An Anonymous Girl – Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen | A Book Review

An Anonymous Girl - Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen

Title: An Anonymous Girl

Author: Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen

Genre: Mystery Thriller

About the book: It’s a standalone that follows Jessica Farris who agrees to be a test subject in a psychological study about ethics and morality, because she wants to earn money for her family. But the lines begin to blur as Dr. Shield’s experiments move from the exam room to real life. Jessica’s behaviour is manipulated, and she finds herself caught in a web of deceit.

First impressions: The premise piqued my interest. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I enjoyed the beginning of the story and learning more about the study conducted by the psychiatrist. Jessica had to answer some tough, thought-provoking questions that got me wondering how I would answer.

Characters: The book mainly revolves around Jessica and Dr. Shields. They were both interesting characters with difficult pasts. Their juxtaposition helped to highlight their similarities and differences. While I didn’t always agree with the decisions they made, I could understand their reasoning behind them.

Quote:

“Every lifetime contains these pivot points—sometimes flukes of destiny, sometimes seemingly preordained—that shape and eventually cement one’s path.”

Writing: It’s a little over 425 pages with short chapters that alternate between Jessica’s and Dr. Shield’s perspectives. The pacing of the plot slows down in the middle but picks up at the end. I enjoyed seeing the cat-and-mouse element unfold. The novel also explores sensitive issues like suicide.

Final thoughts: Some events are easier to predict, but the authors included a few twists and turns along the way. The ending fits well with the rest of the story. If you’re looking to read about psychology and morality, I’d recommend An Anonymous Girl. It makes you think about what you would do in tough situations.
