The heroine of this book Mara Dyer wakes up in the hospital to find that her friends are dead after a break in at an old mental hospital. After a while she realizes that she might be the one who murdered them. She moves to another town with her family and even weirder things starts to happen. She falls in love, more strange deads occurs around her and life as she knows it is not the same.
There are some Twilight resemblances in brooding girl falls for handsome cool super wealthy guy and of course I like it. There are no witches, vampires and such but still something is happening and we don’t know why.
I read this book in a couple of hours and just ordered the second part of this trilogy.
Some other words about the book by authors that I really liked their books:
“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
