Description

Cloud Atlas meets Orphan Black in this epic dimension-bending trilogy by New York Times bestselling author Claudia Gray about a girl who must chase her father's killer through multiple dimensions.

Marguerite Caine's physicist parents are known for their groundbreaking achievements. Their most astonishing invention, called the Firebird, allows users to jump into multiple universes—and promises to revolutionize science forever. But then Marguerite's father is murdered, and the killer—her parent's handsome, enigmatic assistant Paul— escapes into another dimension before the law can touch him.

Marguerite refuses to let the man who destroyed her family go free. So she races after Paul through different universes, always leaping into another version of herself. But she also meets alternate versions of the people she knows—including Paul, whose life entangles with hers in increasingly familiar ways. Before long she begins to question Paul's guilt—as well as her own heart. And soon she discovers the truth behind her father's death is far more sinister than she expected.

A Thousand Pieces of You explores an amazingly intricate multi-universe where fate is unavoidable, the truth elusive, and love the greatest mystery of all.

From Publishers Weekly

Sep 29, 2014 – Marguerite Cain is the daughter of two famous scientists behind a device called the Firebird, which allows people to travel to other dimensions where they occupy the bodies of their alternate selves. When a graduate student named Paul murders Marguerite's father and escapes into another dimension, Marguerite and another graduate student, the handsome Theo, risk their lives by trying to catch him. As they move among multiple dimensions, Marguerite contends with a roller coaster of dangers, stress, and unexpected romance, while questioning the ethics of taking over the other Marguerites' lives. Her feelings about Theo and Paul are also thrown into flux as she meets alternate versions of these young men. Gray (the Evernight series) gets her Firebird series off to an action-packed start; while certain plot points resolve too easily and predictably, the fascinating worlds and eras Marguerite visits make these drawbacks easily forgiven. Marguerite's foray into czarist Russia as a member of the House of Romanov is a particular highlight as Gray effortlessly moves between the SF, historical, and contemporary aspects of her story. Ages 14 up.

Must read!!

The book involves traveling through multiple dimensions which was one of the coolest parts!! Each dimension is unique while staying quite the same, there complex in their own way. There's a slight love triangle in the book which some people love, I don't perticularly care for them but the book was still amazing! A must read go ahead and buy it!!!!

"A Thousand Pieces of You"

I finished this book in three days. I refused to put it down. The twists are unbelievable and the characters are all fascinating and fun. I can't wait for the rest of the "Firebird" series to come out. This entire book was an amazing adventure, for Marguerite and for myself.

LOVE

So different. Unique. So happy it's not your typical sci-fi/dystopian teen novel. Only downside to this book is that I have to wait God knows how long for the next one because I'm 100% hooked. Firebird ftw.
