Genre : Young Adult ( Science Fiction )
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.
My Less Than Dignified Rant :
On a serious note , how could a book with such a beautiful cover turn out to be a boring wanna be science fiction ? Yes, wanna be science fiction . This was pure love-triangles and messed up relationships more than a science fiction .
Note : Marguerite’s dad is killed and she believes Paul did it . Paul and Theo are her dad’s students .
Let me write the book out for you
Marguerite : I’m going to kill Paul because I think he killed my dad ! I’m going to travel into a dimension I don’t know anything about but I will kill him !
Theo : Sure , girl . I’ll come along , too . Here’s your firebird and let’s go , leaving your mom and sister even though they are already in grief over your father’s death .

Leaps into another dimension
………………….. you know what ? I’m getting tired of writing this . But you see where this is going , aren’t you ? There’s literally nothing in this book ! I didn’t even know why they kept going to other dimensions . It was like a desperate attempt to keep the book fresh . It was irritating , trust me .
Lesson Learned : Don’t judge a book by it’s cover .
What was your worst book cover failure ?
