Book Description:

Life can change in a split second.

Addie hardly recognizes her life since her parents divorced. Her boyfriend used her. Her best friend betrayed her. She can’t believe this is the future she chose. On top of that, her ability is acting up. She’s always been able to Search the future when presented with a choice. Now she can manipulate and slow down time, too . . . but not without a price.

When Addie’s dad invites her to spend her winter break with him, she jumps at the chance to escape into the Norm world of Dallas, Texas. There she meets the handsome and achingly familiar Trevor. He’s a virtual stranger to her, so why does her heart do a funny flip every time she sees him? But after witnessing secrets that were supposed to stay hidden, Trevor quickly seems more suspicious of Addie than interested in her. And she has an inexplicable desire to change that.

Meanwhile, her best friend, Laila, has a secret of her own: she can restore Addie’s memories . . . once she learns how. But there are powerful people who don’t want to see this happen. Desperate, Laila tries to manipulate Connor, a brooding bad boy from school—but he seems to be the only boy in the Compound immune to her charms. And the only one who can help her.

As Addie and Laila frantically attempt to retrieve the lost memories, Addie must piece together a world she thought she knew before she loses the love she nearly forgot . . . and a future that could change everything.


Pivot Point is one of the most surprising reads for me this year. The ending is as frustrating as ever though so I'm so excited to read this and see Addie and Trevor together again. Also, that cover = fierce!

  9. I think I'll have to wait until Split Seconds almost out before I start Pivot Point, sounding from that ending.

  14. I actually couldn't stand Pivot Point. I almost didn't finish it. Didn't like the characters or the plot, probably cause I was expecting something else.

  15. Good one! Uhh, not that I've read the first book yet, but I do recall everyone really loving it earlier this year. It's interesting that you say it was one of the most surprising reads for you this year because I recall feeling surprised that everyone loved Pivot Point so much because I hadn't been expecting anything from it.
