The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer (Mara Dyer #1) by Michelle Hodkin

Book Description

September 27, 2011
Mara Dyer believes life can’t get any stranger than waking up in a hospital with no memory of how she got there.
It can.

She believes there must be more to the accident she can’t remember that killed her friends and left her strangely unharmed.
There is.
She doesn’t believe that after everything she’s been through, she can fall in love.
She’s wrong.
Review –
I absolutely loved this book and gave it 4 1/2 stars. It was offered by PULSE -IT free to read for 24 hours so I read and read until it was finished and then I was ready for the next book.
It has it all suspense, young love,romance, a bit of humor and mystery.
Noah stole my heart right away.  He’s a “bad boy” and he falls for Mara, who is a good girl and he didn’t intend for it to happen, but he falls in love with her. She’s been through a horrible trauma and is trying to rebuild her life, but will she be able to?

Review –

This was offered free in audio and was just a little over an hour long. It was the first time I’ve heard of it and supposedly the movie,Frozen, is adapted from it.  I didn’t care for the story but I did like the movie.
