Praise for The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer: Haunting and dreamlike, the
intrigue and romance of Mara Dyer will inescapably draw you in.
--Cassandra Clare, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The
Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices 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, #1 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
WOW. Michelle Hodkin's debut will keep you guessing until the last page--and long after.
--Beth Revis, New York Times bestselling author of Across the Unviverse As spooky and twisty as it is lyrical and beautiful, The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer grabbed me and wouldn't let go. Read this one with the lights on.
--Rachel Hawkins, New York Times bestselling author of Demonglass
Reviews of The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer:
There are echoes of Stephen King's classic Carrie in this young-adult series kickoff...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 It's the story of a girl trying to piece together what happened the night she, her best friend, her boyfriend and his sister spent the night in an abandoned asylum and only she survived, unscathed but traumatized...And it's the story of a girl falling in love...Be careful, 'cause you'll fall right along with her.
--MTV's Hollywood Crush 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 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.
--School Library Journal Creepy, haunting, addictive and surprisingly romantic, Mara's story is beautiful and complex...Hodkin has elevated the teenage paranormal romance into something completely her own.
--Romantic 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 A strong, inventive tale.
Just as in the first book of the series (The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, 2011), this will have readers doubting Mara's sanity, trusting the mental health professionals, and suspicious of Noah's intentions. Readers will eagerly await the concluding title.--Booklist
