Summary from Goodreads:

In the multi-verse people may look familiar, but no one is who they seem.

In a small town in Montana, Sophie lives with her quantum physicist mother, and her equally brilliant, but dangerously obsessed, step-father.

Her father disappeared years ago under mysterious circumstances, but Sophie is still haunted by memories of him that seem so real she swears she feels his presence one night as she drifts off to sleep.

Realizing that somehow her missing father is trying to send her a message, Sophie decides to take a big risk.

With her friend, Eli, Sophie must discover what strange experiment her father did and understand the startling impact it has on her world and another, just across the membrane dividing the multi-verse.

My Review:  So confession I love nerdy science stuff, I am after all a nerd so when I read the premise of this book I knew I wanted to read it but I was concerned that maybe it would be over the top I would need a degree in molecular physics or have the brain of Sheldon Cooper to understand. That was NOT the case with this book.  This book was very well written for the girls like me who do not speak physics. Sure ther is a scientific aspect to the book but it was not over the top.

This book is mysterious and you just need to know what happened to Sophie’s father.  It keeps you guessing until the very end.  This was my first experience with this author and I can assure you I will read anything by her.   I loved the way she was able to develop the characters to a complexity that you felt as if you had known them for years.  Her world building and plot building were pretty fantastic too.  I can’t recommend this book enough!
