Sixteen-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, Jared.

And that was before she died… and is brought back to life by Ben Michaels, a mysterious, alluring loner from her high school. When she discovers a strange clock that seems to be counting down to the earth’s destruction, Janelle learns she has twenty-four days to figure out how to stop the clock and save the planet.

Unraveling is a mind twister. It is fast paced and is amazingly complex and completely understandable at the same time. The book defiantly kept me on the edge of my seat, and it was impossible to guess what was going to happen next!

I love Janelle. Honestly she is one of the most badass female characters out there. She doesn’t have any special skills or powers, but she is brave and selfless and willing to break the rules if it means keeping those she loves safe.

As for the romance in the book, I really like how it is written. This definitely is not one of those books where the romance takes over the whole plot. Instead, it feels natural and just right. And I love Ben. Definitely fictional BF material!

Another thing I love about Unraveling is how it kept me guessing. I did not see anything coming and my heart was shattered and pieced back together and then shattered again… and then the pieces were shattered. Talk about an emotional rollercoaster!

Unraveling is definitely one of my favorite books, and I recommend it to anyone who loves young adult, sci-fi, mystery, and paranormal books. It’s a good one, guys.

I am giving Unraveling five out of five hearts!
