Made for You by Melissa Marr
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I thought this was a solidly good YA thriller. Nothing groundbreaking but not poorly written either. After failing to murder the current high school 'IT' girl a serial murderer turns to trying to communicate with her through his killings as he becomes increasingly obsessed with her. There is an unnecessary plot theme regarding small town aristocracy in the small southern town that is the stories setting. This idea of local southern snobbery comes across lukewarm as a plot device that was never quite followed through with but kept getting brought up. Also, the narration switches throughout the novel between the the killer, the 'it' girl and her best friend. The best friends narration was entirely unnecessary and was more distracting than anything. Otherwise this novel was entertaining enough for me to consider reading more of the authors work.
