A San Diego teen gets hit by a car and killed. Then she is brought back to life and learns she has about three weeks to stop the world from being destroyed. Yes. I've hit the point in the academic year, when I can really only handle YA dystopias and novels about werewolves.
Janelle Tenner is a likable protagonist, smart and hardworking, who adores her FBI agent dad and younger brother and whose mother's bipolar disorder leaves Janelle with a lot of household crap to deal with in addition to her AP classes.
Shockingly, Unraveling, while a bit of a romance does not contain a love triangle. Other than that spot of originality, while it's a compelling book, it's not particularly sophisticated. For me, at this moment, that's part of its charm, and I've already started the sequel Unbreakable.
