July 2010 Indie Next List
“Kyle Chase,15-years-old, is about to discover how serious and shocking are the results of the small and large choices we make everyday. Their effect will be devastating to him, his friends, his parents and especially his future. YOU, a powerful novel that begs to be discussed and shared by all ages: readers' groups, youth and adult; high school literature classes; booksellers and their patrons; and most of all, parents and their children. Read it and pass it on.”
— Karen Briggs, Great Northern Books and Hobbies, Oscoda, MI
You're surprised at all the blood.
This wasn't the way it was supposed to go. You're just a typical fifteen-year-old sophomore. This can't be happening to you. But then, how do you explain the blood? How do you explain how you got here in the first place?
Maybe if you can figure out where it all went wrong, you can still make it right. Think fast. Time's running out. . . .
