Review

"A strong, inventive tale."

--"Kirkus Reviews", August 1, 2011

"Haunting and dreamlike, the intrigue and romance of Mara Dyer will inescapably draw you in." --Cassandra Clare, author of the "New York Times" bestselling Moral Instruments series

""The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer" strikes a rare balance of darkly funny, deliciously creepy and genuinely thoughtful. One minute I was laughing out loud, and the next, I was so scared I wanted to turn on all the lights and hide under the covers. Michelle Hodkin's talent and range are obvious, from her chilling descriptions to romantic scenes that almost crackled on the page. I've never read anything quite like it."--Veronica Roth, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Divergent

"

"A clever, captivating thriller, "The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer" is perfect for those (like me) who like their heroes dark, their heroines dangerous, and their romances "seriously" twisted."

--Kirsten Miller, "New York Times" bestselling author of "The Eternal Ones"

Hodkin, Michelle. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer. Simon & Schuster, 2011. 464p. $16.99. 978-1-4424-2176-9.

After Mara Dyer's best friend dies, she begins to go through episodes of posttraumatic stress disorder. She cannot remember the accident, or was it an accident? Mara only knows that of the four people who went that night to the abandoned asylum, she was the only survivor. Mara gets a new start in Florida, where she meets sexy Noah, who is known for being a player. Mara tries to ignore Noah at first but easily becomes entwined in his charms. Hallucinations and nightmares are a regular part of her life that she tries to keep hidden, especially from Noah. After an incident with her younger brother, Mara finds out that Noah has powerful secrets of his own.

Hodkin's debut is witty and thought-provoking and will have readers captivated until the very end. It takes readers through constant chaos, wonder, and bewilderment. The story can almost be compared to Justine Larbalestier's Liar (Bloomsbury, 2009/VOYA December 2009), only Mara is not aware of the clouded deceits of her experiences. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer will satisfy mystery lovers, dark fantasy seekers, horror believers, and readers who have a knack for romance.

"A strong, inventive tale."

--"Kirkus Reviews", August 1, 2011

Hodkin's debut is witty and thought-provoking and will have readers captivated until the very end. It takes readers through constant chaos, wonder, and bewilderment..."The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer" will satisfy mystery lovers, dark fantasy seekers, horror believers, and readers who have a knack for romance.

VOYA, October 2011

There are echoes of Stephen King's classic Carrie in this young-adult series kickoff...Written from Mara's perspective, "The Unbecoming" deftly melds alternate realities. Hodkin's transitions from the mundane to hallucinated horror are unexpected, seamless and creepy, packing the same sort of cinematic punch as scenes from "The Blair Witch Project"....Discerning the truth is just part of the pleasure of reading the delightfully bent reality in "The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer".

--"Los Angeles Times

"

"First-time author Hodkin has paired a steamy romance with a paranormal mystery that will cause teen readers whiplash as they jerk from one plot twist to another."

--"Booklist"

"Anyone who thinks old-fashioned romantic scenes can't move teens today will be proven wrong here. This boy will make readers swoon. The characters are real and wonderful, and the supernatural story is riveting. Expect this book to fly off the shelves."

--"SLJ"
