Mara Dyer might be crazy. What else could explain how she ended up in the hospital with no memory of the horrific accident that claimed the lives of her three friends? Or the bizarrely realistic hallucinations and dreams that she has been suffering from ever since?
To get away from the scene of her trauma, Mara and her family relocate to Florida to start over and rebuild their lives. Life at her new school is okay to begin with, especially since Mara is able to make some friends and capture the attentions of drool-worthy crush Noah, but she soon learns that you can’t always leave your past behind.
This becomes especially apparent when the nightmares begin, followed closely by a series of frightening events involving dead bodies and break-ins and a very unwelcome visitor from her past. Mara unravels—she has no idea what to believe any more. Worst of all: she is beginning to remember what really happened to her the night of the accident.
What happened to Mara Dyer? And how can she come to terms with it once she finds out the terrible secrets that her mind has locked away?
Michelle Hodkin’s debut novel is completely gripping and will leave mature readers staying up late into the night to finish it. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer is a book that will grab you by the throat and refuse to let go. Fans of paranormal romance, suspense, and psychological thrillers will be thrilled. 978-1442421776 480 pages Ages 14 and up
