I meant to post this last week, but I had a sudden death in the family, so it’s a little late. And a little lighter on completed books than I expected. But the one book I did read last week was amazing…
Summary 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.
What I Thought:
Split Second just reaffirmed what I already knew—I will read any book Kasie West writes. This book took all of the things I loved about Pivot Point and added to it. The humor and little nerdy references and super swoony moments made me fall in love with Addie and Trevor all over again. And the addition of Conner with Laila just made the whole story that much richer. I loved how the two POVs from Addie and Laila gave me information that related to the other girl’s story, but she didn’t know it yet so it kept me on the edge of my seat hoping she figured it out before everything went to hell. And the end—which tied up one lingering issue that I was really hoping would be fixed—just made me want to hug my book.
