Dissonance, by Erica O'Rourke

Synopsis: Some decisions have unimaginable consequences.

Every time someone makes a choice, a new parallel world is spun off the existing one. Eating breakfast or skipping it, sneaking out instead of staying in bed—every decision creates an alternate universe in which an Echo self takes the road not travelled. As a Walker who can navigate between these realities, Del is training to help keep the dimensions in harmony.

When Del secretly starts to investigate other dissonant worlds, she get tangled up with an Echo of her longtime crush. She knows she shouldn't keep seeing him. But as Del persists, she uncovers a truth that the Council of Walkers is trying to hide—a secret that threatens the entire multiverse.

Thoughts: **I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.**

The idea of every choice a person makes creating a parallel universe is a fascinating one, and this book does a fabulous job of exploring it.

The main character is very well written, and easy to like. Some of the terminology sent me scrambling for a dictionary, but most of it was explained in the book itself. The story is full of adventure, suspense, and romance. There's a love triangle between the main character and two boys--I have my preference, but I'll keep that to myself for now.

This was a real page-turner, and I look forward to the sequel.

Rating: Five stars
