Book Review: An Anonymous Girl


An Anonymous Girl by Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen– 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?

My Rating: 5 Stars

My Thoughts: I loved the first book written by these two amazing authors, The Wife Between Us, so I was waiting anxiously for this one. I may or may not have stalked my public libraries e-book new releases for days waiting for it to show up (I totally did). I had some anxiety over whether this newest release would live up to the hype or if I’d be left disappointed that it wasn’t as good as The Wife Between Us. Oh friends, no need for any anxiety. This book was fantastic. I was afraid I would be comparing the two books the entire time I was reading this one but I honestly didn’t even think of the first book while reading this one. It’s a very unique story that stand on it’s own. 

I went into this book blind. I skimmed the blurb but didn’t read any reviews or any spoilers. That’s how you MUST go into this book. Trust me! I’m trying to be very careful about how I review this one because you need to discover all the twists and turns yourself. And there are a lot of twists and turns, shocks and OMG moments. I waffled for a good 70% of the story about who the “bad guy” was going to be. I kept flip-flopping with every chapter, which made the story all the more enjoyable for me. I thought the ending was very satisfying and made my inner mean girl smile. Definitely one not to miss if you enjoy suspense, thrillers, and mystery.
