Hopefully you've enjoyed Mara Dyer week so far. We're already at Day 4!
Today's post started out as a "Dream Cast" type post but something kept pulling me towards the guys in the book. All the different men in Mara's life and how the different relationships impact her story.
So without further ado.... May I present....
The Men (and boys) of The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer
Physical Description: Dark hair, and dark complexion. Mara calls him "Mr Perfect" and he resembles his mother (again according to Mara)
Relationship to Mara : her protective older brother
Impact on Mara: he's a support system. He is there for Mara and really cares about his sister.
Note about the picture I chose: I kept picturing a Colin Egglesfield look a like, so I tried to find the youngest photo I could. He's too old now, but something similar to this is what I imagine.
Physical Description: Mara says that he looks like Daniel.
Relationship to Mara: her sweet younger brother
Impact on Mara: he provides a person for whom she worries about. She really cares about how he is going to think, react, etc to the stuff that is going on. She wants to protect him. She care about her whole family, but it seems amplified when it comes to Joseph, most likely because he is younger.
Note on the photo: I could not find anyone that I felt suited. He is described as looking like Daniel anyways.
Physical Description:: Dread locks, short, dimples and likes to dress up his school uniform with his own t-shirts
Relationship to Mara: best friend extraordinaire
Impact on Mara: first person to be friendly towards Mara when she transfers schools. He's witty, sarcastic and their banter provides some normalcy to Mara's crazy life. He also happens to be an awesome math tutor and likes to look out for his friends(especially if a Britsh hottie with a certain reputation is involved)
Note on the picture I chose : I picked Corbien Bleu because that is who I kept picturing. Sadly, Corbin does not have the dreads that Jamie is supposed to, but otherwise I think he's about right.
Physical Description: All American, blond hair, green eyes and a football player
Relationship to Mara: ex-boyfriend
Impact on Mara: Huge. He was with Mara the night of the accident, and she is haunted by not being able to remember what happened to him.
Note on the picture I chose: I chose Zach Roeig because he reminds me of an "All American" football player, and he's blond.
Description: Grey/Blue eyes, chestnut hair, scruffy, British accent, with a panting dropping smile (according to Jamie) and he also happens to love animals. Basically, the hottest boy in YA ever.
Relationship to Mara - Um, let's call him a maybe boyfriend
Impact on Mara- SO MUCH! I don't know where to start. Noah helps Mara in figuring out what is going on with her, he supports her, and listens to her. He's someone that she can talk to.
Note on the picture I chose: Ben Barnes. Sigh. He just needs to be a little scruffy and his eyes are not the right colour but he could work. He just needs to be a little disheveled in this picture.
These are some of the most important men in Mara's life. They will all hopefully play a role in the second book.
Mara Dyer Week ends tomorrow with a look ahead to book 2. Come back tomorrow and see what I am most looking forward to.
