Breaking the Spine features a weekly event where we talk about the books we can't wait to read.
This week I'm waiting on:
A Thousand Pieces of You (Firebird #1)
By: Claudia Gray
Release Date: November 4, 2014
Publisher: Harper Teen
Marguerite Caine’s physicist parents are known for their radical scientific achievements. Their most astonishing invention: the Firebird, which allows users to jump into parallel universes, some vastly altered from our own. But when Marguerite’s father is murdered, the killer—her parent’s handsome and enigmatic assistant Paul—escapes into another dimension before the law can touch him.Marguerite can’t let the man who destroyed her family go free, and she races after Paul through different universes, where their lives entangle in increasingly familiar ways. With each encounter she begins to question Paul’s guilt—and her own heart. Soon she discovers the truth behind her father’s death is more sinister than she ever could have imagined.A Thousand Pieces of You explores a reality where we witness the countless other lives we might lead in an amazingly intricate multiverse, and ask whether, amid infinite possibilities, one love can endure.
I saw this book at the ALA 2014 and I was immediately excited about the cover, the premise, the whole idea of this book. I can't wait for it to come out. I love Portal fantasies and parallel universes.
