Summary: 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.
Review: This book astounded me; it was similar to Torn, by Cat Clarke (see my review here), in the way of the protagonist's mental health - not knowing which hallucinations are real and which are fake - the wanting to confide in a boy, and the murder.
This book felt so real and terrifying to me, as (alongside the protagonist Mara) you don't have any idea if her hallucinations are real or not. There are bouts of time where she loses her memory, or has visions replace them, and this is very scary to experience.
The character of Noah Shaw is similar to that of Will in Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare (read my review), as he uses his lies and arrogance to hide his true thoughts and feelings - the only difference is that Noah actually opens up to Mara.
So in conclusion (I don't want to reveal too much of the plot), this was an extremely chilling book, and if you like horror or paranormal, it's a must-read. It truly unsettled me (very similar in that aspect to Unrest by Michelle Harrison, the review for which I will be posting soon). So... 4.7 stars (I've looked back at my review and I originally gave it 4.9, but it creeped me out a little too much for that!).
