Summary from Goodreads:

“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 THOUGHTS.

 

Unique. Interesting. Gripping. Superb!

OMG! I love this book! I just love it! I wish there’s more! I expected a lot and I’m happy that it didn’t fail me!
The best thing about this one is it’s uniqueness, it’s different from other paranormal/sci-fi books. Addie is a Searcher, a clairvoyant, she Searches and she can look into the future and see the outcome. It find it very unique that the author picked that kind of ability for a heroine. At first, I thought it was a lame power, especially the fact that it only works for her. But it’s an advantage when it comes to choices, right?

Each chapter never fails to surprise me. She’s searching into two paths, one if she agrees to stay with her dad and the other is to stay with her mom. Somehow, events are interrelated, characters seem to be amusing. Duke is the guy if she picks to stay with her mom, that means she also stays in the compound along with the other people with abilities. He’s a quarterback, star player, a hotlicious guy. On her dad side, Trevor is the guy. He’s a silent-type, he reads comics and he draws, he used to be the star player too before he got injured. I was almost nearing the end of the book when I realized who’s her real love interest. I was so confused at first, Duke is such a hottie, you know, every one’s dream boyfriend. Trevor is different, he’s like the one you’ll choose to spend your life with. Ok, so yeah, I’m Team Trevor on this one. *squeals* *fan-girling*

I love this book and it such a pain to wait for the second book next year! I want to grab the whole series now!

Highly Anticipated Books of 2014

Hi everyone!

I just want to share my top 12 highly anticipated books that will be published in 2014. It’s already more than halfway of the year so I had an idea to share this. However, I only included those with official covers. I will update this list by the end of the year. I hope the others will have their covers by then.

Gorgeous covers, right? Some of them are the final installment of the series such as Into the Still Blue, Ignite Me, The Offering and Evertrue. I can’t wait for these books!  I hope it’s 2014 already! LOL! 🙂
