Häftad,  Engelska, 2018-04-05


Lottie Moggach's thrilling Kiss Me First is the inspiration for the major Channel 4 and Netflix TV series from the co-author of Skins, Bryan Elsey. Shortlisted for the Guardian First Book Award. Teenage identity in the digital age is explored in this innovative, unsettling and powerful coming-of-age story about a life lived online. Sheltered and obsessive, Leila spends more time online than in the real world. So she seems like the ideal person to take over the virtual identity of the vivacious and fragile Tess, who wants to disappear. 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 . . .
