Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll Book Summary
*SOON TO BE A NETFLIX MOTION PICTURE STARRING MILA KUNIS*
Fans of Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train will thrill at this “perfect page-turner” (People)—that Reese Witherspoon describes as “one of those reads you just can’t put down!” This instant New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling novel follows an unforgettable young woman striving to create the perfect life—until a violent incident from her past threatens to unravel everything and expose her most shocking secret.
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?
Luckiest Girl Alive (Jessica Knoll) Book Reviews
Worst book everSlow to start. Picked it up and started it on three separate occasions only to stop reading it. Finally told myself to stick with it. What a waste of time. Don't waste yours..Tappy RScore: 1/5
ConfusefThis book wasn’t at all what I thought it would be about based on the synopsis and first few pages. As a thriller, it was a bit of a let down, and the plot was played out by the middle of the novel. It was kind of a one-trick pony read. I stuck it out all the way to the disappointingly predictable ending and I am still confused about the rave reviews. Can’t relate..CrypticcalScore: 3/5
Amazing read.An amazing book. Real and raw, I couldn't put it down. Filled with darkness with touches of whim and humor, it tickled my senses. Highly recommended..RobynleoScore: 5/5
Great book!Can't wait until she writes another one..AddictedtofitbitScore: 5/5
YesRead it. Absolute best book of the year. Never saw it coming..Jillian DiScore: 5/5
The ending was disappointingThere was no climax. Or if there was, I missed it. I kept waiting for some big twist at the end. Why was it such a big deal that he threw the picture away? I get that she was looking for an excuse to get out of marriage but like I said, there was literally no climax. Build up for nothing..Xo_emily_xo_1027_rockScore: 3/5
Luckiest Girl AliveExcellent book! Complex and intriguing multiple story lines that are cleverly tied together. Creative author who paints the story as vividly as Stephen King with just the right mix of humor and sarcasm. Well done..HalsterxScore: 5/5
EhA solid just okay. Started off great and interesting. I love reading time-hop fiction and this one did fairly well with that. The story went flat immediately after the big climax; the main character grew annoying. The rest was uneventful and predictable. The ending was a disappointment..KSK5961Score: 3/5
This is no Gone GirlDon't be fooled by comparisons to Gone Girl, this book doesn't even come close. It wasn't a terrible book, but I did feel like there was a lot of build up that only led to a disappointing ending. Not sure if I would recommend it..KatCal1193Score: 3/5
Fantastic!!!Best I’ve read in a while!.Lovebug2001starScore: 5/5
Excellent detailsThis was a very well-written book. You can feel the conflict of Ani. You can see how she is struggling with her 14-year old self, and the woman she is today. I really enjoyed reading this book, but the ending was slightly anticlimactic for me. For as detailed as everything else in the book was, the ending fell a little flat - like being dropped off a cliff. I would highly consider reading more from this author. I enjoyed her style!.AyamiHiroshigeScore: 4/5
DisappointingVery boring. Kept waiting and waiting for something to happen, but nothing ever did. Nothing compared to Gone Girl or The Girl on The Train. Super disappointing..A beaversScore: 1/5
Don't waste your timeNever had I wished for the main character to get hit by a bus I until I read this. A stupid, annoying, white trash girl puts herself in a dangerous situation, causes death and distraction, snags a rich guy and then gives it all up to return to her white trash life. Don't waste your time or money..Valm11111Score: 1/5

Luckiest Girl AliveSo tired of books with unsympathetic, agendized characters. Formulaic, herd-like mentality. Couldn’t even make past a quarter of the book. Not original..Ces324455Score: 1/5
Thank youI simply love a book so well done. It wasn’t predictable, you cannot guess the ending, you wax and wane on how you feel about TifAni and not with light emotion. Living in the area where a huge portion of the book was set was really interesting but that’s just a personal note..LordGigantScore: 5/5

More like BORDest Girl Alive...I bought this e-book, and got 16% of the way through it. I’m bailing now. Author takes a long time to get nowhere.. Her style of writing is just not for me. Seemed very juvenile, and was not engaging.. I was determined to finish it because I paid $13 for it, but I just cant take it anymore..Beans-0Score: 1/5

