Description

Mara Dyer doesn't know if she is crazy or haunted--all she knows is that everyone around her is dying in this suspenseful and "strong, inventive tale" (Kirkus Reviews). Mara Dyer doesn't think life can get any stranger than waking up in a hospital with no memory of how she got there. It can. She believes there must be more to the accident she can't remember that killed her friends and left her mysteriously unharmed. There is. She doesn't believe that after everything she's been through, she can fall in love. She's wrong. After Mara survives the traumatizing accident at the old asylum, it makes sense that she has issues. She lost her best friend, her boyfriend, and her boyfriend's sister, and as if that weren't enough to cope with, her family moves to a new state in order to give her a fresh start. But that fresh start is quickly filled with hallucinations--or are they premonitions?--and then corpses, and the boundary between reality and nightmare is wavering. At school, there's Noah, a devastatingly handsome charmer who seems determined to help Mara piece together what's real, what's imagined--and what's very, very dangerous. This fast-paced psychological--or is it paranormal?--thriller will leave you breathless for its sequel, The Evolution of Mara Dyer.show more

Review quote

"Haunting and dreamlike, the intrigue and romance of Mara Dyer will inescapably draw you in." --Cassandra Clare, author of the "New York Times" bestselling Moral Instruments series ""The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer" strikes a rare balance of darkly funny, deliciously creepy and genuinely thoughtful. One minute I was laughing out loud, and the next, I was so scared I wanted to turn on all the lights and hide under the covers. Michelle Hodkin's talent and range are obvious, from her chilling descriptions to romantic scenes that almost crackled on the page. I've never read anything quite like it."--Veronica Roth, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Divergent" "A clever, captivating thriller, "The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer" is perfect for those (like me) who like their heroes dark, their heroines dangerous, and their romances "seriously" twisted." --Kirsten Miller, "New York Times" bestselling author of "The Eternal Ones" "WOW.

Wow. I was absolutely blown away with this book. This paranormal romance was the perfect blend of suspense and wit. When I wasn't completely freaked out, I was laughing hysterically. The dialogue was killer! Hello, chemistry! Mara and Noah have such a witty but cute relationship. And Noah combines sweet, sexy, and adorable all in the best way possible. As for the "horror" part of the book, the hallucinations that Mara has are what I call: trippy. Half of the time, I didn't know what was real and what was just a figment of her imagination. At some point, it was actually very confusing. That was really the only downside to the book. I think, though, that it was meant to be that way. Overall, this is definitely one of my top favorite book series. This is one of those books that you stay up until 2A.M. to finish and then die a little waiting for the next book. I'm super excited to read the next one in the series, and I'm counting down the days for /The Retribution of Mara Dyer/.show more
