And the winner is: Restart got the most votes out of my book shop mega sale pile and as promissed – here is the review. Before I forget, thanks for participating and helping me pick a book. It always means so much to me if you guys like what I do and give me some feedback.
Now let’s get started:
The main character in this book is Chase Ambrose. He falls off his roof and suffers a memory loss. When he wakes up in hospital he can’t remember who he was anymore. Everyone has their side of Chase. When he goes back to school kids react very differently to his return. For some he is a bully. To others, like Kimberly who is secretly in love with Chase, he is a whole different person. Whom to believe? Who was he before the accident and who will he become once his memory comes back?
How did I like the book?
I loved the book because people stood up for Chase. Also the moral of the story is to give everyone a second chance even the people who are bystanders and disruptors. People can change. Even real bullys. Don’t give up on them!
Who is that book for?
kids 8 years and older

Two month later Wilbur found a new home at her uncle’s farm.
