Split Second by Kasie West

Title: Split Second (Pivot Point #2)
Author: Kasie West
368 pages, February 11th 2014, HarperTeen
Goodreads' synopsis: "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."

Wow. I have been wanting to read this since I finished Pivot Point, which is a while back, and also a long time to develop high expectations, and I cannot even begin to describe how much Kasie West managed to reach my expectations and even go further than that. I was so happy with how she did this. All the characters were equally as great as in Pivot Point, and I even found Laila more likable this time, which was the only thing I was a bit worried about, because I didn't really like her before. I also really really liked Connor, he was great; I cannot believe that West took all of the things that I like to read about and put them in the amazing world that Pivot Point is set in. Just great.
I have yet to read a book by Kasie West that wasn't amazing, and it makes me even more excited for On the Fence that comes out later this year.
I loved loved loved it!
