Summary
*Soon to be a Lifetime drama series*

" Hypnotic and scary." --Stephen King

"I am RIVETED, AGHAST, AROUSED, you name it. The rare instance when prose and plot are equally delicious." --Lena Dunham

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 .
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The day Guinevere Beck walks into Joe Goldberg's East Village bookstore, life for both of them will never be the same. Guinevere is a hot young thing, beautiful, creative, and tough, recently transplanted to New York City to attend graduate school. Beck is Joe's dream girl, everything he has ever wanted in a significant other. When Joe rescues her in the subway, a grateful Beck agrees to go out with him. Thus begins a relationship defined by passion, obsession, and even murder. Joe becomes the ultimate stalker. He spies on Beck through her curtainless windows and gains access to her e-mails and tweets by stealing her phone. Written in the second person, You is the story of one man's life, a life where love becomes obsession, and obsession becomes murder, experienced and perpetrated by a character who is strangely likable despite his bad behavior. Kepnes, a television writer and journalist, has written a deeply dark yet mesmerizing first novel of two people caught in a romantic tangle with an ever-tightening knot.--Gladstein, Carol Copyright 2014 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Debut novelist Kepnes's seriously unsettling depiction of stalking nevertheless manages to invoke glimmers of sympathy for its perpetrator. Joe is working as a clerk at a bookstore on New York City's Lower East Side when M.F.A. writing student Guinevere Beck (known as Beck) saunters in. Joe knows immediately that they're meant to be together. What follows is a chronicle of Joe's psychotic preoccupation with Beck, told in Joe's relentless, alternately passionate and vitriolic narration and addressed to Beck as "you." Astonishingly enough, his fixation materializes into a relationship of sorts. Joe, who is well-read but never attended college, has a chip on his shoulder about his education and class status and the assumptions people make about him. Beck, for her part, prefers to stir up dramas rather than seriously work on her writing. What's most chilling about this novel, besides its plausibility, is the way in which Kepnes makes the reader empathize with Joe during the journey into his troubled mind. Her book will have readers looking over their shoulders-and examining their own motivations. Agent: Jennifer Rudolph Walsh and Claudia Ballard, WME Entertainment. (Sept.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
