Review: I didn’t really know what I was going to get from this book when I first saw it, and of course I didn’t really read the back of it. I just thought ” Oh I heard Claudia Gray had a new book, and since its here at the library I might as well pick it up”. I regret nothing!
Anyway I have read just about all of Claudia Gray’s books and some have been really great and while others have not been so great. But when I read this book it was like finding her and reading her books all over again. I just fell in love…
This book was so beautiful and so full of color and everything. ( sorry I am unable to express the right words for this book). This book just took my breath away, and has yet to give it back to me.
The plot line does take a little bit to pick up and really take off, but once you do its hard to stop. Its the same with the characters also, you just have to read a bit more to warm up to them. But once you do, you will not regret a single thing.
Marguerite and Paul are super intense characters and just continue to grow the more they travel through the different parallel dimensions ( which are also super cool to read about). I can not talk enough about this book, plot, and characters!
4 out of 5 stars.

Summary: Every Day meets Cloud Atlas in this heart-racing, space- and time-bending, epic new trilogy from New York Times bestselling author Claudia Gray.
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.
