Description

'A great story that you can't put down!' Reese Witherspoon, starring in Big Little Lies

'Loved Gone Girl? We promise this is just as addictive.' Good Housekeeping

'Biting and shocking it kept me riveted from cover to cover. I absolutely loved it.' Lauren Weisberger, author of The Devil Wears Prada

Now a New York Times bestseller, and optioned for film by Reese Witherspoon - in conjunction with Lionsgate films.

Her perfect life is a perfect lie . . . Ani FaNelli is the woman who has it all: the glamorous job, the designer wardrobe, the handsome and rich fiancé. But behind her sharp edges and meticulously crafted facade lies the darkest of pasts . . .

When a documentary producer invites Ani to tell her side of the chilling and violent incident that took place when she was a teenager at the prestigious Bradley school, she hopes it will be an opportunity to prove how far she's turned her life around since then. She'll even let the production company film her lavish wedding, the final step in her transformation.

But as the wedding and filming converge, Ani's past threatens to come back and haunt her. And as her immaculate veneer starts to crack, she is forced to question: will breaking her silence destroy all that she has worked for - or, will it at long last, set Ani free?

Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll is an audacious, page-turning debut thriller that will appeal to fans of Gillian Flynn, Paula Hawkins and Jodi Picoult.

From Publishers Weekly

30 March 2015 – One woman's carefully orchestrated, perfect life slowly cracks to reveal a dark underbelly in Knoll's knockout debut novel. Ani FaNelli has left her Main Line suburban Philadelphia roots behind to reinvent herself as a writer for a successful New York magazine. She is now engaged to the successful, wealthy Luke. But her past threatens to come back to haunt her, in the form of a documentary about a school shooting that happened at her prestigious private high school years ago. Ani leaves New York to travel back to suburban Philadelphia to tell her side of the story. Knoll carefully unravels Ani's past, her fractured relationship with her mother, and her suffering at the hands of her fellow high school students. Flashbacks reveal the psychological and physical damage inflicted by Ani's classmates, the effects of which linger in the present. And a chance encounter with Ani's former teacher, Andrew Larson, reminds Ani of her decision to participate in the documentary and opens up a host of questions she wants to ask him about his participation in it. Yet what sets this novel apart is the author's ability to snare the reader from page one, setting the tone for a completely enthralling read as the secrets are revealed.

Customer Reviews

Exceptional

Beautifully written and very easy to read (plot notwithstanding). I liked the way the book dealt with the different time periods. Comparisons have been drawn between this and Girl on the train - but there isn't really any comparison other then they are written by articulate women. The book didn't go where I expected. Enjoyed it immensely.

An excellent read

One of the deepest characters I've had the pleasure of following in a while - beautifully written.

I was bitterly disappointed by the ending, not because it was bad, because I just wanted the story to go on and on.

I couldn't stop reading this book

Excellent. Really well-drawn characters who have depth. I truly cared about what was going to happen to Ani. I recommend this book unreservedly
