"The first great internet novel . . . More than just a book about an early 21st-century lifestyle . . . Lottie Moggach's mordantly well-observed debut, "Kiss Me First" . . . could be the first great novel about the way the internet has become a part of our lives, what it means, and how it has fundamentally altered the way we get along with each other . . . A gripping psychological novel." --"Daily Beast
"A young rationalist named Leila narrates Lottie Moggach's smart, absorbing debut "Kiss Me First," which explores the nature of real and virtual relationships . . "Kiss Me First" will attract readers with its up-to-the-minute Internet plot, but will keep them through its character-driven focus, psychological depth and fresh narrator. Moggach burrows into these characters' heads so thoroughly that if anyone could pull off an online impersonation, she could." --"Dallas News
"It's the story's everyday believability that makes "Kiss Me First "so chilling . . . As Leila becomes more and more fixated on her Internet persona, Moggach sucks us into the rabbit hole of her dangerous obsession with deftly timed twists and memorable characters." --"Entertainment Weekly," A-
"As Moggach's debut chillingly demonstrates, the virtual world is scant protection from messy, utterly human emotions." --"People"
"Moggach's debut draws the reader into a . . . bizarre game of chance and deceit. . . . Moggach has drawn a young woman who is convincingly naive in the ways of the world and incapable of making good decisions. The story crackles with tension . . . A sexy psychological thriller." --"Kirkus"
"Moggach's impressive debut, a gripping psychological thriller, is all the more disturbing for its plausibility. . . . 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." --"Publishers Weekly" (starred review)
