Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll

Everyone wants to be Ani FaNelli.  She works on a glamorous New York magazine and lives the life of a New York professional.  She is engaged to be married to a man who comes from old money and who works on Wall Street.  Her clothes are exquisite.  She has come far from the days when she was Tiffani LaNelli, a scholarship student at a prestigious school that was her ticket out of a middle class world to the one she envied and was determined to be a part of.  Surely she is the luckiest girl alive.

But Ani has a secret most people have no idea of.  Her time at that prestigious school included a horrific event that changed lives and marred its reputation.  Ani was right in the middle of it and now a television producer is making a documentary about it and wants Ani to be a part of it.  She is torn.  Should she just continue as she is, envied by others who don't know anything about her true self or should she take the chance at vindication and validation the documentary offers?

Jessica Knoll has written a chilling novel.  Ani is that perfect girl that most women would give anything to be.  The fact that she has to deny everything about herself in order to be that perfect woman is a trade off that she has been willing to make but that now tugs at her more and more insistently.  Knoll has worked as an editor at top women's magazines herself and knows the subject she writes about.  This book is recommended for thriller readers.
