'Every Line of You' by Naomi Gibson. Signed bookplate copy. Paperback
I didn't build Henry because I was able to. I built him because I was lonely.
He was my distraction, my friend. Someone to comfort me when I had bad dreams about my brother and my dad. Someone to vent about my mum.
Now he's outstripped me and is capable of so much more. He can stretch his digital fingers, hurt people who've hurt me. Offer a protection no one else could. But now there's a cybercrime unit watching our every move and asking questions about Henry that I can't answer.
What is Henry? What have I created? What have I come to love?"
