“This debut features Janelle Tenner, a popular 16-year-old, who carries big responsibilities on her young shoulders. With her FBI-agent dad's grueling work load and her mother's bipolar disorder, Janelle must care for her younger brother and balance her own rigorous academic schedule and lifeguard job. When she survives a freak accident involving a runaway pickup truck, she knows this is no ordinary miracle. For starters, she's sure she actually died, that her slacker classmate, Ben Michaels, brought her back to life, and that her dad is desperately racing to solve a case involving a terrorist time-bomb threat, with an impact that could shake up life on the planet itself!”
-- F. Josephine Arrowood, The Cottage Book Shop, Glen Arbor, MI


Description
Two days before her junior year, Janelle Tenner is hit by a pickup truck and killedNas in blinding light, her life flashing before her, then nothing. Except the next thing she knows, she's opening her eyes to find Ben Michaels, a loner from her high school, leaning over her.
