Mara Dyer doesn’t think life can 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 mysteriously unharmed.
There is.

She doesn’t believe that after everything she’s been through, she can fall in love.
She’s wrong. (Goodreads)
 I really enjoyed this book! 

It wasn't at all what I expected but it didn't disappoint. Mara is such an interesting character, I loved the fact that she was an unreliable narrator, I found that I was discovering plot twists with her and I felt like I was in her head. I'm not sure how I feel about Noah, I think I like him but I don't love him. I'm really interested to see where this story is going to go!

I'd recommend this book if you're looking for something a little different, something that will keep you on your toes and really make you think!
