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?

    Knoll has a way of bringing the reader in to the story to the point that I could hear the school lockers slamming shut and smell the cafeteria food. Her intense storyline and tightly credible characters felt truly real to me...I still don't know if I can ever look at mint chip ice cream ever again. "Luckiest girl alive" is a story that will bind you to that comfortable chair in your home, right to the last chapter. I am betting every person that reads this amazing story has a bit of "Ani" in them. A fantastic read!

    I kept waiting for a unexpected twist, for a great ending, and I did not get it, predictable book.

    Jessica Knoll has written a well-crafted, shocking story. The main plot is certainly creative and intense, and the author captured my attention with both her character development and the feeling of authenticity her writing conveys. All in all, a very good read, and one which may appeal to a wide audience. Definitely worth buying, in my opinion. A mild criticism: Although some of the conclusive sections might be seen as a little predicable, well, isn't life a bit like that, too? In that sense such aspects of the story seem to make it even more realistic and plausible, rather than less. Yes, I might have appreciated a final twist, but then again that would have likely been just too contrived. In retrospect, (and now that I have thought about it a bit more) the way in which this book's plot progresses and peaks is just right. A minor caution: However, please be aware that some of the themes and descriptions may upset more sensitive readers, but then again, such a strong plot line probably demanded this type of approach. The other minor caution: you will want to keep reading and reading until you finish! Seriously, this is a real page-turner! I barely slept last night...and when I did, it wasn't well. I felt compelled to keep going, to find out what happened next. I was that emotionally invested. Good work, Ms.Knoll!

    Quite the page-turner. A fascinating glimpse into the sociopathic brain.
