Review: Hysteria by Megan Miranda

Mallory killed her boyfriend, Brian. She can't remember the details of that night but everyone knows it was self-defense, so she isn't charged. But Mallory still feels Brian's presence in her life. Is it all in her head? Or is it something more? In desperate need of a fresh start, Mallory is sent to Monroe, a fancy prep school where no one knows her . . . or anything about her past.But the feeling follows her, as do her secrets. Then, one of her new classmates turns up dead. As suspicion falls on Mallory, she must find a way to remember the details of both deadly nights so she can prove her innocence-to herself and others. In another riveting tale of life and death, Megan Miranda's masterful storytelling brings readers along for a ride to the edge of sanity and back again.

This book really took me by surprise. I went into it thinking it would be something I might enjoy a bit, but I never expected to like it as much as I did. 
The story kept me guessing all the way to the end. Miranda was right on with the mystery aspect of the story. I was so confused, but I liked it. I kept trying to come up with my own answers, but I was always way off. Most mysteries are so predictable, so it was quite refreshing.

And I would just like to talk about the amazing boy in this book. Reid was wonderful. I loved how understanding he was with Mallory. He never doubted her, and he was always trying to protect her. It was so sweet.

All in all, this book is now one of my favorites. If you love a good mystery, you should definitely give it a try. And if you don't like mysteries, try it anyway! :)
