KISS ME FIRST is Lottie Moggach’s debut novel. It tells the story of Tess, who wants to commit suicide without her family knowing. She meets Leila online, who agrees to adopt Tess’ identity to help convince her family that she is still alive and happy on the other side of the world. Francesca Main, who acquired the book for Picador, described the book as “really gripping, brilliant and clever”.
