Synopsis
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. (Goodreads)
Why I'm Waiting
A MULTIVERSE?! First off, I love books that take place in other worlds. I am a HUGE fan of fantasy. Secondly, it's a MULTIVERSE! For those of you who are wondering why I am so excited, or why a multiverse is such a big deal, I'll throw in a definition.
Definition of multiverse
noun
a theoretical reality that includes a possibly infinite number of parallel universes
An infinite number of parallel universes? And in these parallel universes are other you's who are living entirely different lives? This sounds mindfuckingly wonderful! I just hope it doesn't disappoint.

I'm less than thrilled with the hints at a love triangle, but at least there seems to be a purpose behind it.

I can't wait for Tandem! What are you waiting on this week?
