The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer

Summary from Goodreads:
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.
What a creepy, passionate, and relentless book! I was sucked in by the creepy mystery behind Mara Dyer's accident and the strange appearances her dead friends are making in her life. In one minute I felt as though I knew everything that was going on, and in the next I was totally confused again- it was fantastic!
I loved the relationship between Noah and Mara. I really expected Noah to be something that he wasn't, and was pleasantly surprised to see this book wasn't following the "YA formula" that I expected. This book was fresh, orginal, and left me completely baffled.
I know that this book has been compared to Hush Hush... and other than the fact that they are both Paranormal YA books- I am not entirely sure why. The things that make them similar- a romance, some paranormal creepy stuff going on, and a very confused heroine- are not specific to that series. Besides, this book was ten times creepier than Hush Hush! (And I love that series!) They simply can't be compared- other than superficially, they aren't similar.
I think I got on a tangent there, ha ha. To bring it back in- you need to read this book. Buy it, get an ebook, borrow it, check it out from the library- but make sure you read this book.
I foresee it becoming big- VERY big.
