Unbreakable, by Elizabeth Norris, is the fast-paced follow-up to Unraveling. Janelle has teamed up with Interverse Agent Taylor Barclay to find the mastermind responsible for a human trafficking ring. Someone in an alternate universe is kidnapping people and selling them on different Earths. Everyone blames Ben, the boy who once saved Janelle’s life—and stole her heart.
Janelle can’t believe Ben could be behind such a thing. But when one of her best friends goes missing, she knows she must find the real criminal. Janelle and Agent Barclay have just five days to solve the crime and save Ben’s life.
