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 fiancè, 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 ruin everything.
With 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 whose heart is 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?

We all have past memories that no matter what we will still remember. Bitter or sweet it was we are still part of it, we cannot deny that. This novel stabbed me straight to the heart, TifAni’s life is a one big hard. I could say she’s been such a strong girl. A life full of humiliations. Who would bare to live a life like that? This novel speaks for those who are humiliated by society, a powerful voice for everyone who are experiencing hard ways, specifically the teens. TifAni have that perfect life she always wanted, perfect job, perfect fiancè and perfect everything. But deep down an ugly past she was hiding all the way. I know it is hard to experience all of that. But one thing that TifAni made me realize is that no matter how beautiful your life is if you don’t know how to deal with your past you would succeed. The characters in the novel good specially Ani of course. She was an innocent girl in a world off monsters which we cannot deny in real life we have it also.
No because we have ugly past doesn’t mean me cannot move on and make another good detour, we all have choices but before we make another one be sure ti end up the things that has been holding you for so long. Forgiveness may cause lot time but once you have it, it’s a total success.
for me Ani’s life was very inspirational. I wouldn’t hate the bad guys she met, I know they screwed up her life but we without those happenings she won’t be the Luckiest Girl Alive.
Must read by everyone experiencing good or bad sides of the society.
Sometimes we need to close past chapters in our lives to open a new chapter. Moving on doesn’t mean you forget what happened but I means you have learned the lessons life had put you on. We don’t need a big name to cover up an ugly image all we need is to be Ani, brave as her. Before making another step be sure with it because on wrong move can make a various number.
To the parents stay connected with your children, they might be teen but still they need your guidance special now a days.
I salute Jessica Knoll for this wonderful work. A novel that will move you in every way. You really hit me so hard with this novel.
