Quantum Coin (Coin #2) by E.C. Myers
Publish Date: Oct. 2, 2012
I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
Ephraim thought he was completely done universe hopping and he's settled in at home, dating Jena Kim and having a great time with his bestie. But then at the Prom things begin to go wrong. Jena leaves for the restroom and when she returns she's wearing different clothes and grabs him for a kiss. But who's that behind her? One Jena...one Zoe.
Apparently the multiverse is unraveling and Zoe has kept in contact with Nathaniel and they need help fixing it. Who better to help fix it than someone who has traveled it?
The writing is excellent and the details and information are outstanding. The characters are individuals and they never get confusing, even when 3 or more analogs of the same person are in the same room. They are all individuals, with their own personalities. It's interesting to see how one person could turn out so many different ways due to circumstances and upbringing. It really shows nature vs. nurture!
I really love how E.C. Myers throws in little nerdy pop culture references. They made it a lot of fun! There's a good amount of humor in the book, even though it's a serious matter, what with worlds unraveling and all. Jena still reads a lot, the boys still talk about sex (but no one does it) and there's always time for a good joke/reference. It's more like real life, I think.
Another great book by E.C. Myers! I really hope that there's more to come, he does a great job explaining things and making learning fun.
