Restart Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
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?

Not remembering anything, and not being able to play football right away due to the concussion, Chase decides to join a new club, and, in doing so, makes some new friends and discovers he's good at (and enjoys!) more than just football. He also learns about his past, and learns that maybe he wasn't the nicest person before.
This book does have some great points for discussion! Bullying seems to be becoming way more common in a lot of schools, but not only that, there are characters whose ideas are a bit surprising (queue dad.) Chase has to make some hard decisions regarding some mistakes he has made in the past, and also decide who he wants to be in the future.
Great job, Gordon Korman! Thankful to have books like this for our kids to read and to learn from.
With amnesia, you DO restart your life. Korman captures that so well - the confusion, the "why am I looking at someone I'm supposed to know but don't recognize them?" horror, and the "how do I reclaim a past I no longer remember - and may not even want?" feeling. This is excellent in the classroom, at home, and for anyone who wants to know how difficult life is with amnesia - but that it's possible to move on and live a better, more fulfilling life. Five stars, and then some, for not making this a sob story or a soap opera, but an actual, realistic portrayal about teenage life, bullying, friendships, and amnesia.
