I have to say, that this book was so different than anything else I’ve read. I’m a huge fan of doppelgangers, clones, and alternate dimensions or parallel universes, so basically what I’m trying to say is this book was right up my alley, and I was really stoked to read it once I gave the description another view before actually starting it. Though I haven’t read anything by the author before, this book has opened me up to them. I hope you love it as much as I did.
Beginning like any other young adult novel, it shows a couple of teenagers in young love. Tatiana and Priya are very close, though Priya’s parents don’t know about them because she’s too scared to tell them. Tatiana is adopted to some beautifully created hippy parents that I would love to have gotten to know a little more of, but that’s not important. She also has seizures, or me-zures as they’re sometimes referred to. That’s where it gets strange.
When she has those kind of episodes, it’s like any other seizure, except that her brain doesn’t react to it in scans, and there’s a white tunnel that appears above her head that she feels mysteriously drawn to. What could it be? Well it turns out, that it’s actually a portal to her other selves in parallel universes. Isn’t that insane? I can’t even imagine what that would be like, but I think that the book did a really amazing job of explaining it.
I loved this book for so many reasons. I know that usually teen books are for teens, but I’ve always been a fan of young adult fiction, and just because I’m not a teenager anymore doesn’t mean I’m going to suddenly switch up on the genre, although I have integrated more kinds of books into my reading. The characters are super realistic, despite the crazy things that happen to them, and also some of them aren’t American, which is just really cool to read about, seeing as Tatiana seems so American in her timeline.
Overall, I really think that this book is one I’m going to remember for a long time, and it’s something I want other people to read. If you get a chance, I definitely recommend giving this book a chance, even if you don’t think you’d like it. Who knows? You might be surprised. It was a solid length too, and I’m glad I got the chance to read it.
