STOP THE COUNTDOWN. SAVE THE WORLD…
Leaving the beach, seventeen-year-old Janelle Tenner is hit head on by a pickup truck.
Then Ben Michaels, resident stoner, is leaning over her. And even though it isn’t possible, she knows Ben somehow brought her back to life…
Meanwhile, Janelle’s father, a special agent for the FBI, starts working on a case that seems strangely connected to Ben. Digging in his files, Janelle finds a mysterious device – one that seems to be counting down to something that will happen in 23 days and 10 hours time.
That something? It might just be the end of the world. And if Janelle wants to stop it, she’s going to need to uncover Ben’s secrets – and keep from falling in love with him in the process…
Woah. That was just... Wow. Unravelling wasn't anything like I expected it to be! The plot was out of this world and the romance was incredible. This is one of the best books I've read this year.
The book is about a girl named Janelle who is hit by a car and dies. Well, she's pretty sure that she was dead before she opened her eyes and saw the school's stoner, Ben Michaels, leaning over her. On top of trying to gorge the truth of what happened out of him, Janelle also has to deal with her FBI father's case that she knows is somehow connected to Ben. She searches his office and finds a device that is counting down to something that is going to happen in 23 days and 10 hours time. Janelle and her best friend Alex have to try to stop the device, but she will need the help of Ben to tell her what he knows. Before they all die.
I can not criticize this book at all. The writing flowed effortlessly, the characters were entertaining and realistic, the suspense was incredible and the overall plot was well thought-out. There were some really funny moments between Janelle and Ben that were hilarious. Janelle was an awesome character to read about and I loved reading through her thoughts. Especially those occasional naughty thoughts of Ben. *Wink*
If Unravelling were to become a movie, I think it would be highly successful! There is drama, there is action, there is thriller, there is mystery and there is romance! What more could you want?
I would recommend Unravelling to all of you out there who simply love YA in one of it's best forms. When you finish I guarantee that you will be desperate for the sequel that I believe is called Unbreakable. Pick up this book as soon as you can!
