`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 Chilling... Moggach sucks us into the rabbit hole of [Leila's] dangerous obsession with deftly timed twists and memorable characters * Entertainment Weekly * As Moggach's debut chillingly demonstrates, the virtual world is scant protection from messy, utterly human emotions * People * It's only when the introverted Leila assumes a suicidal woman's online identity that she learns how to be herself. The story straddles real life and virtual existence, the right to die and the need to live * Vogue * Gripping... The potentialities and pitfalls of contemporary communication are brilliantly explored here. Lost souls are deftly brought together... Kiss Me First is a profound examination of the processes of storytelling itself: all characters are in some way telling fictions - to each other and to themselves. Moggach cleverly raises the question: what happens if we start believing our own fictions? ... At the core of this engrossing novel is the question 'who are you?' ... the pining for real human contact - as opposed to virtual - infuses this narrative with powerful pathos and poignancy' * Metro * Fascinating... a clever concept with a truly human side' * Londonist * Intriguing... disturbing... you won't feel quite the same in an internet chatroom after you've finished it' * Evening Standard * `Lottie Moggach enters the literary scene with a bang in this very modern thriller that takes identity fraud to the next level... a gripping debut that will have you looking over your virtual shoulder as you de-clutter your friends list' Stylist `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 `Smart and darkly funny... a high-concept plot, a terrific narrator and plenty of big questions about human identity in an online world' Reader's Digest `Lottie Moggach's psychologically terrifying debut thriller, Kiss Me First, will have you questioning your presence on the world wide web' Publishers Weekly `A gripping psychological thriller... Moggach's skill in plotting means readers won't anticipate the twists and turns built into the story, making for an intensely enjoyable reading experience. Memorable and fast-moving' Publisher's Weekly, starred review `Kiss Me First has all the hallmarks of a psychological thriller bestseller... complete with plenty of twists and turns. Disturbing and compelling in equal measures, this is a tightly plotted and irresistible debut which packs a hefty punch. One of those rare beasts: a true page-turner' Laissez-Faire magazine A fascinating, unsettling and all-too-believable thriller * Easy Living * A dark psychological thriller about the threat social media poses to our sense of self... an engaging and suspenseful look at the subtle perils the web presents to the human condition * Financial Times * `I was fascinated by Kiss Me First - its unique premise got my interest from the start and Lottie Moggach's confident and compelling writing sustained it. An impressive debut.' Jessica Ruston, author of The Darker Side of Love `This original and unsettling psychological thriller is already one of the most talked-about debut novels of the year... Worryingly convincing, Kiss Me First is a brilliantly twisty thriller that will make you wonder how well you really know your online friends' Irish Times `I tore through Lottie Moggach's Kiss Me First. Gripping, quirky, twisty - quite a ride.' Harriet Lane, author of Alys Always Dazzl
