There is much to like here. Addie is relatable and entirely entertaining — at least in one of her realities. Normal-world Addie seems entirely different from the petty, shallow-girl compound Addie, and her friends are equally annoying. This is a good read with a shocking ending.

Addie has a gift. When confronted with a choice, she can simply close her eyes and see the outcome of either decision. No choice has ever been more important, however, as when her parents calmly inform her that they are divorcing and that she may choose with whom she will live. She can either stay with her mother, in a town filled with people with powers like hers, or move out of the compound with her father. Addie must also choose between two fates — and two boys — to determine her future. (HarperTeen, Feb., 352 pp., $17.99, ISBN: 9780062117373, HC, 13 & Up)
