About the Book

“Mary Shelley in the Bachelor era…feminist as hell.”
—Katie Gutierrez, nationally bestselling author of More Than Youll Ever Know

Hi. My name is Julia. I’m a Synth. And I’m here to find love…

Synthetic woman Julia Walden was designed for one reason: to compete on The Proposal and claim the heart of bachelor Josh LaSala. Her casting is controversial, but Julia seems to get her fairy-tale ending when Josh gets down on one knee.

Fast-forward fifteen months, and Julia and Josh are married and raising their baby in small-town Indiana. But with haters around every corner, Julia’s life is a far cry from the domestic bliss she imagined. Then her splintering world shatters: Josh goes missing, and she becomes the prime suspect in his murder.

With no one left she can trust, Julia takes the investigation into her own hands. But the explosive truths she uncovers will drive her to her breaking point—and isn’t that where a person’s true nature is revealed? That is…if Julia truly is a person.

Told via dual timelines, Jenna Satterthwaite’s twist-filled debut deftly explores the exhilarating point where artificial intelligence, reality TV, and bone-chilling murder mystery meet.

Critical Praise

"The Bachelor meets Black Mirror (with a splash of Barbie gone dark) in this captivating, empowering, and wildly original thriller. The twists and relentless suspense had my attention, but it’s the protagonist—a synthetic woman—and her exploration of humanity, motherhood, and marriage that truly had my heart. Made for You is a spectacular debut."
—Megan Collins, author of Thicker Than Water and The Family Plot

“Inventive, timely, and wildly original, Made for You is a thrill ride that never stops twisting and turning. With its smart fusion of reality TV, murder mystery, and social commentary, this story promises an addictive and thought-provoking reading experience, while feeling unlike any other book you’ve ever read. As an avid reality dating show viewer, it almost felt like Made for You was, in fact, made for me—I couldn’t stop turning pages. Jenna Satterthwaite has more than established herself as a debut author to watch.”
—Laurie Elizabeth Flynn, author of The Girls Are All So Nice Here

"What do you get when you mix high tech, reality TV, and a missing person? A layered mystery with twists galore! Made for You is a genre-blending romp that kept me riveted. Satterthwaite has established herself as a force in the mystery universe, and I can’t wait to see what she does next."
—Kristen Bird, author of Watch It Burn

"Part Black Mirror, part Bachelor, Made for You goes past the final rose and fairytale romance to explore the dark nature of human emotion told from the most unlikely of narrators: a synthetic person designed for love. A page-turner for reality TV and mystery fans alike."
—Vera Kurian, author of Never Saw Me Coming and A Step Past Darkness

"It's The Bachelor meets Ex Machina in this highly original and smartly written thriller. Engrossing and empowering, Made For You is a stunning and twisty debut. Satterthwaite is an author to watch!"
—Jeneva Rose, New York Times bestselling author

"Utterly addictive, wholly original, and deliciously twisty, Jenna Satterthwaite's Made for You is made to be devoured in one bingeworthy sitting! I could not put this book down and am a Satterthwaite fan for life!"
—May Cobb, author of The Hunting Wives

"Made for You is a deftly crafted, stunningly original debut. I loved it from the clever first pages all the way to the jaw-dropping conclusion, and I can't wait to read more from this talented author!"
—Andrea Bartz, New York Times bestselling author of The Spare Room

"Made for You is a wildly inventive, deeply felt foray into the dark borderlands between reality and possibility, creation and destruction. It's Mary Shelley in the Bachelor era, as unpredictable as it is inevitable, and feminist as hell. I couldn't look away from the explosion that Satterthwaite deftly, assuredly constructed from page one."
—Katie Gutierrez, nationally bestselling author of More Than You'll Ever Know -
