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? Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Linda C | 8/7/2017

    " Pity is all I felt throughout this book. Kinda of ruined it for me. There was no redeeming characteristics about the main character. She was "disgusting" throughout and never seemed to learn anything from her mistakes. Also I had trouble following in what time frame I was listening. Basically, I didn't really like the book at all. Probably won't write Jessica Knoll for future works, but this one didn't do it for me. "

    " Can you hate a character and still pity them? That is the only way I can describe my feelings for the main character. The book as a whole ~ twisted! "
