Teen Book Review: Unraveling

Unraveling by Elizabeth Norris

Review by Anna S., Sonoma Valley Branch

Unraveling by Elizabeth Norris is an exciting, high-suspense novel about the end of the world. Janelle Tenner has many problems in her life, whether it is her buried-in-work father, her mood-swing-prone mother, or the fact that she has to save the world from a mysterious count down. Janelle finds an unlikely ally in Ben Michaels and his two friends. Despite the huge puzzle that could result in the end of all life, Janelle still has trouble not falling for Ben.

I don’t usually like sci-fi novels, or end-of-the-world themes, but I did really like this book. I didn’t know what was going to happen next, and became pretty involved in the book. Janelle was a pretty likable character, and was always trying to help her family. I would recommend this book to pretty much anyone except for people that need an extremely happy ending. It did not have the fairy tale ending I was hoping for.
