YA LIT MEME : [1/7] Friendships → Jamie Roth & Mara Dyer | Mara Dyer Trilogy
"You look like you could use a hug," said a voice from behind me. I turned around to face a smiling short boy wearing an open, white button-down shirt. A yellow T-shirt that said I AM CLICHÉ was beneath it.
"That’s very generous of you," I said, plastering a smile on my face. "But I think I’ll manage." It was important to act not crazy.
"Oh, I wasn’t offering. Just making an observation." The boy pushed his wild dreadlocks out of his eyes and held out his hand. "I’m Jamie Roth."
"Mara Dyer," I said, though he already knew.
Wait, are you new here?” A mischievous grin reached his dark eyes.
I matched it. “Funny. You’re funny.”
My name is not Mara Dyer, but my lawyer told me I had to choose something. A pseudonym. A nom de plume, for all of us studying for the SAT’s. I know that having a fake name is strange, but trust me—it’s the most normal thing about my life right now. Even telling you this much probably isn’t smart. But without my big mouth, none would know that a seventeen-year-old who likes Death Cab for Cutie was responsible for the murders. No one would know that somewhere out there is a B student with a body count. And it’s important that you know, so you’re not next.
