HER PERFECT LIFE IS A PERFECT LIE.
As a teenager at the prestigious Bradley School, Ani FaNelli endured a shocking, public humiliation that left her desperate to reinvent herself. Now, with a glamorous job, expensive wardrobe, and handsome blue blood fiancé, she’s this close to living the perfect life she’s worked so hard to achieve.
But Ani has a secret.
There’s something else buried in her past that still haunts her, something private and painful that threatens to bubble to the surface and destroy everything.
With a singular voice and twists you won’t see coming, Luckiest Girl Alive explores the unbearable pressure that so many women feel to “have it all” and introduces a heroine whose sharp edges and cutthroat ambition have been protecting a scandalous truth, and a heart that's bigger than it first appears.
The question remains: will breaking her silence destroy all that she has worked for—or, will it at long last, set Ani free?
I’m back with yet another book review. Yes, I know that I have been doing a ton of reviews lately, but I also have a catch up life post that is coming later this week. As you can tell today’s post is a review on Jessica Knoll’s Luckiest Girl Alive. I had wanted to read this after I had read The Favorite Sister last year, but got distracted by other books. If you want to read my review of that book you can do so here.
I can honestly tell you that I liked Luckiest Girl Alive a bit more than I liked The Favorite Sister. I found this book very relatable to what has been happening in today’s society in the last few years as far as school shootings go. I also thought that Jessica Knoll painted a good picture on what is expected from women in today’s society. I’ll try not to spoil the ending, but I’m glad that Ani decided to be stronger and stand up for herself in the end even though doing the right thing and telling the truth meant disappointing her mother and losing some things that she thought that she wanted.
I would recommend this book to someone who has read The Favorite Sister, but wasn’t impressed by it. Someone who loves best sellers and someone who likes thrillers/ mysteries and suspenseful novels without them being murderous and scary. I will be back soon with a more real life post and a catch up on 2020 so far 🙂
