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.

Sometimes I wish I had the super power to go back in time, because honestly I would go back and read Pivot Point when it was first released. I absolutely loved this book and story line.  So much so that I already ordered the second book in the series and will be reading it soon.  

The main things I loved about Pivot Point by Kasie West, was that unlike most super power/super human books I've read this one wasn't written like a comic book or written without all the details you really want to know.  This story had it all, a love story, danger and suspense and a great friendship.  I don't want to post any spoilers and with this book it's really hard not too, but let me say this, Pivot Point is a world I would love to live in.  Also, let's just get this out there, if I could have a super power, I wouldn't want Addison's.  I mean would you want to know the different paths you could take ahead of time.  I know I wouldn't, before reading this book though I would have said yes.  

The way Pivot Point is written you get to see both of her outcomes from chapter to chapter, almost like duel pov's.  It took me a few minutes to get used to that, but once I did I really enjoyed that part of the story.  Usually I'm pretty good at figuring out who did what in books like this, but this one had me pretty stumped until the very end. Haven't found many books lately that can stump me that way and I found that rather refreshing as well.

 Also I have to mention I've found me a new book boyfriend, Trevor is adorable! 

I need more of these characters, I can't wait to get my hands on the next book.  If you haven't read Pivot point and are a lover of the books mixed with paranormal/super hero type books, this is a great one for you.  

If you haven't already figured it out, I'm giving Pivot Point by Kasie West an Ali's Bookshelf...

I want to mention that this book is one that I read for the 2016 TBR Pile Reading Challenge, the 2016 Netgally & Edelweiss challenge and Bout of Books.  I love it when books fit a few different challenges!
