Rec of the month - November 18

Claudia Gray's A Thousand Pieces of You is the first novel in her Firebird-trilogy, a story about Marguerite and the ground-breaking invention her physicist parents have made. It’s a device called a Firebird that allows users to travel between parallel universes. The device, however, is stolen by her parent’s assistant, Paul, who also kills Marguerite’s father. To find answers as to why Paul did it and to reclaim the stolen Firebird, Marguerite uses a Firebird of her own to chase after Paul in universe after universe. Eventually, she’ll find him and when she does, Paul will get his punishment. But traveling between dimensions and meeting different versions of the people she loves the most allows Marguerite to see sides of her loved ones that she hasn’t seen in her own world. Slowly, Marguerite starts to realize that the truth is not at all what she expected but rather much, much worse.

The Raven Boys is the first in a series of four, a strange and magical tale by Maggie Stiefvater about the search for a long-lost Welsh king. In a little Virginia town, four boys attending Aglionby Academy, a private all-boys school, searches for a sleeping king without finding much of anything. Across town is Blue Sargent, the daughter of a psychic and she seems to be the missing link the boys need to finally find the king. Blue, however, does her best to stay away from boys because she’s been told that if she kisses her true love, he will die. Also, Aglionby boys are idiots. But she has always wanted to see magic, to see what her mother can see, if just for a moment. She never really decides to join the boys on their search, it just happens. The adventure they embark upon is one they’ll never forget and neither will you. If you enjoy strange novels about ghosts, psychics and bright orange Camaros, this one is for you!
