Unraveling was fantastic; it was one of best fantasy, mystery books I read this year. This novel was filled with a lot of action, mystery and I found myself anything about this book that I disliked. I felt myself getting drawn to the characters, mostly Janelle, Ben & Alex and each page, each sentence is what kept me on reading, I wanted to see what’s going to happen next, I needed to know. I always enjoyed mystery novels and Unraveling had a lot of mystery and found myself wondering same things that Janelle was while trying to solve it. Elizabeth Norris’s debut was addicting, entertaining read and I would highly recommend reading it.
Girl’s fight to save herself, her world, and the boy she never saw coming.
Two days before the beginning of junior year, Janelle Tenner is hit by pickup truck while on her way from work and is killed. Moments later, she feels her life flashing before her and then sees nothing. When she wakes up, she sees Ben Michaels, a stoner kid from her school kneeling in front of her, and even though she knows it’s not possible, she knows that he was the one who had healed her. Soon Janelle finds out that is least of her worries.
Norris’s writing style was unique, I thought that it was original fact how each chapter was written by how many days. At first I wasn’t sure what those numbers meant, I thought it was hours but I wasn’t sure hours to what, till I read more of the novel and then I understood. I haven’t seen any writing style before and at each day, I felt anxious myself because I wasn’t sure if it was something that Janelle would be able to stop. I was praying for her to succeed. I think if it wasn’t for others helping her, Ben, Alex she wouldn’t be able to do it, she wouldn’t be able to solve the mystery of her father’s murder.
