No one is expecting the chaos that breaks out when the notorious Berlin criminal Ragnar Desche and his henchmen discover Ragnar’s brother, Oskar, dead, and a huge cache of their drugs gone missing. Least of all, a group of teenage girlfriends out together at the movies, daydreaming about boys and worrying about acne. They’re missing one of their clique, and the trouble she’s about to find herself in will bring all the girls face-to-face with the Desche gang and force them into a fight for their lives that every cell in their bodies should tell them they can never win. But the violent clash between these two gangs may be more evenly matched than it first appears. Written entirely in the second person and told through flashbacks that revisit events from various points of view — You is an audacious and shrewdly plotted novel.

For anyone who’s ever had trouble starting, keeping, or finishing a journal or sketchbook comes this expanded edition of Wreck This Journal, an illustrated book that features a subversive collection of prompts, asking readers to muster up their best mistake and mess-making abilities and to fill the pages of the book (or destroy them).
