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 insightfuland unsettlingportrait 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 tellsof the ways in which we become imprisoned by our own choices, big and smallis 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 bookand 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 forebodingand 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 Awardwinning 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 Awardwinning author of Deadline

Listened to this as part of the 2019 SYNC YA program. I liked the story overall. I think I need to read/listen again as I‘m not sure exactly what happened at the end. It was a sad story and I wish it wasn‘t so close to reality.

I listened to this title as part of the 2019 SYNC releases. This book is told in second-person, focusing on a high school boy and his high school experiences. It was funny and interesting, but I have to admit that the ending happened so quickly that I'm not sure I really know what happened. I think teenage boys and girls would enjoy this book.
