The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

Summary: 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.

Review: The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer is yet another book I'm kicking myself for not reading sooner. I liked Mara a good bit. Her sense of humor and attitude reminded me of myself. It was literally like reading myself as a character in a book. Mara is the closest I've come to that. It was actually a bit creepy. I don't know how I feel about Noah. He's a decent character for the most part. He isn't my kind of man though. He still seems to be a bit of a player and that's a turn off for me, and he smokes. Ewwwwwwwwwww. Other than that, he's a pretty solid guy. Daniel and Joseph were cute characters. I can't wait to see more if them in future books. Favorite character? Probably Daniel/Joseph. I guess my only complaint about the story is that it read like a very creepy contemporary, but it isn't. That threw me, but the story was still engaging and I highly enjoyed it.
