Publisher: Sugar Skull Books
Edition: ebook given for the blog tour in exchange for an honest review

Summary from Goodreads:

Destiny has a way of catching up.

Saddled with powers she doesn't understand, Etta Fleming's world is turned upside-down the day she meets Cooper Everett, the man who transports her to an alternate reality. A reality she was meant to be a part of.

One minute, she's an orphan living at Dominion House for Girls, an institution for delinquent foster kids, then finds herself attending the exclusive Dominion Hall Academy.

Plucked from the only world she's ever known, Etta now has to deal with an aunt she never knew, a boyfriend she doesn't know, and a best friend who can't know.

PARALLEL is the first book in the Travelers Series.

Review By Alaiel Kreuz:

Were to begin? I think that the only way to explain what I felt with this hook is to be honest. A month ago a friend recommend me "Fringe", the tv series, you know that series, right? It's about impossible things turning possible. And one of this crazy but intriguing possibilities are parallel universes.

I'm simply in love with this matter, it makes me think, makes me want to understand things that are beyond reality. That's the reason I loved this book. "Parallel" was everything I expected and much, much more.

There are so many questions I would like to ask the author, Claudia, now that I have read the book but I think I'm just going to wait for the second part, I believe it's going to be as exciting, fun and clever as this book.

Don't hesitate, if you have the opportunity just buy it. I mean, I read this book really fast, I couldn't and, to be honest, wouldn't stop turning pages. Is not only the twists but the fact that, even if you are not a fan of science, the plot is not very complicated and the ending... I wish I could tell you more but you need to read it, seriously.
