So happy

I promise my blog isn't going to turn into this big Look At Me fest. I really really like to talk about books I love and other authors as well as things other than writing going on. But for those of you who didn't see this on twitter the other day, I have to share because it makes me so happy.

Pivot Point got a starred review from Publisher's Weekly!!!!! Click here to check it out on their website.  Or you can read it below. :)

"Addie Coleman has an ability anyone would relish. She’s a Searcher who, when faced with a difficult choice, can foresee both outcomes before deciding which she’d rather live out. Since Addie’s parents have just announced they are divorcing and her father will be leaving their secret paranormal Compound, Addie must do her most important Search yet. Debut novelist West cleverly alternates chapters to show readers how Addie’s two very different futures will play out—one with her mother on the Compound; the other with her father in the Normal world. West’s premise is a winner, and Addie is the kind of heroine readers would want as a best friend—loyal, unpretentious, and thoughtful. Two love interests in Addie’s divergent futures make things even more interesting, as does a murder subplot. What truly makes West’s story memorable, however, is Addie’s wry humor (“I’ve been thinking about books where the main character’s parents are going through a divorce. A big theme is rebellion. I think I should give it a try”) and the book’s fascinating exploration of how life can change with one simple choice. Ages 13–up. Agent: Michelle Wolfson, Wolfson Literary Agency. (Feb.)"

  6. We live for your good reviews. Or maybe that's just me. But you live to make me happy. Or maybe that's just in my imaginary life. Whatever. Anyway, this was an awesome post and an incredibly well deserved STARRED REVIEW!!! Can't wait for the book to come out so the rest of the world sees it too.

    1. Ha! No, it's not your imagination. I do, in fact, live to make you happy. :) Jared might fight you over that claim though.
