Through controlled, methodical actions and laser like focus Ani FaNelli has worked hard to put the tragedies of her past behind her and become the kind of women that others envy. She is engaged to a handsome, wealthy, blue-blood that gives her instant credibility and she is on a career path that will take her far up the publishing industry ladder. But no matter how far she has come, Ani will always be the "TifAni" that survived a horrific event and the humiliating aftermath all those years ago at the prestigious Bradley School. As the anniversary approaches Ani has agreed to tell her side of the story in a documentary that will bring all of the pain to the surface. But will it be worth it? Will Ani be able to return to her perfect life once all has been revealed? And does she even want to return to that life?
Luckiest Girl Alive is one of those books that come out of nowhere and knock you on your ass. Through the first part of the book I had a hard time even liking Ani. She came across as this superficial bitch who was doing everything possible to climb her way to the top. It isn't until about halfway through the book that we start to find out what happened to Ani in the past and and how it shaped the woman she is today. Let me tell you it was brutal and would have likely destroyed just about any other woman. Then - just when you think you know everything that happened you get sucker-punched with an event of epic proportions. I couldn't tear myself away from the book until it was over. The descriptions are graphic and the emotions will tear you up, but man you will be glad that you read this book.
Bottom line - Luckiest Girl Alive is getting a lot of media buzz and rightfully so. This is the book that everybody will be reading and talking about this summer. Grab a copy and see what everybody is talking about for yourself!

I am an avid reader who loves to read and will read anything put in front of me. I started this blog long before Goodreads
I have been tangled in a web of books for many, many years. I created this blog before Goodreads was around to keep track of the books I have read. Since it's inception I have reviewed almost 1,000 books.
