Bestselling author of the Wicked Lovely books Melissa Marr’s first contemporary YA novel is a twisted southern gothic tale of obsession, romance, and murder. A killer is obsessed with Eva Tilling. Can she stop him, or will he claim her?

When Eva Tilling wakes up in the hospital, she’s confused—who in her sleepy little North Carolina town could have hit her with their car? And why? But before she can consider the question, she finds that she’s awoken with a strange new skill: the ability to foresee people’s deaths when they touch her. While she is recovering from the hit-and-run, Nate, an old flame, reappears, and the two must traverse their rocky past as they figure out how to use Eva’s power to keep her friends—and themselves—alive. But while Eva and Nate grow closer, the killer grows increasingly frantic in his attempt to get to Eva.

For the first time, New York Times bestselling author Melissa Marr has applied her extraordinary talent to contemporary realism. Chilling twists, unrequited obsession, and high-stakes romance drive this Gothic, racy thriller—a story of small-town oppression and salvation. Melissa’s fans, and every YA reader, will find its wild ride enthralling

Now, the psychology behind the process of the killer in Made For You was perfect, spot on. It's the main thing I loved about it, and that's what kept me reading. Usually when it comes to serial killers/killers I usually have issues with the development behind it- they usually don't add all up or are adapted for the convenience of the story. Even when they do have the killers perspective, never really gave me the creeps as much as I thought it would, because they always had this line that they wouldn't cross because of YA, but it always made it unrealistic
Not that you'd count the killer in Made for You as a serial killer- it's complicated.
