An Anonymous Girl by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen caught my eye while I was browsing new books to buy. I have already read The Wife Between Us that was co-written by the authors so I knew it would be good. While I found An Anonymous Girl really interesting and unique, there was something that I didn’t quite love about it. Overall, however, I 100% recommend this book to anyone who likes a good thriller.
Synopsis: An Anonymous Girl by Greer Hendricks
“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.”Goodreads
What I Loved
I’ve read a lot of books in this genre and there are a lot of repeating themes of cults, evil children and kidnaped women. An Anonymous Girl by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen is a breath of fresh air! It is completely different from anything I’ve ever read. I also loved that the protagonists were two strong women. It was fascinating to see them unravel and develop throughout the story. The pace of the book was also super satisfying, it was hard to find a good time to put it down. There were twists and new reveals with every chapter. It definitely kept me guessing.
What I Didn’t Love
It is hard for me to pinpoint exactly what I didn’t love. I only finished it yesterday and I’ve been trying to figure out what my problem with the book was, but I’m still drawing a blank. Maybe it was my mood at the time of reading, but despite being interested in what was happening, a few times I got a little frustrated. Maybe there was just a little too much back and forth of ‘is he dangerous or isn’t he?’ Overall I gave the book four stars out of five.
An Anonymous Girl by Greer Hendricks
An Anonymous Girl by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen was a great book with a lot of twists. The unique plot and the pace of the book was just up my alley. While there was something about the book that didn’t make me love it, I would definitely still recommend it to others. I am also hoping to read more books by both Greer Hendricks, Sarah Pekkanen and of course, books written by them both!
