Coming Attractions: Split Second by Kasie West

Coming Attractions is inspired by The Perpetual Page Turner's Save The Date. Coming Attractions showcases a book that is not released for a while that I've read, and gives you a sneak peek (like a pre-review, if you will) as to what I thought about the book, since I can't post the review until closer to the release date.

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.

Split Second was... CRAZY AWESOME. Can I end my pre-review there? I mean, there isn't anything else to say. Of course, I could just spill all my emotions out but I would spoil the book and would have 5000 million armed readers chasing me down. Now that, would be scary.

I thought I would be able to write something a little helpful or conventional if I left this review alone for a week. Turns out, my feelings are still so much very raw. So sorry if you wanted something helpful. I did try to be helpful, this is what I wrote before I deleted it.

Characters: Addie. Trevor. Laila. EEEEK! All my favs.
Plot: It's simple but fun and has some special secret power to make sure you won't put it down. I read this during school and actually slapped someone in the face for stealing it.
Romance: *deep breaths* ASDFGHJKL; PERFECT. ABSOLUTELY. FREAKING. PERFECT. I went nuts. Completely. Nuts. Drowning in it.
And Laila finds a special someone too...
Were my expecations met?

So yeah, there it is. Just a bunch of craziness. And a note on my rating, I cannot really rate this right now. But definitely a 4, 4.5 or 5 star.

Full review to come on the blog in January.
