Excellent book! I could not put it down. A well written book on the paranormal that the author makes you believe in 100%. I was so glad when I found out there was a sequel (Split Second).

This book uses the parallel timeline plot and it does it beautifully. Each chapter has you switching between two possible futures, and it is the decision that is made near the end that completely and utterly had me going, "YES!" this is unique, this is truth, this is why sometimes not knowing to be able to act honestly is the best thing of all. That friendship is valued above all else was also great.

Have done nothing but read once I started Pivot Point. NOTHING ELSE! My eyes burn and I've already ordered the next book.... READ THIS BOOK.

This is confusing at first but once you get into it you understand it better!

Do yourself a huge favor. Read this book. A great read, the plot is changes everytime you think you predict the next step.

A patron review from the Adult Summer Reading Game: "In this young adult science fiction, a futuristic society ensures that every person is born with a twin who is raised separately by another family. Before they can assume their full place in society, a teenager must find and kill their twin. Children are raised from a young age to track and fight.
The book has a neat premise and world, but the book does not fully engage with the really neat moral questions that this brings up, and the effect this would have on people. The ending is disappointing (no spoilers!) and the suspense is not very suspenseful.

Pivot Point's premise is intriguing, but this reader wants to know: how can a Search made for six weeks have only two paths? After a certain period of time, surely Addie would encounter multiple choices that would branch the possible paths into twice or four times or eight times as many. It just isn't possible that one decision would result in only two paths over such a long period of time. For a day? Yes. For over a month? No amount of suspension of disbelief can convince me of that. Nevertheless, we buy into Addie's journeys thanks to her relatable, if not effortless or smooth, voice and her relationships. The two boys are developed realistically and the ultimate choice between them is very satisfyingly resolved. As well, the Paranorms' world feels relatively seamless and believable. It's the story's plot and stakes where the issues arise again. A perfectly acceptable paranorm vs. norm high school arc is begun, only to switch tacks to a storyline that feels comically dramatic. The stakes are too high for this school story, and the villain ends up appearing rather absurd. That being said, the ending was enough to leave me happy. It's an uplifting finish untainted by any previous drama, focusing on the hopes and aspirations any teen could relate to.

I really enjoyed this book. It was suspenseful and had a better ending than I could have hoped for. It was almost too stressful for me though! My heart was beating so fast at the end and I was freaking out. I've never had that reaction to a book before and it freaked me out a little bit. But the book was well written and I look forward to reading the rest of the series.

In this book, Addie lives in secret Compound where everyone has a mind power. Hers is Divergence, which means that when she is faced with two choices, she can look ahead and both outcomes. One day, she is faced with an impossible choice; her parents are getting divorced. Who will she go with?
