Zoya: Part One of the Zoya Trilogy by Alexandra
What if one day you learned that you had a double - an exact replica of you, but living in a different country? And what if you swapped places with that person and started living their life? And what if you liked their life better than your own? Zoya Kassatkina is twelve years old, and her life in 1989 Moscow is pure torture. She is bullied at school, her best friend moves away, her parents don’t understand her, and she has to wear an ugly uniform dress rather than beautiful jeans. One day, when the meanest boy at school, Yegor Vlasov, takes it too far, Zoya is knocked unconscious and wakes up...in Paris. There, Zoya's life is perfect. She even has a best friend! Zoya sets out to enjoy Paris to the fullest, except, it’s not really her life. She has taken the place of another girl, Zoé, who has disappeared. But before Zoya can understand what happened to her and Zoé, she is thrown back to dreary Moscow! Zoya will do anything to get back to Paris. It’s the life that she truly deserves! She employs the help of her only friend, Alexei Kulikov, to do so. But first, she needs to understand how she ended up in Paris in the first place. Did she discover a parallel universe? Did she travel in time? Or was it all just a dream? As Zoya seeks answers, she learns about our multidimensional world and transforms her reality, as well as that of the people around her.
