Review: The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer - Michelle Hodkin

Looking for a new supernatural teen book to read ? One that will have you flipping the pages and when you have finished , wanting more from the author?
Review: The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer - Book #1 Mara Dyer Series - Michelle Hodkin - September 2011
When you read as much as I do , its always a bit touch and go with books as most of them have the same sort of storyline and it really all comes down to how the author executes the storyline and how they can write it , to whether or not the book will be great or not. This storyline is one that has been done a couple of times in different ways but I have to say I adored this book and loved it and cannot wait to read the next one :)
In "The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer" we meet Mara whom we discover was in an accident the previous school year which caused the deaths of three of her friends including her best friend Rachel, boyfriend Jude and friend Claire.  Somehow Mara came out of the accident unharmed, is it a miracle or is there a reason why Mara wasn't killed ?
We soon read that Mara has moved schools and is slowly starting to remember what happened that fateful day but in doing so Mara also now has the ability and power to imagine people's death and by imagining the deaths, she can cause them. In learning this, we read as Mara starts to wonder if she in fact caused the deaths of her friends ? With the help of newfound friend and soon to be boyfriend Noah can Mara learn to control her gift and remember what really happened that fateful night ?
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer is told in two POVs - a Before the Incident and After the Incident and is definitely a book that everyone must read or at least have sitting near the top of their TBR piles.
