What I Like About Me book launch
Join us in celebrating the launch of Jenna Guillaume’s fresh, funny and topical debut YA novel, What I Like About Me!
The last thing sixteen-year-old Maisie Martin thought she’d be doing this summer is entering a beauty pageant.
Not when she’s spent most of her life hiding her body from everyone. Not when her Dad is AWOL for Christmas and her gorgeous older sister has returned to rock Maisie’s shaky confidence. And her best friend starts going out with the boy she’s always loved.
But Maisie’s got something to prove.
6pm arrivals for 6.30pm start.
Jenna Guillaume has been working and writing in teen spaces for more than ten years now. Jenna is currently editor-at-large for BuzzFeed Australia, where she writes about very important things like pop culture, identity, feminism, social media, and Chris Hemsworth’s biceps.
Previously, she spent more than half a decade in the features department of Girlfriend magazine, editing the sealed section (yes, all those questions are real), and writing about everything from bullying and body image to bad kisses and boy bands. She was also a contributor to Girlfriend Life Hacks, an essential guide to navigating a girl’s completely-awkward-but-totally awesome teen years.
