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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great story with parallel universes! 4.5 stars OK, I know there is a lot of hype. And that made me a little nervous going into this book. But overall, I really enjoyed it! I loved all the twists and turns, and even though I kind of figured out who was behind everything early on, it was so much more complex than I thought. I also loved that it doesn't set itself up for a sequel. Yes, there are lots of unanswered questions but they are more in the background and the character conflicts are wrapped up nicely in the end of this book. So, try to go into this book without thinking of the hype and that it is going to be this amazing wonderful story, and I think you will be humbly surprised by it. Overall, I highly recommend!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed I was so exited to read this book. Turned out to be just another cheesey teen romance-love triangle with a science fiction like plot thrown in to make it different from all the other books out there. If you're looking for a romance try this, if you want sci fi keep searching

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is one of my favorite YA books this year! I loved the different worlds that the characters jump into. I especially enjoyed the Russian dimension and the storyline with Paul. OMG! Heartbreaking! There is a bit of a love triangle but it is settled fairly early on. I had a strong suspicion about which one of the men was up to no good and I was proven right but I never predicted everything that went on. I couldn't wait to see what world they would end up in next and I can't wait for the next book!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great characters and world-building! Marguerite Claine?s parents are physicists who have invented the Firebird, a way to allow its users into parallel universes. When Marguerite?s father is murdered by someone her family trusted, one of her parents? assistants Paul, she doesn?t think twice about chasing his murderer through the dimensions. Armed with her own Firebird and Theo, another one of her parents? assistants, Marguerite finds herself in worlds vastly different than her own trying to track down Paul. But the closer she gets to catching Paul, the more Marguerite questions his guilt, and her feelings. Hello cover, you?re so pretty. The cover alone made this book one of my most anticipated fall releases but after reading the synopsis, I was excited about the book for more than just the cover. And it didn?t disappoint. I really enjoyed the whole concept of the book. The world building was complex while being easy to follow. The science and theories of traveling to alternate universes was present but not overwhelming; I actually found the science quite interesting. The worlds Marguerite visited were so different from ours, a futuristic London, Russia just starting the industrial revolution, a world where people lived in underwater dwellings. The descriptions of them all were amazing. Marguerite was a character I liked right away. She was different from her family, loving art instead of science, and it was great to see that her parents were supportive. She obviously cared for her family, and she included the many assistants her parents had over the years as part of that family. Her plan definitely wasn?t thought out but I could completely understand her willingness to just throw herself into catching her father?s killer without thinking too much about the consequences. I also found her to be a strong character throughout the book. She had insecurities and flaws but she was also caring and determined and talented and driven. My favourite thing about her though was that she was always questioning things that seemed off, even if other people were telling her to ignore the uneasy feeling. I loved how complicated everything got and how there was some ethical dilemmas that came into play. When the characters jumped into an alternate universe, they were basically jumping into the bodies of their alternate selves, kind of borrowing the body while they were in that dimension. Decisions they made while inhabiting their alternate selves could affect the other them after they left. The relationships between the characters were some of my favourite parts. There were so many different interactions. Marguerite and Theo were very flirty and fun, Marguerite and Paul were complicated as she began questioning his guilt, Marguerite and her Russian siblings from one of the alternate universes were cute and I probably could have read a whole book on them alone. Theo and Paul were close, described like brothers more than once in the book, and it made things even more complicated when they both had feelings for Marguerite. The plot was full of twists, which is something I will always love. Some of them I was able to guess but they were things I had wanted to happen so I was okay with that. It was definitely an emotional ride, tears, smiles, laughs, more tears, a little outrage and denial that the next book is so very far away. This is definitely a book I will remember. And again, that cover! *I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Job. Love the way author describe the multi-dimension. It was very interesting that the character also changes themselves depends on which dimension they are on.
