I was intrigued by this book from the beginning.In the first lines we meet Any (TifAny) Fannelli, a very assertive, shallow and at times aggressive 28 year old fashion magazine writer living in New York. At first, Any’s life seems to be the perfect picture.She’s engaged to Luke Harrison,blue-blooded Wall street financier and seemingly the perfect groom. Any also works for Women’s Magazine and is in line for a promotion.She’s planning the perfect wedding. Any’s current life seems light years far away from her middle class suburban upbringing where she grew up smothered by a pretentious mother and a detached father.But nothing matters to her now because she has finally made it. She has achieved what she always dreamed of or hasn’t she? Everything however will start unraveling when a documentary team asked her to be part of a film about a tragedy that happened in high school which impacted everyone involved in more ways that they would ever know.
The book is told from the point of view of Any where she first paints us this manicured, perfectly etched life that she is living and even when things start unraveling, she is still scared to be honest with herself because of the way life circumstances have hit her making her an emotionally immature woman who isn’t ready to grow up.She’s the kind of anti-heroine that we are getting used to see lately such as in “Gone girl” but what differentiates Any from others is her redeeming capabilities, the big question is really is it too late?
