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.
My rating: 4 out of 5
Something different, something fresh, and the way the chapters switch between both possible futures was genius! I have to say this was much better than I was expecting. It’s light, in a good way, reminds me of the funny and bubbly feel Paranormalcy by Kiersten White has. I like the way that Kasie explains all the powers the people from the Compound have, it’s an original idea and I’m happy we have more stories like these instead of vampire-filled-ones. Very interesting characters, Trevor is my favorite and I think it’s safe to say that the second book will be filled with great character development. After that cliffhanger at the end I’m curious to see how the story unfolds! I need the second book NOW!
