Title: A Thousand Pieces of You
   Author: Claudia Gray
   Format: Hardcover
   Release Date: November 4th, 2014

     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.

My Stance:

     Claudia Gray comes back to the world with a novel that is is covered is gorgeous colors. I wondered what the cover had to do with the synopsis and frankly I needed to reread it to understand. The whole multiverse is kicking it off this year isn't it? What I fail to see though in this book is how this book is anything like Every Day by David Levithan, am I just missing it?  What is with people killing someone and then running off into another universe/reality and managing to be safe for a while, it just seems like a usual ploy and I am starting to get bored with the overused plot.

     However, this book is a great top release this year. I love how well rounded Marguerite is, even if she just jump off the crazy train casing some guy that supposedly killed her father. I mean I know that the synopsis hints at doubt, but at the potential there could be, realistically she could be dead as soon as she crosses a border. I know that I try not to compare book at all, but what sets this book apart? Does Marguerite fall for another version of Paul (her fathers murderer?) or is there some secret group after him? It is hard to tell, but makes me want to read the book that much more.
