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.
She's wrong. [summary from Goodreads]
Okay, so that summary doesn't tell you very much, maybe, but here: read the first chapter and then come back and tell me whether or not your interest is piqued. Because mine is!!! There is something very hypnotic and creepy about Michelle's no-frills narration. I love it. I want more.
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer will be published in hardcover from Simon & Schuster on September 27, 2011.
In the meantime, you can go follow Michelle on Twitter at @MichelleHodkin!
