Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll

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.

This book surprised me.  It wasn't anything about what I thought it was going to be about.  I was expecting some kind of deep, dark psychological thriller.  I didn't really get that from this book.  Instead, it was an interesting insider perspective of surviving a school shooting and the publicity that it spurs even many years later.

Tiffani FaNelli came from the wrong side of town.  Her mother gets her into the elite Bradley School hoping to clean up her image.  However, she suffers terrible humiliation at the hands of the popular boys.  She becomes friends with a boy who will eventually become one of the school shooters.  Years later, she has put the past behind her and carefully built a life of which anyone would be envious.  She is desperate for this image to show in the documentary that is being made about the Bradley Shooting since she will be at the center of the interviews.

This book was so different than what I was expecting.  I ended up hanging on to every word wondering what was going to happen next.  The audiobook was excellent.  I would highly recommend it.
