In the first book from her new young adult series, you’re transported from the real world to Apollo Beach where everything is absolutely beautiful and the people are the same, but different.
There’s a redemption ARC in this story which actually makes it more interesting than just being another popular girl falls for a nerd story. I really enjoyed the character growth and the incredible friendship in the story.
I did adore this book and while it took me some time to really get invested in it, I found myself cheering Jamie on as she got all the way to the end.
When was the last time you read a coming of age book that made you laugh and smile and cringe all at the same time? Because I can’t remember when that happened to me. But “It Sounded Better In My Head” by Nina Kenwood was absolutely perfect.
