Review: Unraveling by Elizabeth Norris

Two days before the start of her junior year, seventeen-year-old Janelle Tenner is hit by a pickup truck and killed—as in blinding light, scenes of her life flashing before her, and then nothing. Except the next thing she knows, she's opening her eyes to find Ben Michaels, a loner from her high school whom Janelle has never talked to, leaning over her. And even though it isn't possible, she knows—with every fiber of her being—that Ben has somehow brought her back to life.

But her revival, and Ben's possible role in it, is only the first of the puzzles that Janelle must solve. While snooping in her FBI agent father's files for clues about her accident, she uncovers a clock that seems to be counting down to something—but to what? And when someone close to Janelle is killed, she can no longer deny what's right in front of her: Everything that's happened—the accident, the murder, the countdown clock, Ben's sudden appearance in her life—points to the end of life as she knows it. And as the clock ticks down, she realizes that if she wants to put a stop to the end of the world, she's going to need to uncover Ben's secrets—and keep from falling in love with him in the process.

From debut author Elizabeth Norris comes this shattering novel of one girl's fight to save herself, her world, and the boy she never saw coming.

The clock is ticking

And Janelle Tenner is going to figure out what its ticking down to, with the help of some friends. Along the way she will get answers from the past, loss and maybe

This was by far the best book of 2012, for me. I don't think I've ever read a book like this and if I have I don't remember it. This was a breath of fresh hair form all the vampires and werewolf books I've been reading. I like how she's trying to piece together the clues and I'm trying to figure it out with her. This book makes you think. I love books like that. There not one thing I didn't like about this book. It was fast paced and there was never a dull moment.

I really liked Janelle, she didn't take crap from anyone and did her own thing. She is real devoted to her family and friends. Her best friend Alex was a complete sweetheart. He wanted to plan his own life and not the life his mother had planned out for him. Last but certainly not least is Ben. He is the gut I would totally fall for. He was real mysterious and smart underneath all that. Nothing is hotter than a bad boy with a brain. ;)
I give this book a HUGE
