Unraveling (Unraveling #1) by Elizabeth Norris

Book summary:

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.

My review:

This book really blew me away. I´ve never read anything like it. It has action, romance, intrigue, dead bodies and pkenty of heartstopping situations. I literally stopped breathing  when I read some of the scenes. Unraveling heroine Janelle, is a 17-year old girl who is one of the best female characters I had ever encountered. She is brave, very intelligent and kind. We meet plenty of interesting characters in this book, like Ben, who is really great and I fell in love with him and his story, and Alex, Janelle´s best friend who you can´t help but like. Struz is also great and I look forward to reading about him again. There were a few situations which made me cry, especially the end. I look forward to the sequel ´cause Norris´s writing is fantastic and the story she came with is amazing so "Unraveling" couldn´t have been a better debut.
