Book Review: Pivot Point by Kasie West

Book: Pivot Point by Kasie West
Genre: YA paranormal
Rating: ★★★★★
For: Fun
From: bought from Amazon

What a unique concept, this book! Well, there ARE people with supernatural powers, which has been done before a lot, but the interesting bit comes when the heroine (Addison is her name) of the story has to make a decision... whether to stay with her dad... or her mom... when they suddenly announce they are getting divorced.

The cool thing about our girl and making decisions is, she can live out what will happen with each choice, and then come back to the "pivot point" and decide which decision will be better. That's her superpower. Sounds nice, eh? Can you imagine all the times we could have used this in our lives?

So suddenly we are with her as she lives both of those stories. One chapter her life is with her dad who goes off to live with the "normal" people, and the next chapter is her life with her mom who stays in the sheltered and hidden "special" people city. The chapters go back and forth like that until we, the readers, along with Addison can see that... oh my CRAP, this is NOT going to be an easy decision! What is she going to do!!??

Because, of course, there are many complications and there's a bad guy and stuff happens, really bad stuff, and there are two guys, of course, so it's kind of like a love triangle, but NOT, and you start cheering for a certain choice, but you just can't be sure if it's really the best one even yet, and... yeah... it gets a bit intense!

I read it in just a couple of sittings and it was awesome fun.

Bottom line: I loved it!

Other Reviews:

You know you’re reading a great book when your favorite characters screw up so horribly you’re angry the rest of the day. From Miss Remmers Reviews

There's enough mystery and intrigue to keep readers guessing all the way up until the very end, too. From A Backwards Story

Pivot Point has a bit of that, but what makes it different (other than the paranormal twist) is that it’s brimming with originality and suspense, and it has a structure that can only be described as pure genius.From Book Nook

Watching Addie choose her path was tough. But ... did that means that the other path she didn't choose never really happened? From YA Romantics
