Mara Dyer doesn’t think life can get any stranger than waking up in a hospital with no memory of how she got there.
She believes there must be more to the accident she can’t remember that killed her friends and left her mysteriously unharmed.
She doesn’t believe that after everything she’s been through, she can fall in love.
I wish I would have reviewed this one while it was fresh in my mind!
I'm a sucker for amnesia type storylines. Mara wakes up in a hospital, unable to remember what happened to her best friend, boyfriend, and boyfriend's sister. As the book progresses, she remembers more and more of the night that put her in the hospital and killed her three friends.
As a way to help their daughter cope, Mara's parents move her and her two brothers to Miami to start anew. Mara makes friends with this really awesome, dorky guy named Jamie. And the love interest is a bad boy, Noah. I really liked Noah. I really liked Jamie.
The story was good. I loved the cliffhanger. It's definitely one of those 'Oh S&!#' moments.
