But even with all the facts at her fingertips, there are things that Leila can't possibly know about Tess - or herself - until it is too late . .

This is a book for anyone who's ever spent any time online, and for anyone who feels they over-engage with social media... Kiss Me First is brilliant, one of those books you read till 3am. Not only is it acutely perceptive about the online world - all of it, not just the weirder end - but Lottie writes both Tess and Leila with a skill that borders on telepathy... Kiss Me First works as a coming-of-age story, as a mystery, as a psychological thriller, as satire - and as a fantastic read. It's about women, families relationships, intimacy and love, and it's bang on the money: Moggach has taken the online world's pulse and called it perfectly' * Grazia * An outstanding first novel about a young woman who, with the internet as her ally, steers another woman towards suicide. -- Books of the Year * Observer * 'I was gripped from the first page, moved throughout, and swallowed the book whole.' Erin Kelly, author of The Poison Tree 'Hailed as this year's Gone Girl, make room in your beach bag for this' Elle 'Unputdownable' India Knight A finger-on-the-pulse take on identity as an online life replaces the real thing... A brilliant debut that boldly heads into some very dark places... but Lottie Moggach's approach - less doom and gloom and more wit and warmth - means that her two lead characters leap off the page * Marie Claire * Lottie Moggach's very modern thriller takes identity fraud to the next level... Kiss Me First is a remarkably clever novel that is gripping from start to finish -- Books of the Year * Stylist * Could this be the first coming-of-age novel for the internet generation? ... explores the dark side of friendship * Glamour * A terrific success, captivating and consuming from the outset. Leila, our unreliable but compelling narrator, casts a powerful spell... This is a novel that gets darker with each turn of the page. The plot is intelligent, thought-provoking and asks questions about a huge range of pertinent topics including identity, ethics, mental health and the dangers of living a virtual reality. It's a high-speed train of a book that will have you clinging to the arm rests for the whole suspenseful, creepy jaunt... If you want a chilling thiller that is fast-paced, contemporary, intelligent and intriguing, this book is for you... a brilliantly dark look at the dangerous powers of the internet... thought-provoking and truly thrilling * Stylist * 'Kiss Me First has deft, expert writing, a startlingly original plot, and two central characters - cerebral, sheltered, obsessive Leila and charismatic, unstable Tess - who leap off the page. This is a dark, disturbing, needle-sharp exploration of how the internet age is transforming our idea of reality and identity.' Tana French, author of In the Woods A coolly unsettling yet humane exploration of identity, on and offline -- Books of the Year * Metro * 'An exceptional debut... This really is the book that everyone will be reading.' The Bookseller 'Embraces new media with a playful vehemence laid out in a clean, crisp prose style... great panache, humour and engaging insight... However, while social media might be the framework for this novel, it is not the heart. This is the story of a socially isolated young woman, still grieving for the loss of her mother, who finds meaning, hope and perhaps love in the lives of others. Kiss Me First is a refreshing, skilfully-handled novel very much of our times' Booktrust A gripping psychological thriller about a woman who takes on someone else's identity online * Heat * Without doubt, this is one of our favourite books of the summer... dramatic and intriguing... an absolutely unputdownable page turner... Aside from the twists and turns of an entirely unpredictable story, the arresting characters are fascinating, exploring the complexities and contradictions of human beings. When your jaw doesn't drop at the dark, desperate and often horror-inducing behaviour of others, you find yourself squinting at an unpleasant re
