Two days before the start of her junior year, seventeen-year-old Janelle Tenner is hit by a pickup truck and killed—as in blinding light, scenes of her life flashing before her, and then nothing. Except the next thing she knows, she's opening her eyes to find Ben Michaels, a loner from her high school whom Janelle has never talked to, leaning over her. And even though it isn't possible, she knows—with every fiber of her being—that Ben has somehow brought her back to life.

But her revival, and Ben's possible role in it, is only the first of the puzzles that Janelle must solve. While snooping in her FBI agent father's files for clues about her accident, she uncovers a clock that seems to be counting down to something—but to what? And when someone close to Janelle is killed, she can no longer deny what's right in front of her: Everything that's happened—the accident, the murder, the countdown clock, Ben's sudden appearance in her life—points to the end of life as she knows it. And as the clock ticks down, she realizes that if she wants to put a stop to the end of the world, she's going to need to uncover Ben's secrets—and keep from falling in love with him in the process.
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.

*sigh of relief* a book full of awesomesauce. So happy I read this, despite it's terrible cover. I loved his book to the core! Janelle is a great character that you should be happy to get into the mind of. She is strong and level headed. Plus, she is total BA with how she handles herself. Her father is a part of the FBI and she often reads his case files. Well, after she gets hit by a truck, and should have died but was brought back to life by Ben, she get's interested in her own case, and the radiation deaths of many John Doe's that seem to be related. 

Janelle is smart and determined. She will uncover the truth, just like her dad. While dealing with her bipolar mother and taking care of her younger brother at the same time. Her best friend Alex is so sweet and charming and none of the typical best friends fall in love or disgusting love triangles plague this story. Alex is her friend and she loves him as he loves her, but it never stretches beyond friendship. 

Many surprises and turns, a lot of unfortunate deaths and catastrophes bring this story to a much anticipated climax. Ben and Janelle's love is not lost, but they make decisions that are important for themselves and not driven by lust ridden teenagers. I recommend you read this book! It was so much fun and I think you will love it!

Oh, yes. I wish there were more to give, because they get all the stars in the sky!
