Becky James lives in a small town where nothing ever changes. But there’s something very different about the new student, Gene Newman.
Brilliant, talented, and socially awkward, Gene is like nobody else Becky has ever known. Little does she know just how different he actually is.
Gene confides in Becky that he has a secret. More than that, he is a secret. And, apparently, it’s a secret worth killing for.

“Made 4 You is a perfect mixture of mystery, romance, and pulse-pounding action, but it’s also a timely and compassionate look at how we define our identities. Walters has created a protagonist we can relate to and a love interest we want to meet ... Gene is talented and awkward and endlessly earnest, and readers will root for him as he tries to find his own version of normal. The plot is fueled by the mystery of Gene’s origins, and Walters expertly unravels that central mystery while maintaining the angst and self-doubt and bursts of joy of a brand-new teenage relationship. At its heart, the story suggests that even if we were amazing at everything we tried, the most important things in life would still be the people we love and the connections we forge with them. That’s the real message behind Made 4 You, and it’s one worth sharing.”
