A personal message from Lelsey Lokko...

Dear LoveReading Readers (if that’s what I call you!),

I’ve never been nominated for anything in my entire life so this is a real surprise and I’m absolutely thrilled to be on the shortlist. Although I feel as though I’ve been writing for decades, I’m still at the beginning of my career so something like this really is a Very Big Deal indeed. Thank you again and again for the nomination . . . and for your vote should you decide to give it to me!

With warmest best wishes (from a decidedly un-summery Jo’burg)

Lesley

Synopsis

Rich Girl, Poor Girl by Lesley Lokko

Nic, Caryn and Tory: three girls who form a friendship that should last a lifetime. Nic is the daughter of a white Zimbabwean business tycoon. Despite a life of jaw-dropping wealth and privilege, all she really wants is a bit of attention from daddy. Caryn never met her father - but growing up on a tough London sink estate, she had other things to worry about. Like getting out and moving on. Tory just yearns for some space to be herself. Living in the shadow of your dead sister is tough, particularly when she seemed to be everything you're not. Then beautiful, ruthless Estelle McKenzie appears on the scene. Estelle has a secret - and one way or another, she's going to make each woman pay a very high price for it.

About the Author

Lesley Lokko

Lesley Lokko was our Guest Editor in April 2011 - click here - to see the books that inspired her writing.

Lesley Lokko’s most recent novel, One Secret Summer, has just been released in paperback and her next, A Private Affair, is due out this summer. After spending seven years training to be an architect, she promptly threw in the towel and began writing fiction instead. Lesley now splits her time between London, Accra and Johannesburg, with the odd winter spent writing in cottage just outside Edinburgh. Her Scottish friends think she’s mad.
