The Unraveling by Elizabeth Norris

Thursday, May 24, 2012
RATING: 5 STARS!!
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.

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


Review: The Unraveling is one of the best stories that I’ve read this year by far! Janelle Tenner is an interesting and unique main character, she was extremely likeable. I really loved her personality and her raw emotions throughout the book. I thought it was great that Norris gave plenty of depth to her characters. Having Janelle’s mom and dad really added color to Janelle’s situation. I really enjoyed the throwbacks to TV shows like the X-Files. I’m a big fan of Roswell so I couldn’t help but love this story. In many ways The Unraveling is a lot like it, except better. Elizabeth Norris does a fantastic job telling her story and her writing style is detailed, but easy to follow. I thought it was great that Norris starts the book with some action: Janelle getting hit by a truck. She did a great job catching my attention and kept it throughout the book. I thought Alex’s character was a wonderful addition to the story because he’s such a fantastic best friend and Ben is the perfect love interest! So much so I couldn’t help but swoon over him. Overall, The Unraveling is nothing like I’ve ever read and I can honestly say I have a new found love for Sci-Fi. I can’t wait to read more from Elizabeth Norris!
