Made You Up by Francesa Zappia
publication date: 2015
This is a YA detective story with a twist: the sleuth, high school senior Alex Ridgemont, can't tell when a clue is real. Alex has schizophrenia, complete with detailed visual hallucinations. In order to keep her perceptions based in reality, she takes her medication and photographs everything around her, relying on the photographs to represent reality.
