Literature / Unraveling

Unraveling is a Young Adult novel by Elizabeth Norris.

Two days before the start of her junior year, 17-year-old Janelle Tenner is hit by a pickup truck and killed. Except the next thing she knows, she's opening her eyes to find Ben Michaels, a loner from her high school to whom Janelle has never talked, leaning over her. And even though it isn't possible, she knows 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 discovers that not only are Ben and his friends connected to the cases her father's investigating, a mysterious countdown clock places the end of the world at three weeks from now...

A sequel, Unbreakable, came out in 2013 to conclude the story.
