Made You Up is about a girl named Alex who has schizophrenia. After changing schools after an incident, she is surprised to encounter a boy named Miles. They had an encounter as kids, though Alex assumed that he was in her imagination.
Her main goal is to get into college and graduate without any more episodes. She knows that if anything else happens, her mother will admit her to a mental hospital.
Alex narrates the story, which is interesting because she knows about her illness but still has trouble telling what around her is and isn’t real. She is also incredibly funny and sympathetic.
I like this subset of YA books about teens dealing with mental illness. Made You Up is an excellent addition to the genre.
