The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer
by Michelle Hodkin has everything. Has mystery and suspense, has supernatural and a love story.
Mara, the main character is fully developed with all a teenager has and more. The “more” part is where her character become interesting and trilling. She looks damaged and deranged as she fights her own fears, fears that are not normal at all for a teenager. Moving into a new town, at a new fancy school, she tries to leave behind her old life, but her fears follow her.
At her new school, she meets Noah Shaw an arrogant boy with a reputation to maintain. However, all of this is a façade. A love story starts to contour between them and Mara gain the courage to speak with him about what is happening to her, her distress. With the help of Noah, she soon realizes what it is, but even that seems unbelievable for her.
The plot is full of twists and turns that keeps the reader glue to the story.
I really enjoy the story and I can wait to read the sequel.
