Unbreakable Blog Tour: Meet Ben Michaels

 Hello Hello! Welcome to my stop in the blog tour of Unbreakable by Elizabeth Norris.
Today, I will introduce you to Ben, the heartbreaker book boyfriend of this awesome book!
He is the strong, loyal, and lovely boy that saved Janelle in Unraveling, and I know you will love him!


Unbreakable On-Sale Countdown: 6 days until on-sale!


Four months after Ben disappeared through the portal to his home universe, Janelle believes she’ll never see him again. Her world is still devastated, but life is finally starting to resume some kind of normalcy. Until Interverse Agent Taylor Barclay shows up. Somebody from an alternate universe is running a human trafficking ring, kidnapping people and selling them on different Earths—and Ben is the prime suspect. Now his family has been imprisoned and will be executed if Ben doesn’t turn himself over within five days.

And when Janelle learns that someone she cares about—someone from her own world—has become one of the missing, she knows that she has to help Barclay, regardless of the danger. Now Janelle has five days to track down the real culprit. Five days to locate the missing people before they’re lost forever. Five days to reunite with the boy who stole her heart. But as the clues begin to add up, Janelle realizes that she’s in way over her head—and that she may not have known Ben as well as she thought. Can she uncover the truth before everyone she cares about is killed?


Name: Ben Michaels

Age: 17

Distinguishing features: dark brown hair that’s a little wavy and flops into his face, eyes so dark they look black.

Worked as: a mechanic who restores old Motorcycles at Kon-tiki in Pacific Beach. Then he worked as a mechanic working on cars, and doing oil changes with his brother Derek in his home world. Now, no one knows where he is.

Parents: In Janelle’s home universe he lived in foster care, but his real mother is a scientist who works for the government, and his dad, a salesman, remarried after their divorce and now lives with his new family.

Family: His brother Derek is a mechanic living in their home universe.

Friends: His best friend is Elijah Palma, who can be a little prickly and anti-social when it comes to new people, but they both fell through the portal into a new world when they were 10 and seven years later after devoting all their energy to it, they’ve just gotten back home, only home isn’t what they thought it would be.

Sixteen-year-old Janelle Tenner is used to having a lot of responsibility. She balances working as a lifeguard in San Diego with an intense academic schedule. Janelle's mother is bipolar, and her dad is a workaholic FBI agent, which means Janelle also has to look out for her younger brother, Jared. And that was before she died...and is brought back to life by Ben Michaels, a mysterious, alluring loner from her high school. When she discovers a strange clock that seems to be counting down to the earth's destruction, Janelle learns she has twenty-four days to figure out how to stop the clock and save the planet.

Before the accident. Before their universes collided. Before they fell in love.
Riveting and romantic, Undone: An Unraveling Novella contains three short stories set in the world of Unraveling, the first book in the gripping sci-fi duology by Elizabeth Norris.
Before Ben Michaels saved Janelle Tenner’s life, Janelle saved Ben when he stumbled through an interuniverse portal into a completely new world. That day, he fell in love with the girl of his dreams. And he never forgot her.
Through three stories told from Ben’s point of view, learn how Ben and his friends discovered their ability to travel between worlds, how Ben first met Janelle, and how he pined for her for years before he actually got the chance to meet her, save her life, and capture her heart. And find out what happens to Ben between the cliff-hanger conclusion to Unraveling and the beginning of its heart-stopping sequel, Unbreakable.
