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. 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. 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.

An Anonymous Girl – Review

The premise of this book is so intriguing…

I was absolutely blown away by The Wife Between Us. It made it to my Top Ten of 2018 reads, and it was my first read of 2018. I loved it. Naturally, I had the same expectations for An Anonymous Girl. 

It took me a while to get into it, I’m not sure why. Maybe just the holidays and everything going on all at once. I found it difficult to sit down and read this extremely hyped book. Once I got started though, it was all downhill, or uphill, from there.

Hendricks and Pekkanen wrote a twisted tale, one where you question everything down to the smallest detail. One thing I loved about this book was the alternating perspectives, but even more so how the authors didn’t tell you who was who until after you read the first paragraph of the new chapter. It had me hooked so bad! It was unique to see that, and it gave the book an even more compelling look.

There is one thing that made the book fall a little flat for me: the absence of the ‘wtf’ moment. The Wife Between Us had two that stuck out to me, even 365 days later. In An Anonymous Girl, I saw one of the twists coming, but even then, there was no ‘what the fuck did I just read’ reaction. The story is extremely well written and captivating to the point of losing track of what time it is.

I’d definitely recommend this book to those who need a little help figuring out the truth. Or if you just want a little manipulation with your therapy sessions.
