From Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen, the authors of the top ten bestseller The Wife Between Us, comes An Anonymous Girl – an electrifying novel about doubt, passion and deadly obsession . . .
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 is real in her life, and what is one of Dr Shields’s manipulative experiments. Caught in a web of deceit and jealousy, Jess quickly learns that some obsessions can be deadly.
HERE ARE MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW
When Jessica over hears a conversation about a psychology study on ethics and morality being carried out that pays $500 for a answering a few questions she jumps at the chance. If something appears too good to be true though it normally means that it is. Jessica soon discovers that the questions are live on the screen and adapted to delve deeper into her mind for full confessional answers to her darkest secrets. It isn’t long before the participants are weaned down to just Jessica by Dr. Shields.
I loved this story that not only played with Jessica’s mind but mine too as the line between what was real life and part of the trial blurred. Alarm bells were ringing with me at how easy it is influence someone else in the right setting. Everything is questioned but is it paranoia or reality that will win through?
Some situations can be controlled but fate is always there to play a hand too. It is that which make the story even more interesting and complicated. Who do you trust and who is telling the truth? A strange and compelling story that seeks the truth yet festers in deception, lies and secrets. When you think you have it worked out it takes a new direction.
I had got the end all wrong in my mind but really liked how it all came together clever story seamlessly woven between to authors. An unusual story which I really enjoyed.
