Mara Dyer believes life can't get any stranger than waking up in a hospital with no memory of how she got there.
It can. 

She believes there must be more to the accident she can't remember that killed her friends and left her strangely unharmed. 
There is.

She doesn't believe that after everything she's been through, she can fall in love. 
She's wrong.

At first, I really adored this novel; creepy, thrilling, mysterious, disturbing hallucinations well what could I ask for? I was really hooked with its first 5 chapters. But then everything just started to crumble. All of the sudden the story started get dull, their are some scenes that I just felt very unnecessary, like his dad being in a case. Noah suddenly can compose music. Suddenly, the story became a love story. REALLY? That is what this all about after all?

Its bad because I really had a great expectation for this book. With all the hype and good feedbacks, I just thought I might like it too. But boy, I was totally disappointed I'm really having a hard time finishing it. Well I guess it was really not meant for me. :(
