I haven't done one of these in a while, but I'm really looking forward to You by Charles Benoit.
This wasn't the way it was supposed to go.
You're just a typical fifteen-year-old sophomore, an average guy named Kyle Chase. This can't be happening to you. But then, how do you explain all the blood? How do you explain how you got here in the first place?
There had to have been signs, had to have been some clues it was coming. Did you miss them, or ignore them? Maybe if you can figure out where it all went wrong, you can still make it right. Or is it already too late? Think fast, Kyle. Time's running out. How did this happen?
You is the riveting story of fifteen-year-old Kyle and the small choices he does and doesn't make that lead to his own destruction.
In his stunning young-adult debut, Charles Benoit mixes riveting tension with an insightful—and unsettling—portrait of an ordinary teen in a tale that is taut, powerful, and shattering.***
So I've been doing some snooping and really can't find that much info on You. Other than that it's fantabulous and just about everybody who has gotten their hands on an ARC is raving nonstop about it. Seriously, I think You is set to be one of the best books of 2010. The amount of critical praise it's garnered is mind-boggling. Read more about it here.
I'm so excited, it's ridiculous.
Release Date: August 24, 2010
