An Anonymous Girl by Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen

An Anonymous Girl

Jessica (Jess) Farris is a makeup artist living in New York City. Always looking for ways to earn some extra cash, she learns of an opportunity to participate in a study and make some serious money for what she thinks will be a one time session. What first seems to be a harmless exercise conducted by the mysterious Dr. Shields turns out to be just the beginning of a tangled web of lies, deceit and manipulation that threatens to consume Jessica’s life and well being.

What a heck of a ride! Talk about psychological thrillers, this was just plain crazy at times…crazy good. Every time I though I had someone or something figured out, another angle was presented. Don’t get me started on the unreliable narrators as no one seemed willing to present their true face for fear of being vulnerable, with substantially good reason. I’m not certain if there were any likable characters here but I was rooting for Jess. And, even when I thought I knew the basic answers, it still wasn’t enough to calm my racing heart.

I love listening to these kind of stories, especially when performed by great narrators. They don’t perform any better than Julia Whelan and in this story she shows why she appears on a lot of favorites lists. She was Jess, or at least she convinced me of that. It was my first time listening to Barrie Kreinik, who just nailed Dr. Shields, and I hope not the last.

Wish I could share more but you really, really wouldn’t want me to. It’s a perfect book for group discussion and I’m so fortunate I’m participating in one. Though it’s not without flaws, this was just mesmerizing!

  1. Dang! See, this is why I really need to find a lending library that does audio, preferably in English (I live in a French-speaking province.) I feel like I’m missing out on some good reads here.

      1. THey do have great libraries here, in QC, just not a lot of English books, and audio? All in French, unfortunately, and while I could get by, I’m sure it’s not the same. I did cost buying, but the price is prohibitive. *sigh*

  2. Terrific post Jonetta. I loved this book! So much so, in fact, that when I saw a make-up artist at a restaurant recently I had to ask if she had the book. Of course, she thought I was insane, people often do, but it was a great start to a wonderful conversation about being a make-up artist in Las Vegas – LOL!
