MADE FOR YOU by Melissa Marr

Made for You by Melissa Marr
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I found this book listed on the library's database and it sounded intriguing. So I put it on hold and started reading it as soon as it arrived.

Eva is an average teenage girl trying to live a normal life. She has a boyfriend, a large group of friends, and a bestie. Well, she likes to think she's average but in the small town of Jessup the heritage on both sides of her family makes her royalty. So everyone's always watching what she does.

Some a lot closer than she realises.

The night she gets runover and left for dead, her life changes forever. Her face is scarred, she reconnects with her forever crush, and when someone touches her she can see their death. As if that's not macabre enough, someone is killing girls she knows. And leaving messages for her. She might not understand the messages like the killer intends, but one thing is clear: there's a killer and it's someone she knows.

Someone who won't give up until he/she gets what he/she wants: Eva.

I really enjoyed this book. It's told in the first-person POV of several characters so the readers experiences the story from several angles.

Eva is a great narrator. I liked following her struggle and recovery. I also liked that she was straightforward and told people--especially her love interest, Nate--exactly what she felt/thought. No hiding behind teenage indecision. Nate was interesting and had his own issues, while Grace was a nice and loyal friend.

The freakiest POV was the killer's. That sick fuck was seriously disturbed and hid behind religious bullshit to reason out his/her reasoning for doing horrible things and thinking disgusting thoughts.

This really turned out to be a great book with a bit of everything. It's a YA thriller with a dark, mysterious core. It's also got a nice love story, strong friendship, and a touch of the paranormal.
