It’s been a very long time since I literally could not put a book down. This book took my mind away and I was so intrigued by the story I couldn’t stop reading.  

The blurb reads: ‘Ani Fanelli has the perfect life. But behind her sharp edges and meticulously crafted facade lies the darkest of her pasts…’

“I absolutely loved it” – Lauren Weisberger Author of the Devil Wears Prada

“Definitely, definitely read it’ – Stylist

I have heard very good things about the book and it dominated the shelves when I went to buy it. It was clear in the charts and the front cover drew me in. (I’m one of those people who can spend hours in Waterstones and not be able to choose).

The book revolves around one girl and her life. It’s clear from the very beginning that she is career driven, very conscious of her weight and appearance and well, damaged.

You’re kept in the dark about what happened to her until around the middle of the book. The detail and description that Jessica Knoll went to made my stomach turn, you have a deep sense of pity and care for Ani, the main character.

The ending however, it could of been better. I think there’s definitely room for a follow up. It wasn’t as blunt as the Fault in the Stars ending, however I craved more information.

I hope you enjoyed the second post of the series.
