The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer blew me away. I would highly recommend this book to my fellow peers. Mara Dyer is the only who survived when her and her 3 friends were in the midst of the Aslyum collapsing. This book is about how she is handling her greif. She suffers PTSD. She meets a beautiful boy named Noah at her new school . Together they encounter many strange things.

When i first started reading the book I never thought it would turn out the way it did, but it was a really good book. The main character Mara Dyer she wakes up in the hospital not remembering what happened. Her parents fill her in saying that she was in an accident and her friend died and she didn't. [spoiler deleted]

Rating: 4  Better than most.

        Mara Dyer is unraveling. Ever since her two best friends and her boyfriend died in a horrible building collapse a few months ago, Mara has been seeing hallucinations, hearing voices, and having strange things happen to her whenever she is unaware. After moving to a town in Florida, Mara expects that the new atmosphere will let her live a normal life after their deaths, but things get even weirder. She believes there is much more to what happened to her friends than she knows, and discovers more mysteries along her way then she could have ever imagined. But more than anything, she didn't think that she could fall in love...but she can. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer was the best suspense novel I have ever read. It read like a thriller, each page leading you to the next. Paranormal romance blends with horror in this chillingly fast read. Michelle Hodkin's beautiful imagery makes for the perfect story set-I could just walls falling and voices slipping in behind me that weren't really there like it was a movie. Mara was a beautifully developed character, capable but troubled, which made her all the more interesting and realistic. The romance had a lot of chemistry and was a continual gathering of energy that was electrifying and sweet all at once. The book gathers speed through every page, and still doesn't end when it reaches the last. I am soo excited to read Hodkin's next book; every quality in this book leaves me practically begging for more. For readers who especially enjoyed Nova Ren Suma's Imaginary Girls, or any other paranormal/horror/suspense movie and book, you will love The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer-I mean it!

This book was very interesting, creepy at times, it still deserves to win a prize. I loved how unusual it was and that the suspension kept me hooked through most of it. The ending was probably my favorite part of the book; I was left so surprised!

Rating: 4 Better than most
