[A] huge summer read . . . one of those great stories that you can't put down! -- Reese Witherspoon * InStyle *
Luckiest Girl Alive is a brilliant character study wrapped up in a can't-put-it-down thriller. Ani FaNelli, the luckiest girl of the title, will infuriate you with her sharp edges, intrigue you with her unexpected fragility and ultimately win your heart. I lost myself in this intelligently crafted novel and can't wait to read more from Jessica Knoll. -- Diane Chamberlain
Fresh, funny, biting and shocking- Luckiest Girl Alive kept me riveted from cover to cover. I absolutely loved it. -- Lauren Weisberger, author of The Devil Wears Prada
I whipped through Luckiest Girl Alive. Razor sharp and unexpectedly thought provoking. -- Colette McBeth
With the cunning and verve of Gillian Flynn but with a febrile intensity all its own, Jessica Knoll's Luckiest Girl Alive is a debut you won't want to miss. Sly, darkly funny and chilling-to-the bone, it gets under your skin and stays there. -- Megan Abbott
The freshest new voice . . . the best book I've read in a long time. -- Jane Fallon
At turns funny, shocking, violent and heart-rending, Luckiest Girl Alive hooks its reader and doesn't let go. Jessica Knoll's twisted, twisting debut beautifully explores reinvention, retribution and redemption - and all the rawness in between. -- Miranda Beverly-Whittemore
The most compelling debut novel I've read in years! Luckiest Girl Alive is intriguing, surprising, and even shockingly funny at times. And Ani FaNelli is a complex, heartbreaking, and unforgettable heroine. * John Searles *
Luckiest Girl Alive is a wickedly well-plotted page-turner that lifts back the veil of Ani FaNelli's glamour and privilege to tread amongst the sharp emotional thorns lying beneath. Knoll's novel dazzles with humor, cultural insight, and thematic heft. -- Alissa Nutting, author of Tampa
Loved Gone Girl? We promise [Luckiest Girl Alive is] just as addictive * Good Housekeeping *
At times, it's laugh-out-loud witty; at other times, it's very moving. We do not want to give any spoilers away because this is one of those books that the less you know about - the more enjoyable it is. But, definitely, definitely read it. * Stylist, 'Why You Need To Read Luckiest Girl Alive: 2015's Word-of-Mouth Breakout Book' *
A knockout debut novel . . . completely enthralling . . . devilishly dark and fun * Publishers Weekly *
When Ani FaNelli wants something, she gets it: the job, the body, the man. What starts as a Mean Girls-seeming story line transforms into something so dark, so plot-twistingly intense that...well, actually, no spoilers here * Marie Claire *
As this multi-layered thriller develops, the dark shadows from her traumatic adolescence are laid bare, and a brooding sense of impending horror begins to ooze through this narrative. Add a cracker of a plot revelation half way through, and it becomes clear that this classy debut will appeal to those who like thrillers with sharp edges. * Sunday Mirror, book of the week *
A dark and compelling coming-of-age story with a distinctive voice that pulls you in from the first page and keeps you hooked until the last. -- Victoria Walters, author of The Second Love of My Life
"[Ani FaNelli is] a cross between Sex and the City's Carrie Bradshaw and Gone Girl's Amy Dunne. . . . Knoll's debut truly delivers and will keep readers engaged until the end * Library Journal *
The perfect page-turner to start your summer. * People (Book of the Week) *
Dark, twisty . . . razor-sharp writing . . . propulsive prose . . . [The] reveal is a real doozy--a legitimately shocking, completely unputdownable sequence that unfolds like a slow-motion horror film. It instantly elevates Luckiest Girl . . . and that momentum keeps going until its final pages. * Entertainment Weekly *
The perfect kind of summer read: Nail-bitingly addictive, equal parts funny and twisted, and full of 'I never saw THAT coming' moments. * Glamour *
Luckiest Girl Alive is crime fiction at its best . . . . Jessica Knoll is a writer to keep an eye on, especially after being compared to Gillian Flynn by Megan Abbott. . . . However, I have found enough personality in Knoll's debut novel to let her stand on her own, rather than label her 'the next Gillian Flynn.' . . . Luckiest Girl Alive is the ultimate critical companion to millennial femininity. * Los Angeles Review of Books *
[Readers] probably won't leave Luckiest Girl Alive wishing they had a friend just like TifAni, but . . . if they liked Gone Girl, they'll be thrilled to see another woman who's allowed to be smart and mean, vulnerable and detestable. * *
A stonker of a book. * The Sun *
For anyone hankering after their next fix of twisty, turny thriller-lit. * Prima *
