You Were Made For Me by Jenna Guillaume

9781760982591

The day I created a boy started out like any other.

Katie didn’t mean to create a boy. A boy like a long-lost Hemsworth brother: six-foot tall with floppy hair and eyes like the sky on a clear summer’s day; whose lips taste like cookie-dough and whose skin smells like springtime.

A boy who is completely devoted to Katie.

He was meant to be perfect.

But he was never meant to exist.

With this being her second novel, Jenna is fast becoming the rising star of the #LoveOzYA rom-com. While this is quite a different book to her debut What I Like About Me, it is just as enjoyable – I fell more in love with it the more I read.

Jenna’s writing is smart, funny, and accurately captures the contemporary teenage voice she is aiming for with her characters. With loads of pop-culture references, and a unique ‘Australian-ness’ to her setting, teens are sure to love this book.

Rating: 4.5/5
