Review: Restart

Chase is the star of the middle school football team, and he seems to have it all. Popularity, cool friends, and he basically rules the school. That is, until he falls off his roof and ends up with amnesia.

He forgets everything about his life and who he is as a person. As he tries to get back into a groove at school, he finds out some things about himself that shocks him… sure, the football team worships him, but rest of the student body fears him. He and his two best friends even drove the school’s music prodigy out of town.

To put it simply, Chase is the worst bully in town.

As Chase tries to regain memories of his past-self, he comes to discover that he doesn’t like the person he was. Though as memories come back, he fears that he’ll once again become that person, so the question he’s left with is, can he really change for the better?

This was an excellent book to read and it’s honestly great for all ages. It shows us that there can be second chances in life and that sometimes the people we choose to hang around with can really help shape us into the people we are, but we obviously hold the responsibility to let outside forces affect us.

It’s told in multiple points-of-view of not only Chase, but the kids he’s bullied and his two best friends. You can see who Chase was and who he’s becoming from all sides, and I found myself rooting for him to make the better choices and show that he wasn’t the person he was before.

I highly recommend this one.
