My last read of 2014 and it knocked it outta the park!
5 out of 5 stars – easily.
This is a Young Adult story about Mara Dyer in the aftermath of a tragedy where she is the surviver of a building collapse where three of her friends die, which include her best friend and boyfriend.
Mara’s mind is unraveling as she takes up in a new town and new school with her family. To see more of my review, click here:
My favorite quotes from the story:
“Fix me,” I commanded him. “This thing, what I’ve done – there’s something wrong with me, Noah. Fix it.” Noah’s expression broke my heart as he brushed my hair from my face, and skimmed the line of my neck. “I can’t”
“Why not?” I asked, my voice threatening to crack.
“Because,” he said, “You’re not broken.” ― Michelle Hodkin, The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer

“Did I just see you litter?’
‘I’m driving a hybrid. It cancels out.” ― Michelle Hodkin, The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer

“Asscrown,” I muttered under my breath as I headed to my next class. I wasn’t proud of swearing at a complete stranger, no. but he started it.
Noah matched my pace. “Don’t you mean ‘assclown’?” He looked amused.
“No,” I said, louder this time. “I mean asscrown. The crown on top of the asshat that covers the asshole of the assclown. The very zenith in the hierarchy of asses,” I said, as though I was reading from a dictionary of modern profanity.
“I guess you nailed me then.” ― Michelle Hodkin, The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer
