I really can’t praise this book enough – I absolutely loved it and fell for the main character, Natalie, like a ton of bricks!
It Sounded Better In My Head is deeply tender coming-of age story about first love, friendship, and the all the horrifying awkwardness of navigating young adulthood. Thrumming with wonderfully nuanced and vividly depicted emotion, this book will make your heart soar, while also making you laugh.
Packed full of wry humour and an utterly lovable cast of characters – including one of the most achingly vulnerable and deeply relatable narrators I have encountered in a long time – this book is a delight to read and I am already looking forward to whatever Nina Kenwood writes next!
