Everything repeats.
You. Your best friend. Every person you know.
Many worlds. Many lives--infinite possibilities.
Welcome to the multiverse.

Sixteen-year-old Sasha Lawson has only ever known one small, ordinary life. When she was young, she loved her grandfather's stories of parallel worlds inhabited by girls who looked like her but led totally different lives. Sasha never believed such worlds were real--until now, when she finds herself thrust into one against her will.

To prevent imminent war, Sasha must slip into the life of an alternate version of herself, a princess who has vanished on the eve of her arranged marriage. If Sasha succeeds in fooling everyone, she will be returned home; if she fails, she'll be trapped in another girl's life forever. As time runs out, Sasha finds herself torn between two worlds, two lives, and two young men vying for her love--one who knows her secret, and one who thinks she's someone she's not.

The first book in the Many-Worlds Trilogy, Tandem is a riveting saga of love and betrayal set in parallel universes in which nothing--and no one--is what it seems.

This book was amazing!  The characters made the story and I just couldn't put it down. I have to say that I fell in love with Callum even as a side character and not being in the story until towards the middle to end. He was such a cute nice guy that I could even see getting his own story. I still slightly wonder if it was all a setup, though. Its always in the back of my head in stories like this of who is going to stab whom in the back. 

This has got to be one of the best parallel world stories I've read in some time.  It was pretty easy to understand the concept which was great and the story had a great pace.  The science of how it's done didn't get in the way of understanding the story at all.  The world that Jarzab has created comes alive and I loved how she made a new world out of ours.  And why it was so different.  It made perfect understandable sense.  

The characters were fabulous!  I really loved Sasha and Thomas they were so good together each strong and flawed. You could really relate to each of them and their issues throughout the story.  And I can't wait to see what happens with their story in book two. 

I loved the thought of being able to see the northern lights all over the world. It would so be a sight to see!  I wonder what else is different from our world to theirs.  And I really can't wait to read book two. Which I have via Bookoutlet. 

Ok so now the bad thing!! While I was reading this book I decided to see if book three was out since I knew it was a trilogy. And I found this not on Goodreads that well the publisher decided not to publish a book three. Which makes me really sad.  This is an amazing story that should get to be finished.
