Unraveling by Elizabeth Norris



Synopsis from HarperTeen.com: 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.

  5. Well, that's a pretty good list. It sounds like I really must check this out sometime. I like that the love interest isn't your typical jock. I never fell for those types, so it doesn't relate to me when I read about it. LOL I think a friend of mine would enjoy all the X-Files references.

  6. "3. The romantic interest is NOT a hot, popular, football player." LOL Anna, that's you and your awesome way of saying that Elizabeth Norris doesn't know cliches, and I love you for it! <3 I'd take brilliant Ben and all his sweetness/awesomeness/badassness over your typical jock any day x) I just loved this book so much and I remember being ecstatic that you did too in your review, so I think you make the perfect girl to host the Unraveling stop! ;)

    Looooove your list, Anna-banana! Book 2 is going to take forever to come after that ending! :') <3
