Teaser Tuesday: Unravelling by Elizabeth Norris

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
To play along just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Unravelling by Elizabeth Norris.

Unravelling -
Harper Collins Children's Books

I wonder how long I was dead. Because I know with absolute certainty that I was. Dead.
-- 23:23:56:40

“No, ma’am,” I say, looking down to avoid her eyes—and I’d be embarrassed about that except Annabeth Trechter is the only woman who scares my dad. And she likes him.
-- 16:19:58:49

I've just started Unravelling (or Unraveling, if you want the American version - I liked the British cover better)  and it gripped me immediately. Janelle, the main character, is not only brought back from the dead, but there’s also a clock ticking down towards the end of the world and Janelle has to find a way to stop it. The chapter titles actually show the counting clock, which aditionally keeps up the suspense.
So far I like Janelle, who is clever and definitely not a damsel in distress. But I’m fonder of the dark, brooding Ben and hope he gets more page time as the novel progresses. I’m all for dark and dangerous guys!

Suspense or romance, mystery or zombie? What are you reading this Tuesday?

The whole dead back to life thing is definitely an intriguing idea. Bet she came back with lots of wisdom. Here's Mine
