The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

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.

  My Review 

Before the accident Mara Dyer was a normal girl, enjoying life with her friends, how would she know that all of that was about to turn around. Mara wakes up in a hospital having no recollection of what happened, but maybe it was better for her that way.  

There is a saying that 'curiosity killed the cat', in this book that saying is portrayed wonderfully. This in my thought was one of the best books I have ever read if not the best. Michelle Hodkin's writing is so realistic but unbelievable- literally- in a way, that you start to imagine the future of the book and think that it is all a dream. 

I don't really have many words for this book, because it is difficult to explain it without spoiling it. Overall I loved the book, and cannot wait to get my hands on the second book in the series.
