Knowing the outcome doesn’t always make a choice easier . . .From an 8th grader:
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.
The book I have most recently read and was also my favorite book of third quarter is Pivot Point by Kasie West. Pivot Point is my favorite book for third quarter because it was very nerve wracking and I like that in my books because then I can’t predict what would happen next. I chose Pivot Point because I wanted to read something different and also because I loved the way the cover looked so unique. Pivot Point was different from the books I usually I read because I’ve mostly read books that involve teenage problems and this book was more about decision making. For Pivot Point I’d rate the book 5 stars because when I would read I wouldn’t want to stop reading. I would recommend Pivot Point to mostly just girls because girls can more relate to the main character than boys can. I won’t forget this book and will probably end up reading it again in the future.
