Seventeen-year-old Mara cannot remember the accident that took the lives of three of her friends but, after moving from Rhode Island to Florida, finding love with Noah, and more deaths, she realizes uncovering something buried in her memory might save her family and her future.

As soon as I read the first chapter of this book, I was hooked. I couldn't put it down. I just had to know what was going to happen next.

Mara wakes up in the hospital and she can't remember why she ended up there. She does find out that there was an accident involving a building collapsing, leaving her best friend, another friend, and her boyfriend dead. After being diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, her family moves to Florida, where they start fresh and Mara hopes she'll be able to forget all about the tragedy she suffered.

But the ghosts of her dead friends are haunting her. All of a sudden, she starts to see them. And she starts to see the death of other people, too. She keeps hallucinating and starts to feel as if reality is slipping away from her. And having the alluring--yet annoying and pushy--Noah constantly pursuing her isn't any fun for her, either.

I really enjoyed this book. I liked Mara's story. A lot. I lost myself in the misery and mystery constantly hounding her. The way she starts to see things that aren't there, and starts to think she's crazy, was written so well that at times I truly didn't know what was real and what wasn't.

I do have to admit that I didn't like Noah much. He was too pushy, cocky and full of secrets. Sometimes he even comes across as creepy. But once I found out exactly what was going on with him, it made sense why he was so desperate to connect with someone like him. Besides, their romance didn't deter from the main story, so that was cool.

Oh, and the ending--wow! I thought this book was intriguing and excellent. :)
