She used to think her problems were all in her head.
She couldn’t imagine that after everything she’s been through, the boy she loves would still be keeping secrets.
In this gripping sequel to The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, the truth evolves and choices prove deadly. What will become of Mara Dyer next?
I was afraid that The Evolution of Mara Dyer would be disappointing like some of the other sequels released in 2012; Insurgent by Veronica Roth, for example. But it wasn't! Thank God! Michelle Hodkin writes brilliantly and I was completely and utterly absorbed from the first chapter. There was just as much romance, humor as there was in the first book, and even more action and mysteries! I could not put this book down at all, because I was desperate to find out how it ended.
Mara is a great protagonist who I really love to read about. She's caring and courageous when she's forced to be and I wouldn't mind knowing her in real life. At times, I felt extremely frustrated with her, the world, EVERYTHING! When Mara was trying to tell everyone that she wasn't crazy, no one believed her. I can understand how irritating and annoying that must be if I were in her shoes. I would have probably broken down crying with angry tears as well. Let's thank all things holy that Mara had and will - hopefully - always have the amazing Noah Shaw by her side.
Yes, this is the Noah Shaw paragraph, where I simply gush and fan-girl over how much I adore him. Are you ready? Yes, I am too. Where should I start? Noah's great looks, his amazing sense of humor, his caring nature.... Well, Noah is an all round good guy, who tries hard to be there for the ones he care for. What gave Noah bonus points was that he was prepared to stick by Mara, no matter where she went or what she decided, he was always there and never doubted her. Not to mention his unique humor and charm! Sigh, he will make you fan-girls out there swoon a few times as well. He is irresistibly romantic in this book so get ready to choke on your heart every now and then.
I haven't said a lot about the plot because I think you should walk in clueless about what is to happen. The novel has a strong and gripping plot, no need to worry about that. Those who fell for The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer will not be able to resist what this sequel has on offer.
