Joe Goldberg meets a girl at the East Village bookstore where he works. Joe gets her name from a credit card; she is Beck Guinevere. He googles her name and finds her public Facebook and Twitter account. Those social networks tell him a lot about Beck; where she is from, what street she lives on, and even which bar she is going out to tonight. Joe begins to stalk her and believes she is perfect for him. Then he tries to make her fall in love with him.
You is a Caroline Kepnes’s debut novel. She has created a psychological thriller story for the digital age. This story may be scary, but it shows how visible our personal details are on social media. Earlier this year, the Lifetime network announced that they were developing an adaptation of You. Before the shows release, read the book and meet Joe Goldberg. But be prepared for his twisted and delusional love story.
