Waiting on Wednesday #45: Unbreakable by Elizabeth Norris


Elizabeth Norris

Publication Date:
April 23, 2013

Balzer + Bray

Hardcover, 496 pages


Four months after Ben disappeared through the portal to his home universe, Janelle believes she’ll never see him again. Her world is still devastated, but life is finally starting to resume some kind of normalcy. Until Interverse Agent Taylor Barclay shows up. Somebody from an alternate universe is running a human trafficking ring, kidnapping people and selling them on different Earths—and Ben is the prime suspect. Now his family has been imprisoned and will be executed if Ben doesn’t turn himself over within five days.

And when Janelle learns that someone she cares about—someone from her own world—has become one of the missing, she knows that she has to help Barclay, regardless of the danger. Now Janelle has five days to track down the real culprit. Five days to locate the missing people before they’re lost forever. Five days to reunite with the boy who stole her heart. But as the clues begin to add up, Janelle realizes that she’s in way over her head—and that she may not have known Ben as well as she thought. Can she uncover the truth before everyone she cares about is killed?

About the author

Elizabeth Norris briefly taught high school English and history before trading the southern California beaches and sunshine for Manhattan’s recent snowpocalyptic winter.

She harbors dangerous addictions to guacamole, red velvet cupcakes, sushi, and Argo Tea, fortunately not all together.

Her first novel, UNRAVELING (Balzer+Bray, April 2012), is the story of one girl’s fight to save her family, her world, and the one boy she never saw coming.

There’s no surprise that this was going to appear on my WoW post. I loved Unraveling. The time traveling, the parallel universes, the romance, the action, the science fiction..LOVED it. I’m so glad they kept the covers the same too.

    I really want to read these books, and probably should’ve sooner. It’s bad, because I read the description and I’m interested, but these covers just look like awkward movie posters to me 😐

    The first one was so good, I’m surprised there wasn’t more buzz. Of course there never seems to be buzz for the ones I really enjoy. =b Can’t wait for this one!

    So, should I read Unraveling? xD I’m guessing the answer is yes. I have it on my wishlist, and I love the cover. Had no idea the second one already had a cover and a release date. Will be getting myself a copy for sure.

    I didn’t know that there’s a sequel of Unraveling so I was surprised when I saw the Unbreakable. I liked the first one and hopefully the sequel will be as good as the first or better.
