Pivot Point Blog Tour

    Pivot Point Blog Tour: Excerpt + Giveaway


    When I was invited to be a part of the PIVOT POINT Blog Tour hosted by Mundie Moms I was totally stoked. And of course I said yes. Because PIVOT POINT is one of my most anticipated reads.

    And even though I haven’t yet read it, release date is right around the corner and I will be reading it when it releases next week. Unless I manage to wrangle a copy just a few days before release date. Because this would totally be a D.E.A.R. (Drop Everything And Read) book.

    I’ve already spotlighted it for my Book Watch post just the other week and now I only have a week left to count down until I’ll be able to discover for myself just how awesome this book is. And judging by the short excerpt I have to share with my post, PIVOT POINT is going to be amazing.

    It’s definitely a “me” book with characters I just know I’m going to love.

    In addition to the excerpt, I have all sorts of information about the book and author, below, so that you can decide for yourself if PIVOT POINT is a book you’ll want to move to the top of your TBR pile when it releases.

    I also have a shared giveaway in which two copies of PIVOT POINT are up for grabs – US only – so be sure to check it out below.


    About the Book


    Title: PIVOT POINT
    Author: Kasie West
    Publisher: HarperTeen
    Pages: 352
    Release Date: February 12, 2013
    Formats: Hardcover, eBook

    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.




    “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)

    He readjusts his position on the floor, but it doesn’t seem to make him any more comfortable. “I never did give you that zombie quiz on Friday.”

    “That’s because you were too busy driving strangers to my house.”

    He groans. “I thought you might’ve been mad about that. Sorry.”

    “Yeah, well, you’ve known me for such a long time. You should be able to read my looks by now. Glaring at you in the rearview mirror, like this, means: ‘You will die if you take people to my house. Come up with an alternate solution.'” I give him an example of the look.

    “Good to know. I’ll start a list.”
