'The first thriller to truly tackle a life lived online' Harper's Bazaar
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 . . .
Kiss Me First is a powerful thriller and now the inspiration for a major TV series which will air on Channel 4 and Netflix. An innovative, unsettling and moving coming-of-age story.
Handpicked by Picador editors and readers, these books will suck you into their worlds and won't let go till you've finished.
