Description

***NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER*** "Engrossing...Deliciously savage and wildly entertaining."--People Magazine (Book of the Week) From Jessica Knoll--author of Luckiest Girl Alive, the instant New York Times bestseller and the bestselling debut novel of 2015--comes a blisteringly paced thriller starring two sisters who join the cast of a reality TV series. One won't make it out alive. So...who did it? When five hyper-successful women agree to appear on a reality series set in New York City called Goal Diggers, the producers never expect the season will end in murder... Brett's the fan favorite. Tattooed and only twenty-seven, the meteoric success of her spin studio--and her recent engagement to her girlfriend--has made her the object of jealousy and vitriol from her castmates. Kelly, Brett's older sister and business partner, is the most recent recruit, dismissed as a hanger-on by veteran cast. The golden child growing up, she defers to Brett now--a role which requires her to protect their shocking secret. Stephanie, the first black cast member and the oldest, is a successful bestselling author of erotic novels. There have long been whispers about her hot, non-working actor-husband and his wandering eye, but this season the focus is on the rift that has opened between her and Brett, former best friends--and resentment soon breeds contempt. The Favorite Sister explores the invisible barriers that prevent women from rising up the ranks in today's America--and offers a scathing take on the oft-lionized bonds of sisterhood, and the relentless pressure to stay young, relevant, and salable.

Review quote

*** PRAISE FOR LUCKIEST GIRL ALIVE BY JESSICA KNOLL [A] huge summer read . . . one of those great stories that you can't put down!"--Reese Witherspoon, InStyle "The perfect page-turner to start your summer."--People (Book of the Week) "Dark, twisty . . . razor-sharp writing . . . propulsive prose . . . [The] reveal is a real doozy--a legitimately shocking, completely unputdownable sequence that unfolds like a slow-motion horror film. It instantly elevates Luckiest Girl . . . and that momentum keeps going until its final pages."--Entertainment Weekly "Loved Gone Girl? We promise [Luckiest Girl Alive is] just as addictive."--Good Housekeeping "A pulse-pounding, jaw-dropping novel about how tragedy twists and shapes lives."--InTouch (A-) "When Ani FaNelli wants something, she gets it: the job, the body, the man. What starts as a Mean Girls-seeming story line transforms into something so dark, so plot-twistingly intense that...well, actually, no spoilers here." --Marie Claire "A knockout debut novel . . . completely enthralling . . . devilishly dark and fun."--Publishers Weekly "[Ani FaNelli is] a cross between Sex and the City's Carrie Bradshaw and Gone Girl's Amy Dunne. . . . Knoll's debut truly delivers and will keep readers engaged until the end."--Library Journal "This is going to be the book you insist all your friends read this summer. . . . [A] clever, cunning satire on the female condition in the 21st century."--Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel
