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.

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer is Michelle Hodkin debut. This books is a psycological thriller with a little bit of paranormal, with enough suspense and spooky moments. This story had me guessing at all times and sice I read the introduction I was hooked and couldn´t stop reading it until I finish.

I don´t want to tell too much about the story, because this books is one that should be read without spoilers, because otherwise is not going to have the same impact. The main character Mara Dyer is a 16 years old girl who has an accident that killed her friends and she result unharmed and she can´t remember nothing of that night. She is really affected because of this event.

I really like a lot this book, is really good and has a cliffhanger ending that leave me wanting to know what was next. And look at the cover is gorgeous, I love underwater pictures. I recommend this book so buy it or borrow it, is really amazing.

Book Trailer

I love this book trailer!


"My name is no Mara Dyer, but my lawyer told me that I had to choose something. A a pseudonym. A nom de plume, for all of us studying for the SAT´s. I know that having a fake name es strange, but trust me - it´s the most normal thing about my life now.
