The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

After a fatal accident claims her best friends and her boyfriend, Mara Dyer starts over and finds love in Miami, only to find herself haunted by PTSD and what may be the ghosts of her dead boyfriend.

I was drawn in by the supernatural aspect of The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, but put off by the Twilightesqueness of the love story between Mara and Noah. The whole “he’s a bad boy with a bad reputation and a big vocabulary” thing really bothered me. Plus Mara continually tells Noah that she hates him–yet he keeps coming back for more. Really irritating and it took away from the rest of the story to the point where I’m not planning to read the next book, despite everything else I liked about it.
