PIVOT POINT

coming February 12, 2013




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 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.


"Kasie West is a master of suspense. The unique structure--seeing two alternate realities playing out at once--leaves you pleading with the characters, don't answer that phone, don't go to that house, don't talk to that person. PIVOT POINT is at once tense and romantic, challenging and engaging. It's a truly remarkable debut." (Robison Wells, Author of VARIANT)                                                                                   
"West’s debut is an expertly plotted, delightfully clever story. Addie’s dual realities pull the reader along to a startling—and devastatingly unavoidable—finale. I can’t wait for the next book!" (Kiersten White, New York Times Bestselling Author of PARANORMALCY)
"With superb storytelling, a masterful blend of paranormal and normal, a helping of wit and humor, and a mouth-watering romance, PIVOT POINT is one of the most delicious books I’ve read." (Elana Johnson, Author of POSSESSION)

  4. Kasie, I didn't know where else to post this. I just wanted to let you know about a typo in the book Pivot Point (for the next printing) On page 196, Line 24. I believe the word should be "No" not "Know". I just wanted to make you aware. Thanks.

    1. Thanks so much! It helps to have many eyes on a book. In this case, that isn't a typo. She's saying she knows she's tougher than her. Instead of saying "I know" she just said "know". :) But thanks for pointing it out. I'd rather you tell me even if it turns out not to be because if it was, I'd definitely want to know.

  6. Hi Kasie! My name is Elena, and you came to visit my school, NYOS, a couple of years ago, with 3 other authors. Their books were intriguing, book yours really caught my attention. You advised us to get older before we read it, so I did that. I just finished it like a day or to ago, but it was memorizing! I couldn't pull away from it!
    HOLY CRAP! That book was amazing!!!! This books gives me so many emotions and there's great imagery! It's an amazing book, and I haven't fangirled this much in a long time! You had my stay up past midnight reading Pivot Point. I'm so excited to read Split Second! Even though it's supposed to come on January 6th, I check my door everyday in case it arrives earlier. I love Pivot Point so much, great job at character development and creativity.

  7. Oh! And I have to say, with this whole concept of being Divergent, I was reminded of Robert Frosts' poem, "The Road Not Taken." :)

  11. Dear Kasie West,
    The two books Pivot Point and Split Second are my favorite books. And that's hard to beat because I read a lot. My friend and I were reading the books together and decided I'm dating Trevor and she's dating Connor. We are seriously in love! We request another book. It was devastating when we finished the books. Please write more! If not another book, a movie maybe? Please read and respond! Thanks your my favorite author! I've never read anything like it!
