***AN INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES AND USA TODAY BESTSELLER***
Fans of Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train will thrill at “the perfect page-turner to start your summer” (People, Book of the Week): Luckiest Girl Alive—described by Reese Witherspoon as “one of those reads you just can’t put down!”
“Loved Gone Girl? We promise [Luckiest Girl Alive is] just as addictive.”
“Jessica Knoll introduces you to your new best frenemy, and you’re going to love it. . . .Destined to become one of the summer’s most gripping reads.”
“With the cunning and verve of Gillian Flynn but an intensity all its own, Luckiest Girl Alive is a debut you won’t want to miss.”
—Megan Abbott, author of Dare Me and The Fever
“Luckiest Girl Alive is Gone Girl meets Cosmo meets Sex and the City. . . . Knoll hits it out of the park.”
—Fort Worth Star-Telegram
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?

How does this compare?
It was decent: I finished it in two days. I don't get why this is being compared to Gone Girl or The Girl on the Train. They were both more psychological thrillers, while this was predictable at best. The ending was very poor and it just felt like it dropped off quickly.
Just a summer read
It was a decent summer read. I have to admit I had just finished The Girl on The Train before reading this, so I was looking for something thrilling like that. It was a decent story, but definitely not thrilling. Not like the description implies. It started out strong, but just kind of went no where! Sick of writers opening up many questions in the beginning only to leave you with a Luke warm ending.
An amazing book. Real and raw, I couldn't put it down. Filled with darkness with touches of whim and humor, it tickled my senses. Highly recommended.
