Young Adult Science Fiction
Reminiscent of Before I Fall, Elizabeth Norris's Unraveling
blends realistic coming-of-age issues and heart-stopping
romance with something just a little bit more. In this case,
a gripping science fiction world. Unraveling's heroine,
seventeen-year-old Janelle Tenner, is used to having a lot
of responsibility. She balances working as a lifeguard in
San Diego with an intense academic schedule. Janelle's
mother is bipolar, and her dad is a workaholic FBI agent,
which means Janelle also has to look out for her younger
brother. And that was before she died...and is brought back
to life by Ben Michaels, a mysterious, alluring loner from
her high school. The more Janelle tries to figure him out,
the more she starts to believe he's connected to a case her
father is working on. The one where people are dying of
radiation poisoning and the body count is rising. The one
that involves a strange clock that seems to be counting down
to the earth's destruction. If Janelle wants to stop the
clock and save the world, she has twenty-four days to
uncover Ben's secrets--and keep from falling in love with
him. 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.
