I'm obsessed with parallel lives (loved the movie Sliding Doors and the book Pivot Point). Parallel by Lauren Miller has me intrigued and I can't wait to check it out!
Release Date: 5/14/13
Abby Barnes had a plan. Get into a great college, major in journalism, and land her dream job at a major newspaper. But on the eve of her 18th birthday, she's stuck on a Hollywood movie set instead, wishing she could rewind her life. But the next morning, she’s in a dorm room at Yale, with no memory of how she got there.
A collision of parallel worlds has left Abby living a new reality every time her younger parallel self makes a new decision. Forced to live out the consequences of a path she didn't choose, Abby must let go on her plans for the future and learn to focus on the present, without losing sight of who she is, the boy who might just be her soul mate, and the destiny that’s finally in reach.
Sounds great, non? Be sure to pop over next week to see what else we are ardently (yet patiently...sort of) waiting for!
