Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Gordon Korman harkens back to his No More Dead Dogs days in this stand-alone that takes a tone more serious than you've ever heard from him before.

A boy who's been a bully and hanging out with the wrong friends gets a new start after a memory-loss-inducing accident. But can someone really change who he is, or will the old him merely come back over time?

Great story for kids

Amazing book

This book was addictive to listen to! We listened to it on a road trip and it was a great book for my 9 year old and 13 year old to listen to. It made the drive so fast and the story has a great story line. I highly recommend this book.

Great story, great narration, thoroughly enjoyed!

This is a great story for middle-schoolers on up to adults. It is about second chances and making choices, bullying and peer pressure and even parenting. Very enjoyable listen, loved all the different voices and characters.

We could all use a Restart

My sons English teacher is reading this to his 7th grade class. In an effort to know what he’s learning and maybe learn a few things myself I decided to listen. This book is a story of redemption, being there for your friends and finding out who your real friends are. Great read for kids and parents.

So fun!

I am an adult, and occasionally I read a book for young adults or kids. I am usually disappointed, but not this time. This book grabbed me from the start, and I loved it right to the end. Yes, this would be a great book for a young reader, age 10-14, but I was riveted. It's a very fun, feel-good novel. It's about a bully who loses his memory and seems to become a different person. I found myself caring a lot about the characters, and rooting for the main character, Chase, to turn his life around. I think that almost any kid would love this book, and adults with some kid in them (like me, I guess) would too.

Inspiring book

My kids loved this story of truth, reconciliation. We listened to this story on a road trip and it sparked plenty of healthy conversation between my 7, 11 and 13 year old. Would be great for a book study at school.

Ehhhh

I might be a little bias towards the main topic in this story, amnesia, since I actually have it, so that may have skews my opinion of it. The story was okay, but most of the medical and legal aspects of it were poorly done. The problem with the medical side is that if you hit your head hard enough to get amnesia, that isn’t going to be your only problem. You’re looking at a lifetime of problems, if you’re lucky enough to live past the first five years. So if realism isn’t something you care about, it’s a fine book. But if your looking for even a somewhat accurate portrayal of someone with TBI-induced amnesia, as I was, this isn’t the book for you

Funny and Inspiring

Gordon Korman has written a number of excellent children’s books, but this is likely my favorite so far. The story is compelling, the characters come to feel like people you know. This audio version is very well-done. Easily a 5-Star selection in my opinion!
