A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Grey (Book Summary)

Margaret is the daughter of the scientist’s Henry Caine and Sophia Klankova. She has a sister named Josephine and two companions like her brother, Paul Makjov and Theo. Margaret went on a search for her father’s killer – Paul. Henry died, and it seemed like Paul betrayed them. He messed up Henry’s break and also their laboratory, which slowed down their experiments and inventions. Henry and Sophia invented the Firebird, a device (a necklace) that allows a person to travel to different dimensions. There are many dimensions (as what they believed) that an individual exists.

In the first dimension they landed, Margaret stayed with her Aunt Susannah since her family (Henry, Sophia, and Josie) were already dead. In that life, Margaret there wants to be a fashion designer. During that journey, she discovered Theo drinking green liquid, and she assumed that he was doing drugs. They also caught Paul, who was with Wyatt Conley – the technology tycoon. He was the one funding the firebird equipment. Paul and Theo fought because their agenda was to kill Paul for killing Henry, but Theo got on the train accident, leaving Paul and Margaret, which gave Paul the chance to explain himself.

On their second journey, Margaret was Grand Duchess Margarita, and she had 3 siblings, Vladimir, Peter, and Katya. And their father was the Tsar V., but she knows he’s not her father. Her mother, the queen, died after giving birth to Peter. She had an affair with Henry in that life. He was the Royal Tutor. Theo is nowhere around the castle, but Paul is Lieutenant Markov, her personal Guard. During that life, she had sex with Paul, and that was when she was sure she loved him. The problem was her Firebird was broken, and Paul’s superior/colonel confiscated his Firebird, and Paul lost his memory (this is what happens when a person travels between dimensions). Margaret doesn’t lose her memory, though, because she was chosen by Wyatt, and a device gave her that ability. She ended up making Professor Kaine fix the Firebird. Paul from Russa died from war, and because the Firebird was set, she leaped to another dimension.

On the 3rd dimension, she’s home, but it’s different because her dad is alive, everything is normal, and Paul simply blew up the lab, but she still has to work on something. Together with Theo, she went to the Tried building, she met Wyatt Conley, and they were headed to Lab II when Paul stopped her thru text. She went to Paul, and he explained that Wyatt wanted to control her because Paul, Theo, Henry, and Sophia loved her. She’s someone he could use against them. Also, she’d be a good spy because she doesn’t forget things after leaping on a dimension.

On the 4th dimension, both her parents are oceanographers, and so was Paul. She and her sister Josie help around too. They were on a ship, then she heard her father humming the Beatles song, and she realized that the band didn’t exist in that dimension. She used the Firebird to remind him, and it really was him. Henry is alive!

Truth: When he came out of the university, a woman came and brought him to another dimension, and it was Theo who messed up the breaks and framed Paul. Theo is a spy. They are on a submarine at that time. Paul called and said he was on his way when he mentioned that he drank green liquid to help him remember that green juice is what spies use, and she remembered that she saw Theo drinking it. She fought Theo, left him in a submarine, and snatched his Firebird so she could go home and Henry too.

When she went home, her mom and Josie were so happy because Henry was back and they knew the truth because Paul had left them a letter. Theo was there too, the real one and not the spy. Their family was reunited. Theo somehow lost his chance with Margaret. Paul ended up pursuing Margaret. Happy Ending!

Just reading and writing my way out of this messy adult life! I have transitioned from having piles of notebooks stacked underneath my bed from writing on the internet and allowing people worldwide to read.
