Made For You
by Melissa Marr
Release Date: September 16th, 2014
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.
First of all, this cover is beautiful and draws me in with many questions. I have been a fan of Melissa Marr and her writing since first reading Wicked Lovely. She has a very unique style and I find all of her characters very compelling. Some of the villains in her books are my favorite characters and that is a credit to her talent and how the characters are presented. I will most certainly be reading this book once it is released and I recommend you all do as well.
About the Author:
Melissa grew up believing in faeries, ghosts, and various other creatures. After teaching college lit for a decade, she applied her fascination with folklore to writing.
Wicked Lovely was her first novel; it was simultaneously released in the US and UK by HarperCollins in 2007 (with translation rights also sold in twenty-some countries). It debuted as a NY Times Bestseller and evolved into a multi-book series with myriad accolades and international bestseller lists.
Her debut adult book, Graveminder, released to strong critical reception in 2011. Following that she has written for younger readers (The Blackwell Pages series; 2013-2015) with her friend Kelley Armstrong, edited anthologies with Kelley and with her friend Tim Pratt, and released a second adult novel (The Arrivals) in 2013. Her first picture book (Bunny Roo) will be released in 2015.
Currently, Melissa lives in Virginia with her spouse and three kids, writes full time, and still believes in faeries, monsters, and ghosts.
