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.
She doesn’t believe that after everything she’s been through, she can fall in love.
Oh my gosh, why did I wait so long to read The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer? Seriously, it was so good!
This book starts with Mara in the hospital with no memory of what has just recently happened to her. She finds out that her best friend and two other friends died in the collapse of a building and she was the only one who survived.
I think one of the main reasons I didn’t pick this book up until recently is because I get scared really easily and the storyline definitely sounded really creepy. It was creepy, but I didn't mind too much and it definitely kept me on the edge of my seat.
I especially admired Mara. Ever since her friends had died, she had been having all these vivid hallucinations and flashbacks to her past, all while trying to prove to everyone close to her that she's okay. It would be so terrible to go through an event like that and have no recollection of it.
Through the course of the story, Mara discovers more about her past and certain chapters are flashbacks to it. There are a bunch of things revealed about her past and what the true cause of the accident was. It was pretty surprising to me, although I came to suspect it towards the end of the book. I thought it was a great twist to the story, and definitely complicated things for the characters.
The love interest, Noah, was so incredibly amazing. Even after knowing Mara’s past, he still really cared for her and helped her when she needed it. I loved every scene that was written with him in it and looked forward to them. Mara also had such a loving, great family.
Overall, The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer is such an incredible book! I can not say enough good things about it. If you are one of the people who hasn’t read it yet, like I was, I’d read it right away, I’ve already read the awesome sequel to it ;) I’d give it 5 out of 5 flowers.
