The story stayed in my mind every moment, just whispering to me and making me a tiny bit crazy. It’s a psychological thriller in every way!
As with the author duo’s previous bestselling novel, The Wife Between Us, it’s better if you don’t know about the plot. Go into the book blind.
I appreciated that An Anonymous Girl was pretty clean. It doesn’t get its fireworks from excessive profanity or detailed sex scenes.
Throughout the chapters, it’s impossible not to question your own beliefs and morality when thinking about these characters. I found myself trying to align with one character, then another…justifying and rationalizing behaviors.
It’s tough not to pit one book against another when you go in with such high expectations. I devoured The Wife Between Us just a few days ago, and it was in the back of my mind while I read An Anonymous Girl. Happily, I found that this one was different enough to hold its own, yet contained the same type of energy and thrills. I liked The Wife a bit better, but overall this one was a winner. They did it again, folks! This pair will forever be an automatic “Submit Order” click for me.
