This was the kind of mind-bending novel I love; it was offbeat and unsettling like I had just walked through a carnival funhouse--you know, feeling a little off-balance, glimpsing something around the corner but not knowing what it was, or recoiling when seeing your misshapen body in a mirror. Or you just aren't sure of what is real and what is in your mind. I have to admit the whole "multi-verse" thing befuddles me a bit but I left this book with great admiration for the author's beautiful writing, the development of appealing and complicated characters, and how she kept track of all of the plot threads.

Day's book is good for those who liked two of my favorite mind-bender novels The Brief History of the Dead by Kevin Brockmeier, and Iain Reid's Foe. The author was inspired by Tom Perrotta's The Leftovers .

Watch for this book to be published in March 2019. Thanks to the publisher, Random House, for the advance reading copy. I can't wait for the TV movie, series, or whatever it's been purchased to be.
