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?
This was the first book by this author that I’ve read, so it took me a bit to figure out the style of writing. Additionally, there was a slow start and build up to this novel, which detracted from the story a bit in the beginning, but about 1/3 of the way in, it picked up and I didn’t want to put the book down! That’s always, of course, a good thing! There were a few things that aggravated me about the main character, and with that, along with the slow-build, I rated this book a 4-star read, but I definitely recommend this one! A great thriller that twists and turns until the very end!
