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.


This is one book I can say you either hate it, or you love it. I, for one, LOVED it.

This is going to be a short review, mainly because I don't want to spoil anything. Basically, Mara Dyer is suffering from PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) after her best friend, her boyfriend, and her boyfriend's sister die. She cannot remember a thing that's happen. All she knows is that, for some reason, she survived. Most of the story is her regaining her memory.

Mara is downright insane. That's really all I can say about her--insane. Some of the thoughts she has were just...crazy! She belonged in the looney-bin.

Then there is Noah, the love-interest. He is a bit of a butt, and has pretty much slept with the majority of the school. Throughout the book, I was unsure on whether or not to trust this guy. Until the very end, it seemed his only goal was to take Mara's innocence. 

The ending of this book leaves you on such a cliff-hanger, and the next book doesn't even come out until next year! How will I survive!?

  1. The characters are strong and I like how it isn't the two main characters that the story is revolved around but other characters are strong connected as well. This story is richer than other YA books and I can't wait to see how the next book comes out and how the story and characters are affected.
