Mara Dyer doesn’t think life can get any stranger than waking up in a hospital with no memory of how she got there.
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.
So I’d been hearing about how fantastic this book was ever since it came out. So I’d been wanted to see what all the hubbub was about when I saw it in my library.
I normally don’t read fiction set in the 21 century. I also normally don’t read paranormal (although I’ve been getting more into it). So I was happy to find that this is indeed a good book.
For the most part the characters are good. Mara herself is particularly interesting but there’s the other characters that bugged me. Like the super hot chick who I can’t remember why she hated Mara, or one of Mara’s random new friends.
I think his name was Jamie but I didn’t understand his purpose. Especially since he just seemed to randomly disappear half way through the book. I didn’t like him. He was weird and annoying, plus he seemed like a little kid.
And I wasn’t thrilled with the love interest, Noah. Sure I liked him and I thought he was a good character, but there was something about him that I didn’t like.
The plot was really interesting. At first it was interesting seeing how this horrible accident happened and Mara can’t remember a thing. But then creepy things start happening and you’re not really sure what was going on. Towards the end, I started to get really confused about what exactly their “powers” were.
Overall I really liked this book and it had a fantastic ending. There’s some things that bug me- mostly character related, but I liked it and I recommend it.
