Synopsis from Goodreads
Eva Tilling wakes up in the hospital to discover she possesses a strange new skill—the ability to foresee people’s deaths when they touch her. While she is recovering from her hit-and-run accident, 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 their friends—and each other—from falling into the hands of a killer.
It’s been a long time between reading the book and remembering to write my review, so apologies this is going to be short and to the point 🙂 Or maybe you should be cheering LOL
Made for You is a unique twist on a thriller with paranormal elements. Told in first person narrative dual narrative giving unique and often chilling insight into the mind of a sociopath.
The characters are unique, all carrying their secrets making suspicion on everyone likely at some point through the narrative. I can say I did guess the identity of the perpetrator early on in the story, but then I was addicted to mysteries as a child and find it easy to guess, let me tell you there is nothing obvious about the person to suggest they would commit such terrible acts.
The thing that stood out for me the most in Made for You was the thought-provoking twist regarding nature versus nurture, ingeniously executed within the narrative adding depth to the story as a whole.
Made for You is a clever psychological thriller recommended for older teens.
