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.


Praise for What I Like About Me

'Funny and heartfelt. I loved it.' Melina Marchetta

'Teens are going to LOVE this book. Such a sweet coming of age tale.' Clementine Ford, bestselling author of Fight Like a Girl

'Heartfelt and unexpectedly deep under its sparkling exterior, this novel features an authentic teen voice, a diverse cast of genuinely likeable characters, a distinctly (and refreshingly) Australian ambience, and a charming protagonist.' Readings
