The lowdown from Goodreads

Publication Date January 8, 2019

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.

An Anonymous Girl by Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen Book Review

You hop into a psychological study for some cash. It’ll be over quickly, right? Answer some questions, grab the cash & move on. Simple & carefree way to make some cash, huh? NOPE.

A Wild, Psychological Thriller

This book is a wild ride. No doubt about that. I instantly connect with the main character, Jess. She’s a hard worker, a hustler in the best way, a daughter who tries to right by her family & is looking to advance her financial situation. Honestly, she’s got guts taking someone’s place in this research study. Instantly, I know she is a force to be reckoned with.

Fatal Attraction Vibes with a Cat & Mouse Game

I will not give any spoilers friends. While the blurb describes Dr. Shields as manipulative, that’s the understatement of the year. This woman is slick, intelligent & I spent the majority of the book trying to figure out her angle.

Hendricks & Pekkanen write a psychological thriller that many readers will love. For me, the narrative moves a bit slow. I found myself trying to just get to the ending. Luckily, I really connected with Jess, so her character kept me engaged.

THE VERDICT

I am Into This book. Let it be noted I enjoy the writing style of Hendricks & Pekannen enough I will pick up any of their books. Read An Anonymous Girl if you’re looking for a dark, twisted tale with cat & mouse type vibes.

Sarah Pekkanen  Sarah is the mother of three boys, which explains why she wrote part of her novel at Chuck E. Cheese. Seriously. Sarah penned her first book, Miscellaneous Tales and Poems, at the age of 10. When publishers failed to jump upon this literary masterpiece (hey, all the poems rhymed!) Sarah followed up by sending them a sternly-worded letter on Raggedy Ann stationery. Sarah still has that letter, and carries it to New York every time she has meetings with her publisher, as a reminder that dreams do come true. Please visit www.sarahpekkanen.com
