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, 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.

Whew, super fun book! There were so many things I loved, namely Janelle (she's pretty cool, and tough!) and Ben (of course, he's sweet and hot!), but a couple of things were a bit too over-the-top. Possibly. I don't know what I'm talking about really, but Janelle, she's got all this baggage! It's kind of crazy, I don't think ANY person, let alone a teenager, could handle all of the stuff she's got going on without having a nervous breakdown! I know I would!!! And although she does come close to losing her shit a couple of times, for the most part she holds it together. So, like I said, a bit over-the-top. Overall, though, the book is really well-done (couple of mistakes I caught, and I'm normally not super-observant like that, but in one scene Janelle breaks her cell phone, and then ten minutes later, she's making a call on it. Another time, Ben's saying he hasn't seen his family in ten years, but in reality it's been seven. Bam, hire me as an editor, people!) There's tons of action, twists, and some hubba hubba going on, and I can't wait to read Unbreakable!
