Synopsis

Kiss Me First by Lottie Moggach

Leila has never met Tess, but she now knows more about Tess than anyone in the world. She's read all of her emails, researched her past and asked Tess for every detail about her friends and family. Tess has never met Leila. But if she wants to slip away from the world unnoticed, she needs to trust Leila with her life. At first, Leila finds it easy to assume Tess's identity, and no one has any reason to distrust her. But as Leila is soon to discover, there is much more to a person than the facts and there are things about life you can learn only by living it ...

Praise for Lottie Moggach:

'A brave, poignant and humane novel about society's taboos -- and the cost of breaking them. Lottie Moggach has put her finger to the pulse of our times.'
Liz Jensen, author of The Rapture

'Witty, suspenseful, satirical and bold. A Patricia Highsmith for the Facebook age.'
Polly Samson, author of Perfect Lives

'Lottie Moggach's very smart Kiss Me First is a moving coming of age story hidden within a harrowing mystery... The story's suspense will keep you reading, but it's Leila's surprisingly emotional journey toward selfhood that will stick with you long after you've finished this wonderful first novel.'
Scott Smith, author of A Simple Plan
