My brilliant friend Lotte Worth has written an amazing book called The Perfect Suicide.
I have been meaning to write about this since I first read it a little while ago – as I totally loved this book. It is dark, clever and beautiful. I had been putting it off as I am hoping to conduct a little mini interview here with the author herself – but I could wait no longer, so you can now read the book first and look forward to the interview.
The Perfect Suicide tells the story of Emma, a girl who is struggling to fit in at her new university in the aftermath of a family tragedy. The only person who seems to understand her is her new flatmate Pete - who is sympathetic and attractive, and seems so much more grown up than the other students. Pete is a mysterious character, but we are given an insight into his life in the form of flashbacks to his childhood.
I know Lotte (also known as Charlotte) because we share our lovely literary agent, Caroline Hardman of Hardman and Swainson.
