Chase’s memory just went out the window.

Chase doesn’t remember falling off the roof. He doesn’t remember hitting his head. He doesn’t, in fact, remember anything. He wakes up in a hospital room and suddenly has to learn his whole life all over again—starting with his own name.

He knows he’s Chase. But who is Chase? When he gets back to school, he sees that different kids have very different reactions to his return.

Some kids treat him like a hero. Some kids are clearly afraid of him.

One girl in particular is so angry with him that she pours her frozen yogurt on his head the first chance she gets.

Pretty soon, it’s not only a question of who Chase is—it’s a question of who he was . . . and who he is going to be.

From the bestselling author of Swindle and Slacker, Restart is the spectacular story of a kid with a messy past who has to figure out what it means to get a clean start.

    " My two teenage boys and I listened to this book on a recent trip. They both liked it very much and couldn't wait to hear more of the story. I liked that each character had a different narrator. I would recommend this book for preteen/teenaged kids. We really liked it and it was perfect for our 7 hour trip. "
