Title: An Anonymous Girl
Author: Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen
Pages: 375
Publishing: January 8th 2019 by St. Martin's Press


The next novel of psychological suspense and obsession from the authors of the blockbuster bestseller The Wife Between Us.

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.

Question #1: Could you tell a lie without feeling guilt?

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.

Question #2: Have you ever deeply hurt someone you care about?

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.

Question #3: Should a punishment always fit the crime?

From the authors of the blockbuster bestseller The Wife Between Us comes an electrifying new novel about doubt, passion, and just how much you can trust someone.


An Anonymous Girl was a very interesting read, and it definitely held my attention! There weren't really any bad points to the novel, but there wasn't really anything that truly stuck out to me either. It was entertaining and fun and I enjoyed it while I was reading, but it seems like one of those novels that I won't really remember reading a few months down the road. I liked the characters and the plot, but it just didn't jump out at me. 

With that said, I really enjoyed reading this book and I would recommend it to thriller/suspense readers. Just because the story wasn't super memorable doesn't mean it wasn't an entertaining read! Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin's Press for sending this novel in exchange for and honest review.

Rating 3/5
