A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray
Summary: Meg has grown up in a world of her own. A world where her parents let her pursue her passion and a world where she has always been able to see the brilliance of her parent's work. She has gotten close to Theo and Paul, but everything changes when her parent's invention, the Firebird, is stolen Meg's father is killed and Paul uses the Firebird to jump into a different dimension. Theo and Meg automatically believe Paul was the one who killed Meg's father and in order to get revenge they follow Paul to whatever dimension he jumped into. In this dimension, the technology is extremely advanced and Meg has lost her whole family and lives with her aunt instead. Luckily Theo is close by and they meet up and go find Paul. *scroll down for spoilers*
Opinion: At first I have to admit I was a bit confused as to what was going on, but after a couple pages in I was hooked. This was one heck of a story and my family can confirm how much I was talking about this and especially how much I wanted to pre-order the next book! I love EVERY SINGLE PART of this book, and it is definitely one of my favorite books now. The whole idea of this story really captivated me. From the dimension traveling to the plotline. However I have to admit my favorite part would be Meg seeing herself in different dimensions because the variety can't help but make you imagine what you might be like if there are different dimensions. In one world you could be an astronaut and another a surfer, the possibilities are endless and that amazes me.
Now, let's talk about the absolutely amazing characters and plot. It's probably obvious my favorite characters are Meg and Paul, but honestly I have to say that through reading this I really like her parents?! Does that seem weird... It's just because of how brilliant, creative, and brave they are. I think that the characteristics her parents have are traits many people wish for. OK NOW THE PLOT <3 I LOVE IT. Although ALL of the plot line was absolutely amazing, my favorite had to be the plot twists I had NO IDEA were coming. They only made me even more entranced with the story and I know I won't forget what happened in this book! *scroll down for spoilers*
Read if You like: sci-fi, love, dimension travel, adventure, plot twists, a great book
Cover: 5/5 (This cover is INCREDIBLY beautiful can I give it a 6?)
Favorite Quote: "I would love you in any shape, in any world, with any past. Never doubt that."
Summary Spoilers: Meg quickly finds out Paul was not behind her father's death, but Theo doesn't believe her. Paul leaves this dimension and soon Theo and Meg follow. In this dimension Meg is a Russian princess. However the society is not as advanced and so Theo can't get to Meg is this dimension, not to mention Meg's broken Firebird. Meg ends up spending a lot of time as a princess and with the Paul in this dimension. However, Meg really is spending time with the Paul in THIS dimension because Paul got his Firebird taken away. While Meg tries to get her Firebird fixed Meg bonds with Paul and forms a secret relationship with him. However events happen including a battle and Paul dies and Meg has to jump into the next dimension. Her Paul made it to the next dimension, but here Meg soon finds out that the REAL traitor is Theo and that her father IS STILL ALIVE. With the help of Paul she is able to bring back her father and everything is great and everyone is happy.
Opinion Spoilers:I WAS SO MAD AT OTHER DIMENSION THEO. To be honest... I was sort of rooting for Theo in the beginning, but all that happened and even though the REAL Theo was innocent I feel like he still has a part of the traitor in him. These plot twists were absolutely amazing though and I can't stop telling people I know about this book. I just love it SO MUCH.I also know that I REALLY WANT TO READ THE NEXT BOOK. *clicks pre-order* (EVERYONE SHOULD READ THIS BOOK THOUGH)
A fan of anything fiction, furry, & fun.
