Henry Hamlet's Heart Coming July 2021

Henry Hamlet doesn’t know what he wants after school ends. It’s his last semester of year twelve and all he’s sure of is his uncanny ability to make situations awkward. Luckily, he can always hide behind his enigmatic best friend, Len. They’ve been friends since forever, but where Len is mysterious, Henry is clumsy; where Len is a heart-throb, Henry is a neurotic mess. Somehow it’s always worked.

That is, until Henry falls. Hard. For the last person he imagined.

Queensland Literary Awards judges' comments:

‘The characters and their family dynamics feel agonisingly authentic, and the prose is witty and engaging. It’s easy to get carried away by this story, which deftly breaks your heart and sticky-tapes it back together again.’
