You know that feeling you get when you’re watching the movie and you know what’s going to happen but the main character still goes for it and you’re sitting there just yelling at the screen? Well that’s how pretty much I felt throughout the book, wanting Abbie to stop her Search.
The story takes place in Compound – a place hidden in the mountains where only people with special abilities live. Staying secret from every other Norm people is their mission and while they work on expanding their abilities, they make sure that everyone is safe and lives under specific rules. When Abbie comes home one day, she is greeted with news that her parents are getting a divorce and she needs to decide who she wants to live with. To do that she will need to use her ability to see into the future and figure out which one will play out best for her.
The whole book was not what I expected. I thought that when she looks into the future, there would be some sort of conflict like every other story I have read. But I experienced both of the alternate futures that Abbie saw which was pretty emotional. Going through six weeks of different futures was like a rollercoaster because I knew it wasn’t real but yet all of the emotions were there and made me on edge.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone and cannot wait for the second book to come out!
