently ordered from the library (my librarians hate me…)
Final Thoughts: Holy shit, I loved this book. Right after reading it I researched to find out when the sequel is coming out - answer, not soon enough (Feb 2014). The main character Addison lives in a Texas compound where everyone has special mental abilities; Addison’s ability, divergence, allows her to see into her future and see possible outcomes of specific choices. She uses this ability when her parents divorce and the book follows, in alternate chapters, her choice to go live with her dad in the “normal” world outside the compound, or stay with her mom in the compound. There’s mystery, there’s murder, there’s a realistic YA love story and the tension is palpable. West crafted an authentic, believable, mindfuck of a story that’s fun to read and hard to put down.
