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.

WOW! This book was not what I thought it would be. It was action packed, suspenseful, and there was romance! What more could a book lover ask for? The majority of the book is split between Addie's two possible futures. It was so cool how Kasie West structured the book. The two futures had similarities and it was so interesting to see how the mystery unfolded from both futures. I was completely enthralled and captivated by the story. The book was more centered on the plot rather than characters. I mean it is kind of hard when there are two possible paths the character could take. It was a very unusual world and not a lot was explained. I would like to more about Addie's home and how people developed abilities and why her's is so special. I feel like the second book will cover more of this while this one mainly focused on the issue at hand. It was so interesting during the book to figure out where the story was going and I can't wait to see what will happen in the sequel!

Until next time fellow readers, which path will you choose?
xoxo Sarah
