The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin Review

, 450 pages
Expected publication: September 27th 2011
by Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing
My Copy: ARC

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:

Michelle Hodkin, aren't you the genius...


The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer is WILD! The mystery, the suspense and the romance was written to perfection.

The Characters:

Based on the book description, Mara is suppose to be this very intriguing character right? Well at first I thought she can't possible fit the part but when everything came together, she was so absorbing. Her friend Jamie was great too, a classic. And Noah...ahh Noah, he was everything I found interesting in a guy. He had me from the start and he and Mara were the best pair with very likable personalities.

This was a great story and so I have to rave about the writing. It wasn't typical. I smiled whenever I read a scene that avoided the cliches.

The story:

One of the best YA book I've read this year. I couldn't get enough of the mystery(Even though it did get a bit draggy at times). But Every event was quality. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer was everything I loved and hoped for so yes, another victory!
