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?
I wasn’t sure what to expect with this book because I’ve seen so many mixed reviews. Plus all the blurbs say that it’s funny and shocking so I was completely open to anything with this book. In the end, I was both pleasantly surprised with Luckiest Girl Alive and a little disappointed.
I thought Ani was a really interesting character but I think the author tried a little too hard to create her. She seemed very planned out. In fact, I thought the whole plot seemed very planned. I didn’t hate that but I noticed it.
I went back and forth on this book. Some parts really caught my attention and at times I was a little bored.
I wasn’t completely engaged in this book but it was a nice, quick read. I did refrain from being my normal critical reader self while reading this book because I could tell right from the being, if I wanted to like this book at all, I couldn’t be critical.
Overall, this was a quick read and I did enjoy most of the first half of the book but I did lose some interest towards the end. I would recommend this book if you’re not a critical reader and you’re just looking for an interesting new book to read. If you are critical, I think this book could go either way for you.
I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review
