Synopsis

Facetime by Winnie Salamon

Esmerelda: Stylish. Unemployed. Has a taste for psychic hotlines. Ned: Hardcore geek. Looks like garden gnome. Has a photographic memory for B-grade sci-fi dialogue. Charlotte: Esmerelda's new housemate. Takes herself too seriously, even when nude-dancing with her boyfriend. Who can blame Es for falling in love with a charming, mysterious, trash-culture-loving American she meets in an online chatroom? 'This book hits waaay too close to home. I sent a copy to my online girlfriend.:)' Stu Hefner, Studboy Magazine 'Wow! It's even better than the Internet!!!' Caffeine, Internet Tsar
