Publisher's Summary

From debut author Nina Kenwood comes a tender and funny novel about first love and its confusions, and all of the awkwardness of teen romance.

When her parents announce their impending divorce, Natalie can’t understand why no one is fighting, or at least mildly upset. Then, Zach and Lucy, her two best friends, hook up, leaving her feeling slightly miffed and decidedly awkward. She’d always imagined she would end up with Zach one day - in the version of her life that played out like a TV show, with just the right amount of banter, pining, and meaningful looks. Now, everything has changed, and nothing is quite making sense. Until an unexpected romance comes along and shakes things up even further.

It Sounded Better in My Head is a love letter to teenage romance in all of its awkward glory, perfect for fans To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and Emergency Contact.

"I love, love, loved it." (Melina Marchetta, author of Jellicoe Road)

"Nina Kenwood has created nuanced and authentic characters, each caught up in their trajectory toward adulthood...a gorgeous and funny coming-of-age novel that perfectly captures the awkward, liminal nature of adolescence." (Books + Publishing starred review)
