Unraveling (Unraveling #1) by Elizabeth Norris

Synopsis: 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, Janelle knows—with every fiber of her being—that Ben has somehow brought her back to life.

But her reincarnation, 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.

WARNING: THIS BOOK CONTAINS SPOILERS NOT FOR THE EYES OF HOSE WHO HAVEN'T READ IT YETAlso, sorry for my horribly writen review with way too many spoilers down there. It's early and I'm tired!

"I'm still not a single step closer to figuring out what to do to stop this countdown.

Which means I've become obsessed with it-as if watching it tick might somehow make it slow down or at least not feel like it's speeding up.

Which is why at 5:10 p.m. on Sunday evening, I know the exact moment four days to Wave Function Collapse becomes three.

03:23:59:59" (pg 332)


YES. I love Ben, and Alex, and Jared, and her father, and Struz, and Janelle, and even Elijah. (Reid is not to be spoken about during this review -_- ) Yes, the characters were brilliant. (view spoiler)That's why I was so sad when I realized about half of them died at the end of the book :( Seriously, this book was fabulous. The only downside was that, during the beginning of the novel, I already had the book set up in my mind, like what was going to happen in the end and all that, but my idea was no where NEAR what actually happened in the book. And wow this book was well thought out from literally, the beginning to end.

Part of the reason for the five star rating I gave it was, honestly, the cover! I only like covers with actual people if they look the same as what I would think of them in my mind, and this cover fits EXACTLY to Ben and Janelle. (And Ben.....oh my...just..can I have him? Please?) Everything in this book fits so perfectly to the beginning where Janelle died from the TRUCK and Ben healed her to (view spoiler)Barclay helping Janelle and Ben and telling them about the multiverse. This book was seriously well thought out. The humor in this book made me laugh out loud and Janelle's personality was awesome (Her saying that she's a nerd by liking certain things or doing things when she was little. Also, her love of swimming.) And, from the "About The Author", this is Elizabeth Norris's first book. All I can say, this book has gone beyond my expectations (or rather, my idea of what will actually hapen in the book before reading it!) This book earned it's five stars and, oh my God I can't stop looking at Ben in the cover!
