This was an amazing book, I was enjoying so much that I read it in one sitting. I really like the perspective and how Chase gets a second chance to make life right.

This book was so intriguing and unique. The main character doesn't remember the person he once was, and, as he tries to re-discover his past life, he starts to wonder if that person is the kind of person he would like to be. Throughout the book, I was really invested in the main character, and rooting for him to make good decisions.

The perspective of this book was fascinating. The idea of getting a second chance, to be a better you and to right some wrongs is an appealing one. However, sometimes you have to accept that some wrongs can't be made completely right, but you can move forward and prove that you've changed. This book depicts what real friendship is, forgiveness, acceptance, and how hard it can be to do the right things sometimes. Even when we do mess up, we don't have to stay in that mess. We can learn from it and make a different, better choice next time.

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.
