Restart is a very wholesome book, showing character development in ways that seemed impossible. This book features a lot of Middle School Drama, and it is written in such a form that it is enjoyable for anyone to read.
This book put me on an edge the whole time, because it was like the main character, Chase Ambrose, was a baby learning stuff for the first time! Chase is a very likable person, showing traits such as empathy and creativity, and he stands up for his fellow video club members from two of his “best friends” before he got amnesia.
The book is wrapped up in a very efficient way, smoothing the character development as it changes a bit in every page. The author did a very good job of showing how even the crankiest people can be real teddy bears on the inside.
I think this book is an excellent choice for readers who enjoy drama, as I used to think I dislike drama, but now it’s my favorite genre. It shows people confronting their fears, and even people who seem hopeless can bring a punch of courage. It shows that no matter what happens, there is still good in the world, and anyone, even people with the worst reputation, can become very likable and trustworthy friends.
