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.

Extremely great book with pacing, description, and each character has an amazing relatable part, and you completely understand them in every chapter they narrate. I would recommend this to anyone, even the people who don't like to read should likely be able to read this book.

I really enjoyed this book, there was even a point in the story that I started to cry.

This book is another very good book by Gordon Korman that centers around bullying and the ability to control how you act. It shows you that just because you were one person in the past that you don't have to be the same in the present, that you can change. This book has a great storyline and I think that a lot of people would enjoy it.

Restart brings you face to face with the idea of putting some serious thought into what kind of person you want to be. It shows you that in the eyes of those around you, your behavior represents the real you and that thankfully, the power to become someone different by behaving differently and is within your own control.

Good book about a star football player that has fallen off his roof, now has amnesia and has to relearn everything about his life. He doesn't like what he starts to unravel about who he was and how he treated people. An enjoyable read about the possibility of starting over when you have the chance.

I have a thing for memory loss stories, and this one is an excellent contribution. The main character is not only having zany adventures like Gordon Korman has always written, but is dealing with the real repercussions - both physical and emotional - of his actions before and after his accident. I loved reading this book!

I loved the different perspectives and the suspense. An amazing book.

What a great premise - and well executed. Just when you think you should have sympathy for the main character, you find out that not everyone in the story will feel the same. I also love the idea of being able to have a "re-do" in your life - that your choices can decide your future. Well recommended.

Chase Ambrose wakes up in the hospital after falling off his roof. He doesn’t remember falling off the roof or anything else, he has amnesia. Chase learns facts about his past from others, he played football and was the team captain. He also learns that maybe he wasn’t a very nice person. He figures this out when he discovers that he had been sentenced to community service by the juvenile court system to perform service hours at a senior citizens’ home. Another indication about his character is how other students react to him when he walks down the halls at school. As Chase discovers more about his former self, he doesn’t like what he learns. He tries to reinvent himself but it is a difficult process because everyone is waiting for the old Chase to return.
