Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll

Book Synopsis(via Goodreads):


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 fiancĂ©, 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 Aliveexplores 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?

***Many thanks to Net Galley and Simon & Schuster for the advanced reader's copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review.***

This insomniac's opinion: 

This novel has the dark, moody atmosphere that seems to be trendy in literature these days. But, as entertaining as it was, left me feeling hollow and full of unresolved questions. Don't get me wrong, it was deeply engrossing and full of twists and turns. I just never quite connected with Ani and some of the twists just left me a bit cold. 

Worth staying up all night to read?

It IS a very compelling read. 


3 stars.
