This week we’ve chosen Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll. Her perfect life is a perfect lie… Ani FaNelli is the woman who has it all: the glamorous job, the designer wardrobe, the handsome and rich fiancé. But behind her sharp edges and meticulously crafted facade lies the darkest of pasts…
When a documentary producer invites Ani to tell her side of the chilling and violent incident that took place when she was a teenager at the prestigious Bradley school, she hopes it will be an opportunity to prove how far she's turned her life around since then. She'll even let the production company film her lavish wedding, the final step in her transformation.
But as the wedding and filming converge, Ani's past threatens to come back and haunt her. And as her immaculate veneer starts to crack, she is forced to question: will breaking her silence destroy all that she has worked for – or, will it at long last, set Ani free? We have a copy of Luckiest Girl Alive available to borrow from the library. This week’s pick is sponsored by Oshin the library mascot! ... See MoreSee Less
Get Online Week is the UK’s biggest digital inclusion campaign. More than 11 years ago, a date in October was first marked out to bring digital inclusion to national attention and Get Online Week was born. Since then the campaign has grown into a week-long, annual celebration, with thousands of events taking place each year, giving everyone the chance to find the help they need to improve their digital skills.
In 2018 there are still 4.3 million people in the UK with no Basic Digital Skills and 11.3 million people have only limited abilities online.
