You Were Made for Me

by Jenna Guillaume

Katie has always dreamed of the perfect kiss with the perfect guy. And now he’s just appeared in her bedroom—completely naked!

“Guillaume’s cinematic story weaves together beloved romantic comedy tropes touched with magic—or is it science?” Booklist

16-year-old Katie Camilleri has accidentally created a teenage boy in her kitchen.  But Katie’s perfect dream guy doesn’t come with instructions, just lots of complications! Like stashing him under her bed so her mom doesn’t find out.  Or stealing her brother’s gym clothes to cover up a golden hottie with floppy hair and eyes like a summer sky. And what to even call him? Well, Guy, obviously!

Guy is puppy-dog devoted to Katie and will do anything to make her happy, but does Guy like Katie because he wants to or because he was created to? When Libby, Katie’s BFF, starts to question Guy’s affection, her own friendship with Katie hits the rocks. Then there’s Theo, the longtime boy next door who’s suddenly turned moody. Katie’s jock star crush, Declan, has been friendlier too. And when Katie finds herself cyberbullied by Declan’s girlfriend, it turns out standing next to an Adonis like Guy comes with a lot of unwanted attention.

With all the trouble he’s stirred up, is Katie’s dream boy all that she’s ever wished for? Or should she be looking to someone else for true love?

Jenna Guillaume, author of What I Like About Me, delivers a hilarious rom-com and uses her signature humor and relatable voice to explore themes of body image, friendship, and sexual identity. Sure to thrill fans of Jenny Han.

“Plenty of early 2000s rom-com vibes and lighthearted mishaps… Guillaume’s cinematic story weaves together beloved romantic comedy tropes touched with magic—or is it science?—and drops them into a fresh, contemporary setting. Despite the playful tone, this isn’t without nuance, taking on serious topics such as male body image, friendship, and asexuality.” —Booklist

“An enjoyable rom-com.” —Kirkus Reviews

“[Katie’s] friendship with Libby is heartwarming and relatable, and her character grows throughout the story.…a quick escape of a story that emphasizes the lesson that our idea of ‘perfection’ isn’t always what we’re looking for…. Younger teens will likely enjoy Katie’s shenanigans.” —School Library Journal
