This is a Summary & Analysis of Luckiest Girl Alive.

The novel moves between past and present easily, treating issues of inclusion and belonging, before finally presenting TifAni as achieving self-acceptance, extricating herself from a situation that would not have been hopeless but would have condemned her to a life of pretense and artificiality.

The characters was very hard to like, but at the same time it was easy to see why she was who she was. I liked the book. ...
Ok book, not what I was expecting. I think they marketed it incorrectly. There was NO twist in the plot and even though the main character turns out to be a victim and survivor by the end of the book,...
I found this book to be rather depressing and fatalistic....
I hated the characters at first. in particular, the twenty something self involved woman, Ani. Keep reading. Bit by bit we learn what is making her tick. Great storytelling. ...
wow this book blew me away, sometimes making me cringe because of the subject matter but overall a very good read...
