"The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer strikes a rare balance of darkly funny, deliciously creepy and genuinely thoughtful. One minute I was laughing out loud, and the next, I was so scared I wanted to turn on all the lights and hide under the covers. (Her) talent and range are obvious, from her chilling descriptions to romantic scenes that almost crackled on the page. I’ve never read anything quite like it." Veronica Roth, NYT bestselling author of Divergent
"Hodkin's skillful exploitation of ambiguity enhances the suspense, exploring not only the psychological possibilities, but narrative tricks as well. Is it a realistic tale of insanity, a supernatural story or a mystery? Readers will be guessing until a final suspenseful scene resolves some secrets and sets up what promises to be an exciting and intriguing next installment." Kirkus Reviews
"Haunting and dreamlike, the intrigue and romance of Mara Dyer will inescapably draw you in." Cassandra Clare, author of the NYT bestselling Mortal Instruments series
"A clever, captivating thriller…perfect for those (like me) who like their heroes dark, their heroines dangerous, and their romances seriously twisted." Kirsten Miller, NYT bestselling author of The Eternal Ones
