NINA KENWOOD – IT SOUNDED BETTER IN MY HEAD

The romantic comedy of the year, this is the story of Natalie: unsure of herself in the summer between high school and university. This book is for anyone who’s ever hidden in the bathroom at a party, or cringed inwardly at something they’ve said. It Sounded Better in My Head is a YA release that will appeal to women everywhere - it’s for the awkward teen in all of us! Nina Kenwood is the marketing manager at Readings Bookshop in Melbourne. It Sounded Better in My Head won the 2018 Text Prize for Young Adult and Children’s Writing. This is her first book.
