Overview

The world's going to end in fire...and it's all Kyle's fault. Kyle Wolfe's world is about to crash and burn. Just weeks away from graduation, a fire kills Kyle's two best friends and leaves him permanently scarred. A fire that Kyle accidentally set the night he cheated on his boyfriend Danny with their female friend, Shira. That same day, a strange new planet, Obscura, appears in the sky. And suddenly Kyle's friends aren't all that dead anymore. Each time Kyle goes to sleep, he awakens to two different realities. In one, his boyfriend Danny is still alive, but Shira is dead. In the other, it's Shira who's alive...and now they're friends with benefits. Shifting between realities is slowly killing him, and he's not the only one dying. The world is dying with him. He's pretty sure Obscura has something to do with it, but with his parents' marriage imploding and realities shifting each time he closes his eyes, Kyle has problems enough without being the one in charge of saving the world...

    A Refreshingly Original YA

    This book was unlike any other YA book I've read. The entire time I read it I was thinking about it as a film and how suited it would be as a cult/Indie classic. It was just so damn original. The main relationship was M/M which isn't my preference in a book, but I didn't mind it in the slightest and I was really rooting for them to make it. The writing was wonderful and engaging and the characters had depth and were very likeable, even Maya, who was blunt and awful at times. If I were to say one bad thing about the novel it would be concerning the beginning. I felt it could have been set up a little better and it took me a few chapters to orient myself as to what was going on. But I forgave this easily as I continued reading. My favourite part about it: the ending. It kept me guessing all the way to the end.
