My name is not Mara Dyer, but my lawyer told me I had to choose something. A pseudonym. A nom de plume, for all of us studying for the SATs. I know that having a fake name is strange, but trust me—it’s the most normal thing about my life right now. Even telling you this much probably isn’t smart. But without my big mouth, no one would know that a seventeen-year-old who likes Death Cab for Cutie was responsible for the murders. No one would know that somewhere out there is a B student with a body count. And it’s important that you know, so you’re not next.
This book leaves me speechless. It was incredible.
Mysterious and creepy throughout the whole book. Full of beautiful descriptions which are not overdone, which will leave you with chills.
The characters were amazing. Mara Dyer is an unstable and unreliable main character with snark. Then Noah Shaw starts out as your typical bad-boy/player who grows and develops into a lovable character.
Pick this book up. Now.
