“Quite simply has the most original, compelling and incredible concept I’ve ever come across .” Sarah Stewart, Editor.
Teva’s life seems normal: school, friends, boyfriend. But at home she hides an impossible secret. Eleven other Tevas.
Because once a year, Teva separates into two, leaving a younger version of herself stuck at the same age, in the same house… watching the new Teva live the life that she’d been living. But as her seventeenth birthday rolls around, Teva is determined not to let it happen again. She’s going to fight for her future. Even if that means fighting herself.

Congrats on getting a publisher! I like the sound of your book, I’ll be keeping an eye out 🙂
Thank you 🙂
What an intriguing concept – sounds a great read. I’ll be keeping my eye out for it.
This book is amazing but I’m still confused as to who is Eva is it a nickname for Teva or its one of the others’ name?
Hi Natash, thanks so much for your kind comments and for getting in touch, it’s always lovely to hear from readers! So Eva was the name originally given to the first child, it stays the name of the youngest version, but when the first new version comes along, Mum names her Teva ( it means ‘nature’ in hebrew apparently, I thought I’d made it up!). But THEN there are more new versisns and Teva is already at school so they have to keep the name, and that’s why all the new versions have the same name right until the end – hope that makes sense!
If you enjoyed the book, I’d be super grateful if you’d vote for me in the Edinburgh First book Award! https://www.edbookfest.co.uk/the-festival/first-book-award/vote?book=8634 Thank you xxx
Hello, just finished reading your book. I loved it!! It was the first book I read in just 2 days! Usually it takes me weeks to read books, but ”More Of Me” was interesting and exciting to read, I couldn’t take my eyes off. Just one question – so Fifteen is together with Ollie, and the new Teva (Seventeen) is together, like a couple, with Tommo? I was suprised that this book is selling in a small country as Latvia, knowing that you are from England. Anyway, thank you for the amazing book and good luck! With love, Marianna
Hello Marianna! Thanks so much for writing to me, I’m so glad you enjoyed More of Me – and really happy to hear it has made it to Latvia – it’s still being translated for lots of countries so I’m guessing you read a version in English? I have good friends in England who are Latvian – maybe they are spreading the word! Now I will answer your question but first…
*SPOILER ALERT FOR ANYONE WHO HASN’T FINISHED THE BOOK!*
Yes, Fifteen and Ollie get back together, I’m not sure if they’ll stay a couple but I think they have a chance, they’re pretty well suited. And Teva and Tommo also get together and I think those two will be okay, they’re so cute together, don’t you think?
