Waiting on Wednesday #12: Pivot Point


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature created by Jill at Breaking the Spine. This is where you showcase an upcoming release you're anxiously awaiting!
This week, I'm waiting on:

Pivot Point by Kasie West.



Expected Publication: February 12, 2013.
Publisher: HarperTeen.


Goodreads Summary:
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.


Why I'm Excited: I've read a book before with this type of split storyline where the character's life can go one way or another and she gets to experience both and I thought it was great. It's definitely an interesting way to tell the story, so I'm looking forward to reading another done the same way! And with less than a month until its release, I'm only getting more excited!

What are you waiting on this week?

  2. I'm looking forward to this one too — perhaps it'll be a little like a YA book version of the movie Sliding Doors! Which was the other book you read with that kind of premise?

    1. I haven't heard of Sliding Doors, but I'll have to check that out! I'm finishing up reading an indie novel called Bitter Angel by Megan Hand, which should be out this May, and it has the split timelines concept. It's very intense! If you like this kind of idea, I'd recommend watching for it this spring :)
