From debut author Caroline Kepnes comes You, one of Suspense Magazine’s Best Books of 2014, and a brilliant and terrifying novel for the social media age.

When a beautiful, aspiring writer strides into the East Village bookstore where Joe Goldberg works, he does what anyone would do: he Googles the name on her credit card.

There is only one Guinevere Beck in New York City. She has a public Facebook account and Tweets incessantly, telling Joe everything he needs to know: she is simply Beck to her friends, she went to Brown University, she lives on Bank Street, and she’ll be at a bar in Brooklyn tonight—the perfect place for a “chance” meeting.

As Joe invisibly and obsessively takes control of Beck’s life, he orchestrates a series of events to ensure Beck finds herself in his waiting arms. Moving from stalker to boyfriend, Joe transforms himself into Beck’s perfect man, all while quietly removing the obstacles that stand in their way—even if it means murder.

A terrifying exploration of how vulnerable we all are to stalking and manipulation, debut author Caroline Kepnes delivers a razor-sharp novel for our hyper-connected digital age. You is a compulsively readable page-turner that’s being compared to Gone Girl, American Psycho, and Stephen King’s Misery.

5.0 The Story of You
"You" follows Joe Goldberg as he tells his love interest and eventual girlfriend (Guinevere Beck known as Beck) all about why he fell in love with her and how he has been doing his best to keep her safe from what Joe sees as negative outside influences.

3.0 Dark and Disturbing
The novel YOU by Caroline Kepnes will soon be adapted as a new tv series this Fall on Lifetime. It will be interesting to see how these characters are portrayed, especially since much of the setting takes place inside the narrator’s depraved mind. Joe Goldberg works in a bookstore, and is a relati...

5.0 Review of YOU, by Caroline Kepnes
Very few books have left me both speechless, and in such a post-book fog. YOU is obsession in word form. I am not a fast reader. I devoured this book in just over a day: I read it, I ate it, I slept it, until there was no more to consume. I wanted to know what happened, but I didn't want it to end. ...
