The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer
Michelle Hodkin

Which requires a new school, a new life, a new boy, and unlocking her powers that killed her best friend.
Genre, Mood, Setting
The Genre of this story is fantasy and romance.

My mood while reading this is shocked and mystified.

The setting of this story is Miami, Florida. Present day.
Michelle Hodkin
Michelle grew up in South Florida, went to college in New York, and attended law school in Michigan. When she's not writing, She can usually be found prying strange objects from the jaws of one of her three pets. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer was her first novel. Published when she was twenty-nine.

Protagonists:
Mara Dyer (Round character)

Joseph Dyer- (Static) Mara's brother

Antagonist:
Mara Dyer

Jude- Ex-boyfriend
The tone of this book is dark and mysterious.
The rising action would be when Mara goes with Noah to save her brother after Noah has a vision of him being kidnapped.
Climax
The climax of this story would be when Mara finds out that saving her brother was not a hallucination and that she can kill anyone(thing) with her mind.

The falling action is when Mara and Noah tried to convict the man who had kidnapped her brother. Mr. Lassiter is already on trial for the killing of another child.
Conflicts
1. Mara meets Noah and is destined to treat him like the jerk he "is." (E)
2. Mara is suffering insanity and hallucinations (I)
3. Joseph gets kidnapped. (E)
4. Mara can kill people with her mind (E/I)
Dislike/Like
I liked plot twists in this book and the amount of drama. I like the characters and the mystery.

I didn't like the amount I had to reread chapters in order to understand whether it was her hallucinatory mind or her reality.
Recommendations
I would recommend this to anyone who likes mystery, cliche romance, and powers beyond humans.

I would not recommend to anyone who doesn't like focusing on novels, or mass murder. Anyone who doesn't enjoy cliche and anyone who can't stomach animal abuse, although is is a small section.
