My book talk:  Marguerite struggles her alternate self’s roles while she chases her father’s killer through dimensions of the multiverse, wondering who she can trust.

The artistic teen has heard her scientist parents discuss time-dimension theory and the reality of traveling to choice-created multiverse worlds with grad students over the years. But she never dreamed that quiet Paul would steal the operable Firebird device and kill her father! Luckily, Theo had saved prototypes and created two upgraded Firebirds, so away they go into the multiverse to find Paul before he strikes again.

As she slams into the body of herself in tech-advanced London, low-tech Russia, and an undersea habitat, she recognizes family members and friends in very different combinations – and begins to believe that Paul isn’t a murderer.

Why is Theo so intent on capturing his fellow grad student?

Each choice made by each person creates spinoff multiverse dimensions, with a dark presence lurking in each today, waiting for Marguerite. First in a trilogy. (One of 6,000 books recommended on www.abookandahug.com)
