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?
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Knoll's novel jumps decades, flashing back to TifAni FaNelli's traumatic adolescence as she plans to meet a group of documentarians who want to know what really happened at Bradley High School. As a teenager, Ani had been raped by multiple boys at a party, then she was caught up in a Columbine-esque disaster at her high school, and assumed to have been an accomplice in the shooting since she had been friends with one of the gunmen, and he targeted the students who attacked her. Ani reexperiences guilt and anger at not having come forth to report the rapes, though her older and wiser self realizes it was out of desperation to fit in with Bradley's popular, wealthy students. These are demons she is still fighting as she prepares to marry her fiancé, Luke, in the hope that, as she freely admits, the influence of his wholesome upbringing will help her in her effort to redeem her past life. The plot is slow to unfold, but Ani's predicament is compelling. A powerful depiction of the psychological trauma of rape ­excellent for book discussions.--Grant, Sarah Copyright 2015 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "One woman's carefully orchestrated, perfect life slowly cracks to reveal a dark underbelly in Knoll's knockout debut novel. Ani FaNelli has left her Main Line suburban Philadelphia roots behind to reinvent herself as a writer for a successful New York magazine. She is now engaged to the successful, wealthy Luke. But her past threatens to come back to haunt her, in the form of a documentary about a school shooting that happened at her prestigious private high school years ago. Ani leaves New York to travel back to suburban Philadelphia to tell her side of the story. Knoll carefully unravels Ani's past, her fractured relationship with her mother, and her suffering at the hands of her fellow high school students. Flashbacks reveal the psychological and physical damage inflicted by Ani's classmates, the effects of which linger in the present. And a chance encounter with Ani's former teacher, Andrew Larson, reminds Ani of her decision to participate in the documentary and opens up a host of questions she wants to ask him about his participation in it. Yet what sets this novel apart is the author's ability to snare the reader from page one, setting the tone for a completely enthralling read as the secrets are revealed.
