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's going to be.

From the #1 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.

    Restart by: Gordan korman is awesome! the book is relatable and has a very engaging storyline. During reading the author provides enough description so you can navigate what is happening and has an awesome story. unlike other books, it takes turns sharing almost every character's perspective. The story is about a boy who falls off his roof and gets memory loss and his whole life changed.

      I honestly believe that restart deserves to be in some sort of newsletter. I enjoyed when chase finds out who he used to be it's stunning that he did those things.Chase really needs to be more careful if you know what I mean. The only bad thing about it is that in some places the words are jumbled in just confusing blobs because of how big the words are (long hard to say words). I honestly believe just how well written it was and I hope gordon korman keeps on writing.

            This book I finished just a few minutes ago and its AMAZING! It's about a boy called Chase who falls of his roof and gets Amnesia. He has forgotten every memory in the last 13 years and who he used to be. He gets one flashback of a girl with blonde hair and a blue dress. This book is written in many different perspectives and is very interesting

                      Restart is all about a boy named Chase Ambrose. At the beginning of the story Chase is saying "I remember falling. At least I think I do". Chase does not know what is happing all around him. Chase thinks he's dead. His mom an d dad rush him to the hospital. When Chase gets there he is scared cause he doesn't know what is happing. The doctors run tests on him to see if Chase will be ok. When the doctor comes back with the results from all the testing they did Chase's mom freaked out when she saw the results.
