The Unbecoming Of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

ISBN: 9780857073631
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Pages: 452

Mara Dyer doesn’t think life can get any stranger. She wakes from a coma in hospital with no memory of how she got there or of the bizarre accident that caused the deaths of her best friends and her boyfriend, yet left her mysteriously unharmed. The doctors suggest that starting over in a new city, a new school, would be good for her and just to let the memories gradually come back on their own.

But Mara’s new start is anything but comforting. She sees the faces of her dead friends everywhere, and when she suddenly begins to see other people’s deaths right before they happen, Mara wonders whether she’s going crazy! And if dealing with all this wasn’t enough, Noah Shaw, the most beautiful boy she has ever seen can’t seem to leave her alone… but as her life unravels around her, Mara can’t help but wonder if Noah has another agenda altogether…

I really enjoyed reading The Unbecoming Of Mara Dyer, it was a mixture of Ultraviolet by R.J. Anderson, Entangled by Cat Clarke and the Darkest Powers series by Kelley Armstrong! I enjoyed reading the flashbacks, I think they were well thought out, and written in, just in the right place! One of my favourite parts of The Unbecoming Of Mara Dyer was learning more about the accident with Mara, as she herself discovered it. My favourite character was Mara, as despite being told to move on and gradually let the memories come back with time, Mara can’t. She feels guilty that she was the only one to survive so, regardless of the possible consequences, she tries to unearth her memories of that night. I like the cover of The Unbecoming Of Mara Dyer, however for me it’s too abstract. I feel it could have fitted in with the actual story within more than it does.
