A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray

You know the saying, “don’t judge a book by it’s cover”? Well, in this case feel free to do just so. A Thousand Pieces of You has an absolutely breath-taking cover, for an absolutely breath-taking book. The book itself dabbles in everything, from club-hopping, aquatic life, dimensional travel, and tsarist Russia. At first, it’s kind of (ok, really) confusing, but I promise, it will get so much better as Marguerite’s journey through different dimensions (my absolute favorite is the tsarist Russia dimension) progresses. At the heart of it,  A Thousand Pieces of You is the story of Marguerite Caine, daughter of the ground-breaking physicists Sophia Kovalenka and Henry Caine. She’s not exactly as science-orientated as her family though, for her art and painting is much more appealing. Everything’s falling into perfect place for her family, as her parent’s careers in dimensional travel finally begin to take off. That is until her father is assasinated by his assistant, Paul Markov. Paul’s smart though (being a physicist’s assistant is no easy task), stealing the only working dimensional-traveler (called the Firebird) and hopping into a different dimension where no one can ever dream of jailing him for murder. But Marguerite is smarter still. Teaming up with her murdered father’s second assistant, Theo, she uses some of her parents prototypes to leap into the dimension Paul is hiding in, to exact revenge. But in futuristic London, the next dimension over, things don’t go exactly as planned when Marguerite begins to uncover a sinister plot revolving around the Firebird- and her life. Will she be able to uncover the truth before it’s too late?
