Description

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.

Advance praise for You:

"You is authentic, ambitious, and gripping. A serious book that reads like a suspense novel, the story it tells--of the ways in which we become imprisoned by our own choices, big and small--is both frightening and frighteningly real."

--Lauren Oliver, New York Times bestselling author of Before I Fall

"Charles Benoit has written a shattering, gut-wrenching novel that puts You right in the center of the story. Pick it up and you won't put it down!"

--Michael Grant, New York Times bestselling author of Gone

"I sat down to start this book--and didn't get up until I'd finished it, a riveting three hours later. You is pitch-perfect: funny, real, touching, brimming with tension and foreboding--and still surprising right up to the last page. one of the best ya novels I've read in years."

--Patricia McCormick, National Book Award finalist, author of Sold and Purple Heart

"A sandstorm of a novel, as harshly real as hell or high school. I loved it."

--Robert Lipsyte, Margaret A. Edwards Award-winning author of The Contender and Center Field

"Wanna know who the real bad guys in your school are? Read You. This book will keep you reading, and then it will start you thinking. And talking. You is good stuff."

--Chris Crutcher, Margaret A. Edwards Award-winning author of Deadline
