Pivot Point by Kasie West
February 12, 2012 by HarperTeen
Reminiscent of the movie Sliding Doors, Pivot Point is about a girl who has the power to Search alternate futures. When faced with a life changing decision, she lives out six weeks of two different lives (in alternating chapters), both holding the potential for love and loss, and must ultimately choose which path she is willing to live through.
Pivot Point sounds so freaking amazing, doesn't it? I am dying to get my hands on this one! AND I LOVE THE COVER SO MUCH. *pets screen*

And now the interview!
I love your cover. I’m sitting here staring at it, trying to think of what I like the most about it and all I can think is, “I love it I love it I love it.” Amazing cover! What is one cover that you absolutely freaking love (besides your own)?
It is so hard to pick. I love so many covers for so many different reasons. But I'm a huge fan of "movement" in covers so some of my very favorite are: Hourglass and Timepiece by Myra McEntire.
I love those cover so, so much! Absolutely gorgeous. If you had to pick, what is your favorite part about your cover? I don’t think I can pick. Honestly, I love it all.
I love so much about it, but one of my favorite things is the placing of the title. I think the vertical title adds the perfect split to the cover that not only fits the book so well but makes the cover stand out.
Did you have any say in your cover?
I did, actually. They asked me if I had any ideas and I gave them a few. One of my thoughts was a girl looking at herself. But let me say, they did it so much cooler than I had pictured it.
When you saw your cover, what did you do?
I stared for a long time. I saw my cover in front of my agent and editor so I felt like I had to like it. And they were both so excited for me to look at it. So I stared for a long time because I had to kind of separate my feelings from theirs and make sure I wasn't reacting to it because of their excitement. But after I stared forever, I said, "I love it so much." And then I pretty much stared at it for the next 24 hours straight. My husband wanted to go to dinner (we were in New York) and I said, "Can my cover come too?"
Describe your cover in three words.
Gorgeous, Misty, Split
Describe Pivot Point in three words.
Choices, Future, Love
Ooh, good words! I love teasing because it’s always fun to watch people squirm—can you say anything teasing about Pivot Point?
There are so many teasers I could give but how about: Which future will you choose? And will it be the same one Addie ends up in?
Thanks so much for this interview Ashelynn, those were fun questions. I hope you and your readers love my cover as much as I do! But more, I hope you love what's behind the cover the best.
Thank YOU, Kasie! xoxo! What do you think of the cover, guys?
