An Anonymous Girl

Unknown-11.jpeg

Seeking women ages 18–32 to participate in a study on ethics and morality. Generous compensation. Anonymity guaranteed.

When Jessica Farris signs up for a psychology study conducted by the mysterious Dr. Shields, she thinks all she’ll have to do is answer a few questions, collect her money, and leave.

Question #1: Could you tell a lie without feeling guilt?

But as the questions grow more and more intense and invasive and the sessions become outings where Jess is told what to wear and how to act, she begins to feel as though Dr. Shields may know what she’s thinking…and what she’s hiding.

Question #2: Have you ever deeply hurt someone you care about?

As Jess’s paranoia grows, it becomes clear that she can no longer trust what in her life is real, and what is one of Dr. Shields’ manipulative experiments. Caught in a web of deceit and jealousy, Jess quickly learns that some obsessions can be deadly.

Question #3: Should a punishment always fit the crime?

From the authors of the blockbuster bestseller The Wife Between Us comes an electrifying new novel about doubt, passion, and just how much you can trust someone.

Original. Addicting. Consuming.

Those are the three words that first pop into my mind when I think about AN ANONYMOUS GIRL. I went in completely blind, with only the information from a friend that she loved it. To be honest when friends tell me they loved a book I go in with low expectations. Not because I don’t trust their taste in books, because I totally do, but because I don’t want to go in with my expectations too high and end up let down. That was not the case with this one. I LOVED IT. I read it in less that 24 hours total and when I finished I wanted more.

Jessica Farris signs up for a psychology study conducted by Dr. Shield. Questions about morality. She expected to do her part and collect her money. But when Dr. Shields finds something in her that she doesn’t expect, she asks Jessica for more time to divulge in her life in the name of research.

This review won’t be long. I don’t want to give too much information about this one out because going in blind was one of the best parts of my reading experience. From the minute I picked the book up to the minute I closed it I was all in. I’m pretty good at predicting where a story is going but this one left me clueless. I was texting my friend trying to squeeze information out of her because I was dying to know what was going on. For that alone, and a couple of “HOLY S**T” moments I couldn’t give this book anything but 5 STARS.

Do yourself a favor and go snag this one! You won’t be disappointed.

5/5 STARS
