Waiting on Wednesday: A Thousand Pieces of You
'Waiting on' Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Breaking the Spine. :)
This week's pick is:
A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray
Expected Publication Date: November 4th, 2014
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.
First, can we just take a minute to talk about how gorgeous this cover is? Everything about it is beautiful, and I could stare at it forever. Not really, but kind of. Second, I have yet to read a sci-fi YA novel, so I'm so excited for this to hopefully be my first. A Thousand Pieces of You has love, murder, and different dimensions, some of my favorite things in fiction! I can't wait to read it.
