Publisher's Summary

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.

What the Critics Say

"Narrator Christy Romano captures the youthful voice of the 17-year- old main character. Mara's sass, worries, and romantic longing all come alive, thanks to Romano's performance." (AudioFile)

Strange, and not really in a good way

What a strange book this is. Many friends have raved about it but I'm afraid I'm not a fan.

Between not being able to find much to like or admire in the heroine, the weird smoker hero, the largely improbable plot points and character reactions (even within the suspended reality of the book's own universe) and some truly bizarre moments (obscene versions of the Velveteen Rabbit, Dr Seuss and Curious George, anyone?), it just didn't do it for me.

My reaction may have been colored by the narrator - bad British accent, rapid fire delivery, and a flip, offhand, casual tone/expression that makes some of the more (melo?) dramatic lines sound so wrong, and makes the protagonist more irritating than engaging.

I suggest you read it, and make up your own mind.

Just Amazing!

This book is amazing! I loved this so much that I literally spoke about it everyday to my mum. I loved the characters, the setting, the action and the unexpected supernatural eliment, basically I LOVE IT ALL! This was an excellent start to what seems is going to be one of my favourite trilogy's. I know this has been really hyped up and that can be a deterrent but trust me if your on the fence just pick it up and give it a try you will love it. This is a wonderful book that I'm happy I picked up and cannot imagine my life without it or without Noah😀
