Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll

I have read a lot of reviews about this book, calling it the next "Gone Girl", I needed a quick read for the holiday weekend so I gave it a whirl.  The writing is really good, really sharp, and very dark.  The whole book is extremely dark, much like Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train, only darker.  You have to be able to stomach reading about some really bad stuff to be able to get through the book, but it definitely keeps you going, very well paced.  For those who are looking for more of a thrilling beach read, this is for you.  And as an aside, this book is going to be another Reese Witherspoon project so there will be lots of buzz:



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 fiancĂ©, 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?
