Caroline Kepnes works as a journalist, having covered pop culture for Entertainment Weekly, Tiger Beat, Teen Machine, E! Online, and Yahoo! TV. She has also written for the television shows 7th Heaven and The Secret Life of the American Teenager. She lives in Los Angeles. You, her first novel, has just been released and has been compared to Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl.
Two married giants who share a life together in a chateau on a deserted island must react when people come along in boats. Charles is wary because of their past troubles with vistors; he says humans cannot be trusted. Charlotte is lonely because of the present isolation; she wants to take the risk, she wants friends. I have come back to this profound, dark, unique childrenís book so many times over the years. It inspires me to think about loneliness, vulnerability, gender roles and the outer limits of human nature. This is a horror story without a drop of blood.
