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?
When I picked this book up I had this tag line in my head “The Next Gone Girl”….. and so that one phrase shaped my whole perception of this book. That is what this book is being called and it is NOT that AT ALL. They are not even similar, the whole time I kept waiting for this character to kill her fiancé , set him up, blackmail and this book doesn’t have any of that so I am very confused why people are calling this book the next Gone Girl.
Here is the thing…. I LOVED this book, I really did…. but the WHOLE time my mind keep thinking Gone Girl, what is gonna happen…. so it clouded my enjoyment for sure. SO friends this book has NOTHING to do with Gone Girl, nor is it similar in ANY WAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now that I cleared that craziness up I really recommend this book! To me this book is The Devil Wears Prada meets mystery. What is the secret Ani is hiding, the clues unfold so slow that I devoured the book because I had to know what was going to happen! This book is full of designer duds, mystery, wedding planning, High School flash backs, hot teachers and secrets…. the perfect Summer read!!! I really enjoyed this book and would have loved it even more if I wasn’t unintentionally comparing it to another book!
