In the multi-verse people may look familiar, but no one is who they seem.
In a small town in Montana, Sophie lives with her quantum physicist mother, and her equally brilliant, but dangerously obsessed, step-father.
Her father disappeared years ago under mysterious circumstances, but Sophie is still haunted by memories of him that seem so real she swears she feels his presence one night as she drifts off to sleep.
Realizing that somehow her missing father is trying to send her a message, Sophie decides to take a big risk.
With her friend, Eli, Sophie must discover what strange experiment her father did and understand the startling impact it has on her world and another, just across the membrane dividing the multi-verse.

Membrane is an interesting young adult science fiction novel from Michele Corriel. Sophie's father is missing, presumed dead, but one day she feels his presence. It's as if he's trying to communicate with her, possibly from another world. While her step-father rages around the house in obsessive fits, Sophie enlists the help of her friend Eli to comb through her father's research. Her father is out there somewhere and she's the only one who cares enough to find him.
Membrane opens with what seems like the beginning of a contemporary romance. Sophie and Eli dance around romantic feelings, but when Sophie becomes determined to find her father the novel reveals itself to be a science fiction read. The real adventure doesn't start until the second half of the novel when Sophie finds the key to crossing into another dimension. The 'membrane' between the two worlds is weakening and it may have been her father's fault. The other side is a desolate wasteland riddled with freak weather and familiar faces. There's supposedly a connection between the weather and the alternate dimensions, but the increase in storms was like an afterthought. It didn't seem to be the focus of the novel to me. The focus is more so on understanding the reality of multi-verses and the circumstances that allow travel between them.
Readers who loved Jus Accardo's Infinity will find similarities in tone and topic in Membrane. So definitely give this one a read!
