Restart is another one of Gordon Korman’s books that I enjoyed reading. As I see it, in his story, he tells of people’s ability to change and the dangers of not thinking for oneself. The protagonist, Chase, was able to get a fresh start on his life, one that benefited him and everyone else. He left those who said they were his friends and “had his back” to discover who his real friends were and what it meant to be a true friend.
This is an excellent read for young people who don’t realize that if your friends don’t make you a better person, than they’re not the friends you might think they are or want to be with.
