From the Back Cover

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?

It seems impossible that anyone would have it out for the town darling. Thanks to her family's distinguished history and her own unassailable reputation in old-money Jessup, Eva is universally liked. But she has little time to consider the question when she finds that she's awoken with a strange new skill: the ability to foresee people's deaths when they touch her.

Eva is struggling to understand just what these visions mean when a slew of murders takes place back home. The victims, all classmates, are discovered alongside eerie messages that tie the incidents to her. There is a killer on the loose, and he is after Eva.

While she is recovering from the hit-and-run, Nate, an old friend, reappears. The two 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 determined killer grows increasingly frantic in his attempt to get to Eva.

Chilling twists, unrequited obsession, and high-stakes romance drive Melissa Marr's racy thriller—a story of small-town oppression and salvation.

Melissa Marr's MADE FOR YOU is an exciting and page-turning thriller. The story is dark and chilling, the killer is creepy and disturbing, and the mystery will keep you guessing. Told from multiple points of view, including the killer's perspective, the author keeps things interesting by letting events unfold through more than just her main character Eva's viewpoint.

The stage is quickly set when Eva Tilling is nearly killed by an unidentified stalker known only as Judge. What at first seems like a hit and run turns out to be the first in a series of murders which are revealed to be connected to Eva. While the killer's motivation is his obsession with Eva, he claims he is following the Lord's plan. And as his need to deliver his message to Eva grows so does the danger to Eva and her friends.

MADE FOR YOU adds an interesting twist to the typical mystery novel with Eva's ability to foresee people's deaths following her near-death "accident." Not only does it make for a more suspenseful read, it gives the protagonist a way to catch the killer. And as it's an unpredictable ability, and one that is not easily believable, it creates tension in the story for both characters and readers.

I was quite surprised by the level of creepiness in this read. I did not expect the murders to be as shocking and horrifying as they were. I did not expect to learn what I learned about the killer's "inspiration" for what he did. And I did not expect there to be a religious element to this story. The author went well beyond the standard boundaries in YA to craft her spine-tingling tale.

I had to read this book once my order from Amazon came in, well as soon as I had finished the last e-galley I read. And I must say that I wasn't disappointed at all. I will admit at first I was a bit worried, as the main character was a girl who was popular and pretty but complaining about all that and not wanting it. But you do learn throughout the book that while she was those things, the popularity had a lot to do with who her family was, and it may not have been something she really wanted, so you are okay with it. Or maybe I should say I was better with it.

The main character is Eva. She is popular, because her parents are descended from the families that own a lot of the town, as well as the big minister in town. She's dating the most popular guy, Robert. She had a boy who had been her best friend when she was younger, who has grown up to be quite handsome. His name is Nate. But something happened a few years ago, and he changed. He just quit talking to her, and kind of turned into a man-slut. And then there is "Judge". The killer, or in Eva's case, he hits her with his car, but she survives. We get to spend some of the chapters from his point of view. We don't know just who he is right away. (Although I did guess and get it right!) His mind is quite warped, as you'd expect someone like that to be. He decides that since Eva didn't die when he'd tried to kill her, that it was God sending him a message and that she was meant for him. So now he thinks he must send her a message. And that is what leads to the other deaths.

Eva wakes up in the hospital after the accident, not remembering anything about it. She can tell her life will be changed as she sees the horrible cuts on her face, and now she has a broken leg as well.

Made for You is the first book by Melissa Marr that I've read so far. I enjoyed how the mystery was built up during the first 3/4 of the book. We are given multiple point of view's including Judge's, the murderous stalker. Having his point of view really let me see inside his head. His perspective was twisted and dark, but it was needed to bring the story to life. In the last quarter of the book, Judge basically tells you who he is. After that, the mystery was gone. We obviously needed to find out eventually, but I expected the revelation to be less casual in manner. I thought the pacing flowed pretty nicely. The characters were significant within the story. There weren't random perspectives thrown in just for the heck of it like you find in books sometimes. I appreciated that. It steadily kept my attention.

Made for You by Melissa Marr was kindly provided to me by the publisher through Edelweiss for review. The opinions are my own.

I might have been expecting a bit too much going into this one, and I shouldn't have. Like I've said a million times before YA mystery/thriller is a disappointing genre. I think everyone wants to be the next Sara Shepard. I would rather they just be themselves, and write a mystery/thriller that is possibly comparable but better.

Marr did a decent job of keeping me intrigued for about 70% but once I discovered who the mystery person is, I was done. Sorry not sorry. It just wasn't shocking enough. It was kind of like, "Oh. That's who it is."

Don't get me wrong the book had some things going for it for a while but I can't say that I was feeling it all that much. Why? I didn't connect with any of the characters. Like, none of them. And don't even get me started on the so-called romance. There was nothing romantic about it--which of course was a huge disappointment, to put it mildly.

I read the book and I was dying to know who the killer was, and that's why I kept reading. I had a feeling early on I wouldn't be giving this one more than three stars, and by the end I was right. To put it bluntly, a lot of these characters are spoiled popular kids. They're the kind that are uber cool because of their parent's status, and money. They're spoiled, and will probably dismiss anyone outside of their inner circle--which they did.

There was no particular part of this book that I was blown away by or shocked by. Marr tried I'll give her that--maybe if the discovery of the killer was more shocker it would have worked better. I'm not sure. But I read the book through to completion so I feel like I did all I'm supposed to do.

I wasn't happy with the reveal, or the romance, and that pretty much ruined any chances of excitement I may have had. I'm not discouraging anyone from reading this, but read it at your own risk--because sadly it wasn't that impressive.
