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.

What attracted me the most at this book was definetely the cover. It looked amazing! The moment i spotted this book i said in my mind "Even tho' i have a kindle, i need this book in a hardbook cover edition!!" so i bought it. The second i touched it and i reached for a chair in the subway, i couldn't stop until i finished it. Unfortunately, it took me only 3 days to finish this book.. i am really sad. I just finished it now. The adventure that Marguerite and Paul, and THEO OMG I WAS SO SHOCKED WHEN I FOUND OUT!!! The scenes between Marguerite and Paul are really catchy and gives you a lot of mixed feelings. Also, if we are talking about what you can feel during this book, the only feeling comes into my mind is CONFUSION. You don't know with who you would want Marguerite to be, who's side's to be and so on. It is so confusing, and yet sooooooooo good.

A thousand lives. A thousand possibilities. One fate.
Marguerite Caine grew up surrounded by cutting-edge scientific theories, thanks to her brilliant physicist parents. Yet nothing is more astounding than her mother's latest invention, a device called the Firebird that allows people to leap into alternate dimensions.
When Marguerite's father is murdered, all the evidence points to one person—Paul, her parents' enigmatic star student. Before the law can touch him, Paul slips into another dimension, having committed what seems like the perfect crime. But he didn't count on Marguerite.
With the help of another physics student, Theo, Marguerite chases Paul through various dimensions. In each new world Marguerite leaps into, she meets another version of Paul that has her doubting his guilt and questioning her heart. Soon, she is swept into an epic love affair as dangerous as it is irresistible.
