Author's Corner - Kasie West

Welcome to Author's Corner hosted by Bookworm NationKatie's Clean Book Collection and KJ's Book Nook! Once a month we will feature either a favorite author or new to us author. We will share the author's bio, one of our favorite books of theirs and a review. Each of us will be featuring a different author each month so there will also be links to each of our posts.

For this month's Author's Corner I am going to choose...


I am the mother of four--three daughters and one son.  We live in Central California where the summers try to kill us with their 115 degree stretches. I graduated from Fresno State University with a BA degree that has nothing to do with writing.  I earned my masters in Junior Mint eating (which is awarded after eating your millionth King Size box....I'm now working on my PhD).  I love sappy alternative rock ballads and reading way past my bedtime.  Check out bio here

I think the first book I read by Kasie was Pivot Point. Which for those who haven't read it (come on, what are you waiting for?) its a fun YA Science Fiction-y romance. It's original, unique and memorable. I am SO glad I discovered Kasie's books, they always a treat to read. I don't read a lot of young adult books anymore, but I still buy Kasie's books on release day and always enjoy them. I look forward to sharing them with my daughter when she is a little older. 


About the Book
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.
