Happy Book Birthday to Kasie West and PIVOT POINT

Kasie West is charming, funny, incredibly talented, occasionally known to get Jr. Mints stuck to her clothing, and one of my dearest friends in the entire world. I could not be more thrilled to tell you that her debut YA novel, PIVOT POINT is being released today!

This book has been everywhere on these here interwebs, so I'm guessing you've heard about PIVOT POINT, but if not, here's the lowdown:

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.


PIVOT POINT is technically superb with incredible writing and flawless execution, but that's not what I love about it. I love Addie and Laila. I love the powers, the mystery, the world, the relationships and the emotions. I ADORE this book and I can't wait for so many more people to be able to read it.

I'm so happy this day has finally come. Congratulations, Kasie. You are one of the most talented people I've ever met, but you are an even better friend. Love you, girl! I'm so so so happy for you! :)
