Split Second

by Kasie West
Publication Date: February 11, 2014

From Goodreads:

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.


The first book in this series, Pivot Point, blew me away. I loved the special abilities, the private lives, and the integrating into normal society. West wrote the two different worlds perfectly, connecting each together without over lapping information. I can't wait to dive back into Addie's world and see where her next search will take her.

Has anyone read Pivot Point? Who's looking forward to this book? What book are you dying to read? I'd love to know!

  2. Heard a lot of good things about Pivot Point, so this should be good too. Being able to predict things, slowing down time... sounds cool.