Interesting - But NO Gone GirlWhile it held my attention, I think it did so in hopes for an exciting twist or new development. The ending left too many open questions and many of the characters didn't really have a purpose to the story..RiderkpScore: 3/5
AMAZING!!!I LOVED this book. Page turner would be an understatement. The characters captivate you from the very beginning and keep you on the edge of your seat to the very end. I finished this book in under 2 days... I couldn't put it down!.RkpetersScore: 5/5
Finally, an anti-heroineI loved this book. I couldn't put it down. Knoll knows how to intrigue and hook a reader, so that you can't stop thinking about the character and story. I loved that she created a flawed heroine who is so authentic and real!.OnepinkfuzzyScore: 5/5
Badly AdvertisedDo NOT listen to the description comparing this to Gone Girl and Girl on the Train.. there are so similarities. I kept reading expecting there to be a shocking twist or even just a plain ole plot twist.. it never came. This is NOT a thriller or a mystery novel. It’s about a girl trying to deal with her past..Srb902Score: 1/5

EhThough this book had an okay storyline, I felt the author rambled on quite a bit and confused you by jumping through too many past references all at once. I lost interest towards the end. I also felt that the main character was not as like-able as I would of hoped..SHARKA10Score: 3/5

Good bookA very interesting read! I was slightly disappointed in the ending, almost seems like it needs a sequel. I wouldn't compare it to Gone Girl, it's a different book in it's own way. I enjoyed it, and have recommended it to friends..Addie'smomScore: 4/5
An enjoyable frivolous taleI personally found this to be a great book with lots of twists and turns. It is certainly no war and peace, but it kept me entertained throughout which is why I read..Lauryn ArmstrongScore: 4/5

Publishers Weekly review gives the Plot twist away!Careful when reading the Publisher Weekly Review. I’m so glad that I read this book before reading the review on this site that gives the plot twist away!! This site may want to remove the “documentary” part out of the review. On a happier note, really enjoyed the book. Love how it hit many genres through the book. Didn’t see the twist coming..BrandslynScore: 4/5
DisappointedI loved until the last chapter. I'm totally disappointed now... Could have been great..Jbizzy29Score: 2/5
OkPretty overhyped. It got a few things right - the awkwardness of high school and the new found faux-confidence of being a professional in her mid-to-late twenties, but the character lacked consistency. The supporting characters lacked depth. I feel like I was promised more in terms of mystery, and really it was just that part of the story of was withheld..Jbell3Score: 3/5
A story that goes nowhereI was really disappointed in this book. The story always seemed to be leading to something but apparently that something was basically nothing. The main character is selfish and never overcomes anything. She doesn't seem to grow at all. She just eventually decides to accept her white trash upbringing but it's not very convincing either..KellybanikScore: 2/5
DisappointingDon't be fooled by the reviews. Although this is an ok read, it does not have the intrigue of Gone Girl and Girl on the Train..Lake divaScore: 2/5
Good reading, but missing the grand The EndThe story is great, so much potential on what is to come next, however there is no wow factor at the end, like the idea went to a different direction. Overall entertaining reading..Wine savvyScore: 3/5

This is NOT a thriller or a mystery!!!!This book should not be compared to Gone Girl, or any others in that genre. There was no suspense, no twists, no surprises, and the ending was quite honestly, a let down. I kept waiting for a crazy twist... And turned the last page in the book very disappointed. One should look at this book more as a very dark memoir of a woman who was once the victim of a gang rape from schoolmates. This is NOT the thriller it is made out to be! Not on my recommended reading list!.ILUVJMAYERScore: 2/5

A well-crafted, shocking story. Definitely worth buying!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!.Privateperson2Score: 5/5
Creepy, creepy, creepyQuite the page-turner. A fascinating glimpse into the sociopathic brain..AlbertaRoseScore: 4/5
Couldn't put it down....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!.Tannas23Score: 5/5
