The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer

by Michelle Hodkin
Release date: 2011
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: fantasy, young adult

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.

Surprisingly complex story but not too hard to follow, not predictable (mostly). Aimed at young adults but great read anyway. Very well written especially as is a first time author, doesn't lose its momentum or way as first authors are more likely to do. This one surprised me.
