Luckiest Girl Alive

A Novel

Luckiest Girl Alive

The New York Times and USA TODAY bestseller that Reese Witherspoon described as “one of those reads you just can’t put down,” explores the unbearable pressure that so many women feel to “have it all” and how one young woman uses her sharp edges and cutthroat ambition to hide a scandalous truth.

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. The question remains: will breaking her silence destroy all that she has worked for or will it—at long last—set Ani free?

With a singular voice and twists you won’t see coming, Luckiest Girl Alive is “nail-bitingly addictive…equal parts funny and twisted” (Glamour) and proves that the perfect life is often a perfect lie.
