[FINISHED] Made You Up by Francesca Zappia

Dianne in here! Thank you to HarperCollins International for the touring copy and to Precious for sharing it!

Made You Up
Title: Made You Up
Author: Francesca Zappia
Publisher: Greenwillow Books
Date of Publication: May 19, 2015

Reality, it turns out, is often not what you perceive it to be—sometimes, there really is someone out to get you. Made You Up tells the story of Alex, a high school senior unable to tell the difference between real life and delusion. This is a compelling and provoking literary debut that will appeal to fans of Wes Anderson, Silver Linings Playbook, and Liar.

Alex fights a daily battle to figure out the difference between reality and delusion. Armed with a take-no-prisoners attitude, her camera, a Magic 8-Ball, and her only ally (her little sister), Alex wages a war against her schizophrenia, determined to stay sane long enough to get into college. She’s pretty optimistic about her chances until classes begin, and she runs into Miles. Didn't she imagine him? Before she knows it, Alex is making friends, going to parties, falling in love, and experiencing all the usual rites of passage for teenagers. But Alex is used to being crazy. She’s not prepared for normal.

Funny, provoking, and ultimately moving, this debut novel featuring the quintessential unreliable narrator will have readers turning the pages and trying to figure out what is real and what is made up.

  1. The characters act, talk, and think like authentic high schoolers. Zappia has a humorous, quirky writing style that zips along, and you can tell she had a lot of fun writing it.
