Alice Hare leaves England for New York to meet a grandmother and work out what to do with herself as a recent graduate. Instead she discovers a Japanese writer called Mizuko Himura who uses her own life in her fiction. Alice becomes increasingly obsessed with Mizuko’s online persona and the strange similarities she perceives between them. She quickly loses her grip on reality as she engineers a “chance” encounter with Mizuko and forges a suffocating friendship, intent on making herself part of Mizuko’s life. When Alice is eventually shut out by Mizuko, she uses the only tool at her disposal, writing herself back into Mizuko’s story.
