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.
The question remains: will breaking her silence destroy all that she has worked for—or, will it at long last, set Ani free?
This book is about a young woman with a difficult past. Every aspect of her life seems to revolve around the trauma when she was betrayed by her teenage friends.
As an adult, she is desperate to “reinvent herself.” To distance and insulate herself from these events.
She thought she had it all. The glamorous job. The pedigreed fiance. The expensive wardrobe.
But none of that could cover the pain of what she endured when she was too young to understand the consequences.
What is rape? If you are the only girl there and get drunk with the boys, is it rape? Does it matter what you were wearing? Or whether you liked one of the boys?
This story is a dark and twisted journey. Sometimes it is hard to read the words.
Written from the alternating viewpoints of both the present and the past, you will think you are reading about one horrible event. When actually you are reading about two.
I think it is important to remember that most tragedies unfold on a seemingly ordinary day. Until it isn’t.
