Through to You is a unique and fresh sci-fi/paranormal story about what it would be like to have a second chance… in a parallel universe. Cam, the protagonist, lost his girlfriend Viv in a tragic car accident that he believes he caused. He’s overcome with guilt and grief, and would do anything to have her back. When he sees Nina disappear into what he discovers is a parallel universe where Viv is still alive, he is desperate to find her and be with her again.
I thought Emily Hainsworth did a fantastic job with characterization. Cam’s grief was palpable, and all the characters were solid. I liked how she worked in possessiveness and love, and made me evaluate those emotions and how they do, or don’t, fit together. I really enjoyed the dynamics between Cam, Nina, and Viv, and also Cam and his mother.
When I finished Through to You, I just wanted to talk to someone about it and discuss all the intricacies of parallel universes! It made me analyze how our personalities form, and think about the decisions that shape our lives. If you’re concurrently in multiple dimensions and have the same name and parents, are you really the same person? What makes you, you? I love when a book stirs up so much emotion and thought, that I think about it long after I’ve read the last page. I can’t wait to read more from Emily Hainsworth!
