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, Janelle knows—with every fiber of her being—that Ben has somehow brought her back to life.
But her reincarnation, 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.

You know, I know I say things like this all the time, but seriously, THIS book so completely got me!! I was hocked! I couldn't put it down, I didn't want to go to work or sleep because I wanted to read so badly! ;)
The story is something I've never ever read about, and I read a lot. It's completely unique. And the main character Janelle is awesome! She is so strong and her will is admirable. She doesn't give up once, and she puts others always first. A really lovable character and I really connected with her!
Ben. Oh, the bad boy Ben. I like him. I like him a lot. Mysterious and somehow dangerous boy but underneath there is just a scared boy that feels lost and bears a lot of guilt in himself. But come on, there is nothing Janelle can't fix ;)
The writing was completely stunning! You should see how many bookmarks I have in this book. WOW. Really. The scenes were written perfectly. And the emotions too, you could practically feel how the characters felt in the book. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.
A BIG 5-stars for this book and if you haven't read it yet, I dare you, to do it ASAP! ;) It's worth it ;)
