    Ke Payne(Author)
Is it possible to fall in love with someone you've never met? Imogen Summers thinks so because it's happened to her.
Immy is a normal eighteen-year-old, with a normal life, a normal family, and a normal boyfriend. But when she finds herself falling for a girl on an Internet message board, a girl she knows only as the mysterious Fickle, her so-called normal life is suddenly turned on its head.
As her relationship with Fickle develops into more than just friendship, Immy finds another message board friend, the sweet and lovely Freddie, the perfect person to confide in. But can Freddie stay out of it when she starts to fall for Immy herself? Things are about to get complicated...

KE Payne was born in Bath, the English city, not the tub, and after leaving school she worked for the British government for fifteen years, which probably sounds a lot more exciting than it really was. Fed up with spending her days moving paperwork around her desk and making models of the Taj Mahal out of paperclips, she packed it all in to go to university in Bristol and graduated as a mature student in 2006 with a degree in linguistics and history. After graduating, she worked at a university in the Midlands for a while, again moving all that paperwork around, before finally leaving to embark on her dream career as a writer. She moved to the idyllic English countryside in 2007 where she now lives and works happily surrounded by dogs and guinea pigs.

Review Text

  • By Mrs. V.E. on 15 February 2012

    I've red ** and would like to tell how truly GOOD it is!It is very well written, it's very original (I haven't read or seen before a novel written in the way KE Payne have done - namely, she used the MSN chatting dialogues as the red thread throughout the novel, I do find that brave and in my opinion this style of writing is brilliantly-original.The plot line is deep (awakes those feelings that are so very well hidden within) at times even dark, but what I find so comforting is that KE Payne did not leave the reader in that painful *darkness* instead, in a very mastery way, she takes the reader out to the's almost feels that she holds your hand and in a reassuring way tells you: "It's OK, you are not alone, and if it helps I can walk you to the daylight again!" And that is a brilliance of of the telling a story...not every writer offers you so much warms and compassion.Please READ this novel, I'd dare to promise to one & all, that it will enrich your emotional intelligence, and will help you to get in touch with your true self - it did help me, and for that I am saying a heartfelt *Thank you* for simply outstanding **!

    I eagerly anticipated the second book by author KE Payne, having thoroughly enjoyed her first publication "365 days". follows the tribulations faced by Immy as a late teen, trying to define herself.Immy is content in her relationship with one of the most popular and cool guys around, and is the envy of her friends. But something doesn't quite feel right. She joins a message board of her favourite TV show which has a large fanbase for 2 of the lesbian characters in the show. This isn't the reason Immy is a fan of the show, but after getting to know "Fickle", she starts to question herself and her own feelings for her boyfriend and Fickle.The book is excellently written and left me gripped to find out what was going to happen, urging Immy to be true to herself, but also cautious of the potential dangers of the internet and not knowing who the true person is lurking behind the MSN Screen Name. I think most people who have grown up in the era of message boards, fansites and instant messenging services will be able to relate to elements of Immy in this book.Highly recommend it and can honestly say this is one of the best books I have ever read!

  • By Guest on 13 January 2012" tells the story of 18 year old Imogen "Immy" Summers and how she finds herself attracted Fickle on a website about a show she loves.Although I don't advocate using the internet to find girl/guys/or soul mates in boards and not proper websites a lot of people are doing it and that's what Immy does. She falls head over heels for Fickle; the cant sleep, thinking about you all day kind of Fall and I could totally emphasise with that, as I'm sure a lot of other people could. Fickle has an immediate hold over Immy and she finds questioning herself and her relationship with her boyfriend of 6weeks after all Fickle's a girl and she likes boys....right? Dating a person of the opposite sex is "the right thing" to do...right?Their relationship develops quickly and she makes a lot of mistakes and is pretty much confused, and gets hurt. But when she finally finds herself its extraordinary a beautiful coming out story that clearly portrays the life of a confused 18 year old struggling with technology, love and School work as well as her family, friends and boyfriend. What's a girl to do when everything she though she knew is flipped upside down.I haven't read any of KE Payne's other work, but I will be.

    KE Payne proves again, that she connects well with the young generation. Her "youth speak" and how she seems to be able to get into the heads of women in their late teens and early twenties is refreshing. No mean feat seeing that it could quite easily go wrong or sound contrived.The storyline centres around the wonderful world of internet chatting and online dating, but also shows the not so pleasant pitfalls.As usual with KE Payne, the main characters feel real and are likable and well rounded.The book almost made me want to be 18 again.
