Book of the Week / 13

**includes talk about suicide – if you are triggered by this please do not read**
This book wasn’t at all what I was expecting it to be. I feel like the blurb didn’t match what the book was really about, and what its main story was. Anyway, I still enjoyed it quite thoroughly!
It is about a girl called Leila, that believes everyone should have their own opinion on things, and anyone should be able to do what they want to do with their body, and their life.
12 / KISS ME FIRST by Lottie Moggach
Leila was quite sheltered, growing up with not many friends, and being raised by her single Mother. Leila struggled to connect with people in real life – so she turned to the internet, to specifically a website/forum called ‘RedPill’. RedPill is a chat forum for ethical debate. Leila’s skills very much impressed the owner of the site, he got in contact with her and wanted to set a date to meet up. Leila was absolutely thrilled about this. When they met up, he asked if Leila would like to be apart of a project called ‘Project Tess’. Tess is someone that Leila has never met in real life before. Tess is a beautiful, witty and damaged girl, and she wants to commit suicide.
The whole project is for Leila to learn every single little thing she can about Tess, so she can pretend to be her after Tess is gone, for only a little while, until contact slowly fades out and stops. Leila is honored to be a part of this, and really wants to help Tess. She believes that everyone has a right to do something if they want to, including killing themselves. She thought it was nice that Tess didn’t want to break the hearts of her family, buy dying in a very private way.
This was a pretty cool idea for a book, and it wasn’t what I was expecting at all. There was a very twists and turns which I always enjoy. I wasn’t a fan of the main character – Leila, but I was interested in what she was up to next. I think the chapters in the book were way too long for me – I like shorter chapters so I can stop reading when I need to, I am someone that has to read the whole chapter – I can’t just stop reading in the middle of a chapter!
This book was about a suicide cult, identity theft & psychopaths, I rate this book a:
This wasn’t one of my favourites, but it was enjoyable anyway. The genre of this one would be under fiction, mystery, thriller, suspense, contemporary and adult.
Thanks for reading my 12th review, I will speak to you soon in the next one!
